A resurfaced 2006 interview by former Vice President Joe Biden may again put his views on abortion under scrutiny in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary.
An interview Biden gave ahead of his 2008 run — unearthed by CNN’s KFile on Thursday and later reported on by The New York Times — shows the current Democratic front-runner signaling support for Roe v. Wade but not full-blown support for abortion as a “choice and a right.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“I do not view abortion as a choice and a right. I think it’s always a tragedy, and I think that it should be rare and safe, and I think we should be focusing on how to limit the number of abortions. There ought to be able to have a common ground and consensus as to do that,” Biden said in the interview with Texas Monthly.
Biden adds that abortion is “always a tragic decision made” and the focus should be on “how to deal with women not wanting abortions.”
In the interview from 13 years ago, Biden called himself the “odd man out” in his party for his views.
