Ryan and Biden Talk Abortion

Well, the moderator asked for a personal answer, we got personal answers. “My wife and I, when we had the 7 week ultrasound for our first child ... our baby was in the shape of a bean... to this day, we have nicknamed our Liza Bean,” Ryan said. “I believe that life begins at conception … our position is to oppose abortion, with exceptions in cases of rape and incest.” Biden responded saying “With regards to abortion, I accept my church's take—life begins with conception. But I refuse to impose that on others ... unlike my friend here.” Raddatz asked if people who are pro-choice should be worried if Romney is elected. “The next president will get 1 or 2 Supreme Court nominations,” Biden warned. “That’s how close Roe v. Wade is.”
