Abortion and SCOTUS Become Presidential Campaign Issues

Hosted by

Image-for-WWLA.jpgIn last week's vice presidential debate, Vice President Joe Biden and Congressman Paul Ryan disagreed last week on questions central to controversy about women's rights. Moderator Martha Raddatz asked both about abortion.  Biden said his Catholic religion required him to oppose it in his own life, but that he would not impose his views on others. Ryan, who's also Catholic, said "elected representatives," not "unelected judges," should make that call. We hear how abortion and the right to appoint Supreme Court Justices have become issues in the presidential campaign.
