Medved: Taxpayer Funding for Abortion is Not Pro-Choice


Joe Biden’s abandonment of his long-standing support for the Hyde Amendment has not only damaged his campaign, but should bring permanent changes to the language we use on the abortion issue.

Biden and other Catholic Democrats often insisted that they personally disapproved of abortion, but they didn’t want government to interfere with a woman’s so-called “Right to Choose.”

But if the Hyde Amendment is removed, that means the “Right to Choose” becomes a right to government funding for terminating your pregnancy. Many of those who said they wanted government to stay out of the abortion decision, now insist that government must get directly involved—by providing federal funding.

Jones said he would not support such legislation. In fact, he said once the child is born, he would “be there for that child.” In the astounding statement Jones said, “That’s where I become a right to lifer.”

That means that there is no point before the birth of the child when Doug Jones running for the United States Senate in Alabama would consider himself pro-life.
