. . .Already in Deep Trouble with women voters for (among other things) his shameless performance in Senate's Anita Hill hearings (vs Clarence Thomas), less then 24 hr after affirming support for Hyde Amendment, draft-dodger Joe Biden turns & runs from an onslaught from female voters.
Biden reverses course to support repeal of Hyde Amendment
(CNN) Former Vice President Joe Biden says he now wants to throw out the Hyde Amendment, dropping his long-held support for the measure that blocks federal funds from being used for most abortions amid criticism from his 2020 Democratic rivals.
"If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone's ZIP code," he said.
The Hyde Amendment is a four-decade-old ban on federal dollars being used for abortions except in cases of rape, incest or when the woman's life is in danger.
Biden's campaign on Wednesday said he still supported the Hyde Amendment -- a position that put him to the right of all other leading 2020 Democratic contenders, as well as Hillary Clinton and the party's platform in 2016.
