FURIOUS President Joe Biden BLASTS Supreme Court Over Decision To Overturn Roe VS Wade – ‘Sad Day’ For America

President Joe Biden has declared Friday a very sad day. Biden has weighed in on the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn a landmark ruling which established a nationwide right to safe and legal abortion. It is now believed 26 states are either certain or likely to make moves to ban abortion outright, with clinics in some states having already stopped performing terminations on Friday after the decision. Here’s what you need to know.

“This landmark case protected woman’s right to choose, her right to make intensely personal decisions with her doctor, free from the interference of politics,” he said from the White House.

Biden added that without the protection of Roe, “the health and life of women in this nation are now at risk.” The president blamed his predecessor Donald Trump for the court’s decision, since Trump appointed the three justices who made the decision possible.

However, Trump took credit for the ruling himself, calling it “the biggest WIN for LIFE in a generation,” in a statement. The former president said the ruling “was only made possible because I delivered everything as promised, including nominating and getting three highly respected and strong Constitutionalists confirmed to the United States Supreme Court.”

The case that triggered Roe’s demise after nearly a half-century, known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, is related to a Mississippi law that banned nearly all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Dobbs was by far the most significant and controversial dispute of the court’s term. It also posed the most serious threat to abortion rights since Planned Parenthood v. Casey, in which the Supreme Court reaffirmed Roe.

That said, an early and unprecedented leak of a draft of the majority opinion in May sent shockwaves across the country and galvanized activists on both sides of the debate. It also cast a pall over the nation’s highest court, which immediately opened an investigation to find the source of the leak. Following the leak and subsequent ruling, supporters and opponents of the decision gathered outside the nation’s highest court.
