In 1981, the “Biden amendment” to the Foreign Assistance Act banned any American aid from being used in research related to abortions.

June 5th, 2019, Joe Biden continues his 40+ year support for the Hyde Amendment.
June 6th, Twitter pushback to Biden support of the Hyde Amendment
June 6th, night, Joe Biden caves and drops a 40+-year position to appease progs. Now supports taxpayer-funded abortion, from conception to crowning.
