Joe Biden vows to protect the right to abortion after the Supreme Court overturns the Roe v. Wade case

After the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the groundbreaking Law vs. Wade decision on Friday, U.S. President Joe Biden promised to take every step his administration could to protect the right to abortion, and to voters. He called for the election of state and federal authorities to vote for the procedure.

President Biden has nominated the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and restore state rights to limit abortion as a sad day for the court and the state.

“It’s a sad day for both the court and the country. This decision should not be the final decision,” Biden said in a speech. During his remarks at the White House on Friday, Biden added that at some point “it only surprises me,” and that poor women will be hit hardest by the decision.

Biden called on Congress to take action to systematize the protection of abortion into federal law, emphasizing the importance of casting ballots in favor of candidates for abortion during this fall’s elections.

The US president called on Congress to bring the protection of abortion back to law, pointing out the midterm elections in November, saying “Roe is on ballot this fall.” He urged peaceful protests and said violence was never acceptable. “This decision should not be the last word,” Biden said.

Biden said the Supreme Court’s ruling would remove constitutional rights from Americans and bring the country back 150 years. “The court literally puts America back 150 years ago,” he added.

The Supreme Court ruled that the Roe v. Wade case was withdrawn, the constitutional rights of abortion, which had been around for nearly 50 years, could be eliminated, and that the state could regulate abortion practices. The decision was announced on Friday by a majority of conservative judges. Joe Biden vows to protect the right to abortion after the Supreme Court overturns the Roe v. Wade case
