Dem: Paying for Abortions Is the Same as Funding Our Troops

Dem: Paying for Abortions Is the Same as Funding Our Troops

Unigka Gee, 36, a poll respondent from Houston, said she voted for O'Rourke when he ran for the U.S. Senate a year ago.

The criticism came in response to an NBC News report published Wednesday that revealed Biden continues to support the amendment, which allows for exceptions only in cases of rape, incest or when a pregnant person's life is at serious risk. "Under my Medicare-for-all plan, we will repeal the Hyde Amendment".

The former vice president's Dollars 1.7 trillion plan, which seeks net-zero emissions by 2050, quickly faced criticism for including unattributed passages lifted from other organizations' previously published documents, drawing fire from President Donald Trump.

The Democratic congressman, a former Marine Corps officer, went even further with his position to repeal the Hyde Amendment. They argue the ban prevents the poorest women gaining access to abortions. "He was in a band", she said. Thirty percent of black women and 24 percent of Hispanic women are enrolled in the program, as opposed to 14 percent of white women.

"Supporting Hyde isn't good policy or politics".

Boston Mayor Marty Walsh will host 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden on Wednesday to discuss climate change and tour the park being built in memory of Boston Marathon bombing victim Martin Richard.

The pile-on within hours by at least 11 of the candidates in the 2020 race for the party's nomination was the clearest collective push-back against the popular former vice president since he entered the race in April. Biden falls short of Washington Gov. Jay Inslee's pitch for $3 trillion in federal spending over a decade, which Inslee says will spur $6 trillion more in private investment. But years later, he voted again to remove them. "Biden's campaign told NBC he would be open to repealing Hyde if abortion avenues now protected under Roe were threatened". "It can't stay", he said to the volunteer last month. "I marched with tens of thousands of others to change attitudes".

In the long run, however, the incident may have done more damage by focusing renewed interest on the 30-year-old scandal over his 1987 campaign speech copied from Neil Kinnock, the leader of Britain's Labor Party, and the discovery he plagiarized a paper at Syracuse law school.

Other 2020 candidates couldn't agree more. Amy Klobuchar, also voiced support for ending the Hyde Amendment. Sanders' "Medicare for All" health care plan would essentially kill the Hyde Amendment.

Biden's plan is similar in size and scope to what former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke has proposed.

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has campaigned as an unapologetic feminist, tweeted "reproductive rights are human rights, period".
