The Top 5 Attacks on Biden’s Hyde Amendment Position

A rope-line interview in which an activist asked former Vice President Joe Biden about an abortion law and a subsequent story about his previous positions on abortion has completely derailed the Democratic frontrunner’s week, throwing him off message and providing an opening to his fellow contenders to attack him.

“I’m an ACLU Rights for All voter, and I have one quick question for you,” a woman named Nina said to Biden on May 4 in South Carolina. “And that is: will you commit to abolishing the Hyde Amendment, which hurts poor women and women of color?”

“Yes,” Biden replied. “Yes, and by the way, ACLU member, I got a near-perfect voting record my entire career.”

But earlier this week, Biden’s campaign backtracked on those remarks and indicated the former vice president does in fact support the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funds being used for abortions.

That flip flop set off a firestorm in the Democratic presidential primary. Nearly every top-tier candidate blasted Biden, who claimed he misunderstood Nina’s question from the video above.

Below are the top 5 attacks on Biden from his fellow 2020 contenders:

1.Kamala Harris

2. Elizabeth Warren

3. Bernie Sanders

4. Beto O’Rourke

5. Kirsten Gillibrand

It doesn’t appear that South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg attacked Biden, directly or indirectly, on this issue, but he did recently reiterate his support for the Hyde Amendment during a televised town hall meeting on MSNBC on Monday.
