In a newly unearthed video from 2006, Joseph R. Biden Jr. said he supported Roe v. Wade but did not view abortion as “a choice and a right” — remarks that raise further questions about how he views abortion rights as he runs for the Democratic presidential nomination and faces pressure over his position on the issue. “I do not view abortion as a choice and a right. I think it’s always a tragedy,” Mr. Biden said in a videotaped interview with Texas Monthly, resurfaced on Thursday by CNN. “I think it should be rare and safe,” he added. “I think we should be focusing on how to limit the number of abortions.” https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/13/...rtion-2006.html#click=https://t.co/em8KfRbrAK So in order to get the Democratic nomination Biden will have to disavow previously held positions that are probably held by the majority of the country. There is no way he gets the nomination unless he says he is for abortion on demand up until birth. That’s where the base of the Democratic Party is right now.
