During the vice presidential debate, Paul Ryan reiterated his opposition to abortion. Joe Biden explained that he’s personally opposed to abortion but doesn’t believe in protecting the unborn. President Obama has previously expressed his own position, which might best be described as not being opposed to abortion either personally or as a matter of policy (see the first 30 seconds of this clip):

John McCormack has noted how, in conveying his unwillingness as an Illinois state senator to vote to outlaw the killing of a baby who has actually survived an attempted abortion, Obama delicately and compassionately talked about how such a “fetus, or child — however way you want to describe it — is now outside the mother’s womb and…not just out limp and dead.”
