Presumptive Democrat Nominee Joe Biden Is No Moderate, Least Of All On Abortion

With Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders officially ending his presidential campaign Wednesday, former Vice President Joe Biden is now the apparent Democratic nominee to challenge Donald Trump this fall.

Biden ran through the primary on a platform of moderate pragmatism to counter the left-wing forces guiding the Democratic Party through a turbulent primary, with Sanders at one point eclipsing Biden as the frontrunner throughout February until Biden’s great political comeback with a South Carolina victory by the end of the month.

Yet Biden is no moderate, particularly on abortion. Democrats made it pretty clear throughout the primary that none of the candidates were anywhere close to moderate on this issue anyway. It was nearly a scandal when during one of the Democratic debates Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard quipped a phrase from former President Bill Clinton from the 1990s arguing that abortion ought to be “safe, legal, and rare” and declared that late-term abortion should be banned. Other Democrats balked at the idea that there can be any room for pro-life Democrats in the party.
