Earlier this month, Joe Biden said voters “don’t deserve to know” if he would pack the Supreme Court with a bunch of liberal activists who would keep abortion on demand legal for decades to come.

Apparently Biden still thinks voters don’t “deserve” to know because he mostly refused to answer the question once again during his ABC Town hall last night. Biden continued to dodge questions about his position on court packing when asked about Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

But the pro-abortion former vice president did eventually appear to support packing the court if the Senate confirms Judge Amy Coney Barrett.

George Stephanopoulos asked Biden: “If the Senate votes on Coney Barrett’s nomination before the election, you are open to expanding the court?”

“I’m open to considering what happens from that point on,” Biden replied.

“Don’t voters have a right to know where you stand?” Stephanopoulos asked.

“They do have a right to know where I stand, and they’ll have a right to know where I stand before they vote,” Biden said.

Asked if he would come out with a “clear position” before Election Day, he added: “Yes. Depending on how they handle this.”

By “how they handle this,” Biden indicated he meant it had to do with Barrett’s nomination and he said “It depends on how much they rush this.”

During the presidential debate the other week, Biden refused to say whether or not he would pack the Supreme Court.

“Whatever the position I take, that will be the issue,” Biden said when asked if he will pack the court. “The issue is the American people should speak. You should go out and vote. You are voting now. Vote and let your senators know how strongly you feel. Vote now. Make sure you in fact let people know.”

“He’s not answering the question,” President Donald Trump responded. 

“I’m not going to answer that question because,” Biden said before Trump interjected, “Why wouldn’t you answer that question?”

“Would you shut up, man?” Biden responded before debate moderator Chris Wallace told the candidates that they were moving on to the next segment. 

Regardless of whether he pushes to pack the Supreme Court or not, Biden will only name Supreme Court justices who are committed to keeping unlimited abortions in place, meaning another 62 million babies will die from abortion.
