Will Tim Kaine Flip-Flop on Taxpayer-Funded Abortion Now That He's Hillary's Running Mate?


The one modest abortion restriction Kaine has supported is the Hyde amendment, which bans federal funding for abortions under Medicaid, except in cases of rape, incest, or life endangerment. For the first time ever, the Democrats' 2016 platform explicitly calls for repealing the Hyde amendment and allowing unlimited federal funding of elective abortions for Medicaid recipients. West Virginia senator and pro-life Democrat Joe Manchin called the change to the platform's abortion plank "crazy.""I haven't been informed of that change, but I'm going to check it out," Tim Kaine told THE WEEKLY STANDARD's Jenna Lifhits earlier this month. "I have traditionally been a supporter of the Hyde amendment, but I'll check it out."It's not clear why Kaine thought he'd need to check out the language to decide if he was still a supporter of the Hyde amendment.
