"For me, as a Roman Catholic, I'm prepared to accept the teachings of my church," Biden told [Tom] Brokaw. "I'm prepared, as a matter of faith, to accept that life begins at the moment of conception."
"But that is my judgment. For me to impose that judgment on everyone else, who is equally - and maybe even more - devout than I am, seems to me is inappropriate in a pluralistic society."
"...I have voted against curtailing the right - criminalizing abortion...I have voted against telling everyone else in the country that they have to accept my religiously based view that it's a moment of conception."
How refreshing it would be if every political leader felt this way.
