President Joe Biden warned on Wednesday that if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court, the court will strive to overturn other landmark judgments defending American liberties, such as access to contraception and marriage between people of the same sexual orientation.
“It is one thing to deny a woman the right to make decisions about her own body. It is quite another for a court decision to say, in effect, that there is no such thing as a right to privacy. if you took the time to read the opinion. If the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage is upheld, they intend to challenge it in court.” Reports from the event’s pool indicate that President Joe Biden delivered the remarks on Thursday night in Chicago, at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee.
According to him, the court would make the same decision if the Supreme Court were to adopt the ruling that was made in Griswold v. Connecticut in 1965 in support of marital privacy.
The President’s words constitute his most forceful warning to date if the draft judgment on Roe that was leaked by the Supreme Court becomes public. Just a few days before he made these words, Senate Democrats prevailed in their opposition to the Women’s Health Protection Act, a bill that would have aimed to maintain access to abortion for women across the country.
On Wednesday, President Joe Biden said to a group of reporters that he plans to talk more in depth about the achievements of his administration as well as the challenges that it will confront in the years to come.
Joe Biden, who has been a devout Catholic his entire life, has said that the reason he is opposed to abortion is because of his faith, but he does not believe that other people in the society should be forced to take into account his individual beliefs. In response to the publishing of the paper, the White House issued an appeal to Congress to enact legal protections for abortion, an effort that has stalled owing to opposition from Republicans.
