58. See the article From 2015

 

Tom Perez, you know the guy who leads The Democratic Party, supported the Mello. But Bernie stumps for the guy and he is the devil.

It’s funny how the “tent” is always big enough for a Senator like Manchin who actively votes for anti abortion legislation and supports anti abortion judges. But a local mayor is beyond the pale and anyone who stumps for him is evil.


Just to be clear, Bernie doesn’t now, or never has, harbored any pro life stances or sponsored any pro life/anti abortion laws.

We are not even in the same universe when it comes to support for abortion issues.


Vice President Biden's comments about abortion in America interview kick off new conversations


In an exclusive interview with America released at the beginning of this week, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. affirmed that pro-life people "absolutely, positively" are welcome in the Democratic party and that he believes, as a Catholic, that "abortion is always wrong." His comments, very different from most contributions to the political conversation about abortion, are blurring some long-established lines in the culture wars and generating significant interest in the media and among commentators.

Also:

Voting for the Hyde amendment which to this day restricts any federal funds to be used for abortion.

Saying Roe v. Wade “went too far” and he didn’t think “that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.”


In 1981, successfully proposed an amendment to the Foreign Assistance Act, barring US aid from being used for biomedical research related to abortions. He has had a lasting legacy in this respect: to this day, the amendment has remained a part of the laws covering foreign assistance.


I’ll take Bernie’s record any day.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Bernie Sanders
