Biden is fixing his climate plan that failed to cite sources

Unigka Gee, 36, a poll respondent from Houston, said she voted for O'Rourke when he ran for the U.S. Senate a year ago.

New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, who has campaigned as an unapologetic feminist, tweeted "reproductive rights are human rights, period".

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, shared a video of himself calling to abolish the measure.

The poll, released Wednesday, is one of many conducted in various states in the past month that show Biden a threat to Trump's re-election. Biden comes out ahead with 30 percent of Democratic voters in the state, followed by 16 percent for O'Rourke, 15 percent for Sanders and 11 percent for Warren.

It highlighted the fault lines in a sensitive debate of the hot-button abortion issue in the run-up to next year's elections between a Democratic nominee and President Donald Trump. Kamala Harris of California, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of MA have all co-sponsored legislation to overturn the amendment. Tammy Duckworth introduced in March. He states that under his Medicare for All plan he will repeal the Hyde Amendment, inevitably using federal funds to give your hard-earned tax dollars to fund abortion.

"Biden's continued support for Hyde not only sets him apart from the rest of his 2020 Democratic competitors", Przybyla writes, "but it may surprise progressive groups like the American Civil Liberties Union, which promoted a recent tweet by one of its activists appearing to get Biden to commit to ending Hyde during a rope-line exchange in SC". When the woman asks again, Biden responds that "it can't stay".

On the worldwide front, Biden calls out China as the world's biggest coal polluter and says he'd make all future bilateral deals with Beijing contingent on carbon reductions. That policy is broadly opposed by Democrats and was repealed by Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, only to be re-instated by George W. Bush and Donald Trump. "The Hyde Amendment does not prevent organizations in the U.S. that provide lifesaving health care services for women from receiving the federal funding they need", Biden's campaign said. And understand this: Women still got abortions.

"There is #NoMiddleGround on women's rights".

"We're fine with any of the candidates utilizing our policies and publicly available documents in their climate, infrastructure, or jobs plans", Williams said in a statement.

What about front-runner Joe Biden?

Abortion rights advocates argue it and other anti-abortion efforts like the closure of local reproductive health clinics disproportionately affect the poor, who have fewer resources to spend on health services or to travel to distant facilities for treatment. Trump has made two conservative appointments to the Supreme Court, creating the potential that the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion could be overturned.

"I refuse to impose my religious beliefs on other people".

"Several citations, some from sources cited in other parts of the plan, were inadvertently left out of the final version of the 22-page document", the campaign told CNN.
