President Joe Biden stated on Friday that he does not think that life begins at conception, after previously stating the opposite. Biden has previously stated that life begins at conception. It's just like him to change his views based on the new flavor of the month by the radical left.
Biden made the remark in response to a reporter's inquiry regarding Texas' new law protecting unborn newborns, stating that he remained a "strong supporter of Roe v. Wade."
“I respect people who think that — who don’t support Roe v. Wade; I respect their views. I respect them — they — those who believe life begins at the moment of conception and all. I respect that,” Biden claimed. “Don’t agree, but I respect that. I’m not going to impose that on people.”
The Daily Caller News Foundation cited numerous times in the past in which Biden expressed his acceptance of the belief that life begins at conception.
In 2015, during an interview with America Media's Father Matt Malone, Biden said, “I am willing to accept that the moment of conception is the beginning of a human life and being, but I am not willing to say that to... people who hold a contrary view.”
During the 2012 vice presidential debate against then-candidate Paul Ryan, he stated, "With regard to abortion, I embrace my church's position on abortion as a — what we call de fide (doctrine?). At conception, life begins. That is the church's conclusion. In my personal life, I accept it.”

TRANSCRIPT PROVIDED VIA THE WHITE HOUSE:
REPORTER: Mr. President, on abortion rights in Texas, sir.
JOE BIDEN, PRESIDENT: Pardon me?
REPORTER: One question on abortion rights in Texas, sir. What would be your message to women in Texas? And what can your administration do to protect abortion rights on the federal level?
BIDEN: I’m late for going down. I’m going to talk about these things from Louisiana. But I have been — continue to be a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade. Number one. And the most pernicious thing about the Texas law: It sort of creates a vigilante system where people get rewards to go out to — anyway. And it just seems — I know this sounds ridiculous, almost un-American, what we’re talking about — not the debate about — and I under- — I respect people who think that — who don’t support Roe v. Wade; I respect their views. I respect them — they — those who believe life begins at the moment of conception and all. I respect that. Don’t agree, but I respect that. I’m not going to impose that on people. But what I was told — and I must tell you, I am not certain — I was told that there are possibilities within the existing law to have the Justice Department look and see whether there are things that can be done that can limit the independent action of individuals in enforcing a federal sys- — a state law. I don’t know enough to give you an answer yet. I’ve asked that to be checked. Thank you all very much.
