Joe Biden Claims Sole Credit for Abortion Rights—i.e. Legal Baby-Killing

If you believed everything Joe Biden says when he talks about himself, you would think he was the most consequential person when it came to every single progressive cause of his lifetime. When the issue of abortion came up during the New Hampshire debate, Biden claimed to be the reason why abortion is still legal in the United States.

First, he credited himself for Elena Kagan being on the Supreme Court as well as Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor. Biden then claimed to be the most important person for keeping abortion rights in America.

“I’m the reason why this right wasn’t taken away a long time ago because I almost single-handedly made sure that Robert Bork did not get on the Court.”

Really Joe? If it weren’t for you, abortion wouldn’t be legal?  It’s really something to see Joe claim to be the most consequential Democrat in history when he was in the U.S. Senate, and somehow more consequential than Barack Obama when he was his vice president.

And it’s also really sad, given how extreme the pro-abortion movement has become, that Joe would even want to brag about it.

Get off your high horse, Joe. It’s a really bad look for you.
