Biden No Longer Supports Measure Preventing Federal Funds For Abortions

Former Vice President and current presidential candidate Joe Biden is no longer supporting the Hyde Amendment.

That’s the measure that banned federal funds from being used in most abortions.

During a speech, Biden said “if I believe healthcare is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s zip code.”

The former vice president, however, says he makes “no apologies” for his previous support.

The change in position comes after Biden’s campaign said he still supported the amendment.

That lead to criticisms from his Democratic opponents, as well as organizations that advocate for abortion rights.
