Warren told reporters her position is "not about the politics, it's about what's right," in a tweet shared by NBC News reporter Ali Vitali.

Warren has called to end the Hyde Amendment and co-sponsors legislation to overturn the ban. 

Biden's campaign aides told The Hill he still supports the amendment preventing federal funds paying for abortion except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the woman. 

His support differs from all his fellow primary candidates in the crowded field.
