The debate over abortion just went nuclear.
The Democrats are enraged over a Supreme Court leak regarding Roe v. Wade.
But Joe Biden made one statement about abortion that just blew up in his face.
A rogue clerk at the Supreme Court is believed by many to have leaked a draft of a decision that could overturn Roe v. Wade, arguably the most controversial case in the court’s history.
Democrats have now made abortion the top issue going into the Midterm elections, mainly because they have nothing else to run on.
Joe Biden weighed in on the issue and said, “I believe that a woman’s right to choose is fundamental, Roe has been the law of the land for almost fifty years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned.”
However, Biden did not hold that belief in the past.
Ever the flimflam man, Biden voted to overturn Roe back in 1982.
The New York Times reported that with “Ronald Reagan . . . in power and Republicans controlling the Senate for the first time in decades, social conservatives pushed for a constitutional amendment to allow individual states to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court ruling that had made abortion legal nationwide several years earlier. The amendment – which the National Abortion Rights Action League called ‘the most devastating attack yet on abortion rights’ – cleared a key hurdle in the Senate Judiciary Committee in March 1982. Support came not only from Republicans but from a 39-year-old, second-term Democrat: Joseph R. Biden Jr.”
In addition to voting to send the abortion question back to the states, Biden also bragged about blocking pro-abortion funding.
In 1994, Biden wrote a letter to a constituent bragging that he has voted against abortion funding on 50 separate occasions. https://t.co/XiVbeBM32x

The 1982 amendment was scuttled, but came back a few months later.
The next time around, Biden voted against it.
At the time, he rationalized his initial vote by saying, “I’m probably a victim, or a product, however you want to phrase it, of my background . . . [The decision was] the single most difficult vote I’ve cast as a U.S. Senator.”
It’s quite telling that Biden said he was a “victim” of his Roman Catholic upbringing.
That illustrates how leftism supersedes religion for people on the Left.
After Biden won in 2020, the corporate-controlled press once tried to portray Biden as the most devout Catholic President in 50 years.
It’s farcical to suggest Biden is the most religious President in half a century when he admittedly betrayed his Catholic faith in favor of abortion.
Biden goes wherever the Democrat Party goes, and the party has gone to the fringes of the Left.
