You Are Either Opposed to China’s One Child Policy or You Cannot Call Yourself Pro-Choice (Unless You Are a Moron)

And of course, that “moron” option is extremely viable when we are talking about Vice President Joe Biden.
First, let’s establish that he is pro-choice:
I’ve stuck to my middle-of-the-road position on abortion for more than 30 years. I still vote against partial birth abortion and federal funding, and I’d like to make it easier for scared young mothers to choose not to have an abortion, but I will also vote against a constitutional amendment that strips a woman of her right to make her own choice.
That is from his book Promises to Keep, on page 105. The Amazon link allows you to search inside the book to verify that.
Now, here is what he said about China’s one-child policy. He was in China discussing their lack of a “safety net”
But as I was talking to some of your leaders, you share a similar concern here in China. You have no safety net. Your policy has been one which I fully understand — I’m not second-guessing — of one child per family. The result being that you’re in a position where one wage earner will be taking care of four retired people. Not sustainable.
No, Joe, that is not a pro-choice stand. That is a pro-abortion stand. Either that or you are a moron.
