Former Vice President and 2020 hopeful Joe Biden has a lot on his plate right now. He has so many skeletons already falling out of the closet that conservatives have easy pickings when it comes to drawing attention to questionable choices that have been lurking in the shadows. Even CNN’s polls show him slipping, which we reported in the article Biden’s ‘Honeymoon Glow’ is Fading, CNN Poll Data Shows.
Now, he’s drawing the ire of members of his own party as the reports came back that he continues to support the Hyde Amendment, the basics of which bans federal funding of abortions, with a couple of notable exceptions. I didn’t think I would ever find myself in agreement with a Democrat on that issue, but this is one exception.
This from TGP:
Left-wing groups lashed out at former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday over his continued support for the Hyde Amendment.
The 2020 presidential hopeful’s campaign confirmed to NBC that Biden still supports the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funding for abortions except in cases of rape, incest or if the mother’s life is in danger. Biden supports Roe v. Wade, but previously said his abortion stances are “middle of the road,” according to NBC.
The National Abortion Rights Action League spoke out against the Democratic candidate’s stance, saying it “further endangers” those “facing enormous hurdles.”
“There’s NO political or ideological excuse for @JoeBiden’s support for the Hyde Amendment, which translates into discrimination against poor women and women of color plain and simple,” NARAL tweeted. “His position further endangers people already facing enormous hurdles.”

The Planned Parenthood Action Fund spoke out against Biden as well.
From the Hyde Amendment to abortion bans, attacks on abortion access must stop. We deserve a president who agrees: EVERYONE deserves access to safe, legal abortion. #BeBoldEndHyde pic.twitter.com/aOAwx6AfYw

“The Democratic Party is crystal clear in supporting the right to safe, legal abortion and repealing the Hyde Amendment, a position held by the majority of voters,” said Executive Director of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund Kelley Robinson in a statement.
“Supporting Hyde isn’t good policy or politics,” Robinson continued. “We strongly encourage Joe Biden to speak to the people whose lives are impacted by this discriminatory policy and reevaluate his position.”
EMILY’s List, an American political action committee dedicated to helping Democratic pro-choice candidates obtain office, also criticized Biden.
“At a time when reproductive rights are under consistent attack, it’s unacceptable that a major Democratic nominee supports the Hyde Amendment,” said EMILY’s List President Stephanie Schriock in a statement.
“We hope that Vice President Biden will reconsider this position and what it means to millions of women,” she added. “There’s simply too much at risk.”

The tenacity these groups are displaying is akin to that of utter desperation, is it not? Recent laws passed in several states which are commonly called “Heartbeat Laws” are signaling loud and clear that more people favor preserving the lives of the unborn more than they approve of infanticide.
I believe this is as it should be. Our nation’s very survival depends on new generations to take our place, and if we allow so many of them to be killed, to whom will we pass the torch? Abortion is NOT another form of “birth control.” It is murder, plain and simple, without regard to the length of time the woman has been with child.
The abortion clinics have turned a gruesome practice into a profit center, and are guilty of partnering with leading universities who use the harvested body parts for “research,” the results of which have been inconclusive at best. It’s literally murder-for-hire, in my opinion.
If nothing else, it’s imperative that we make it clear that we see that abortion is NOT health care. Even so-called feminists should be smart enough to realize the fact that if the birth rate is split at an even 50/50, it means there hundreds of thousands of future women being killed at the hands of the abortion butchers, and that alone should be enough to make them scream “FOUL!” They’re obviously blinded by an ideology that focuses on the here-and-now self without a view of the future. It’s NOT the woman’s body that is being destroyed; it is a new life that has untold potential being snuffed out in the name of “women’s rights” or “reproductive rights.”
Have you gotten your copy of my book yet? I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
