On Friday, the anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion-on-demand in the United States, the Joe Biden/Kamala Harris administration released a shocking statement, vigorously defending their pro-abortion stance.
Read the statement below:
Today marks the 48th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade.
In the past four years, reproductive health, including the right to choose, has been under relentless and extreme attack. We are deeply committed to making sure everyone has access to care – including reproductive health care – regardless of income, race, zip code, health insurance status, or immigration status.
The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to codifying Roe v. Wade and appointing judges that respect foundational precedents like Roe. We are also committed to ensuring that we work to eliminate maternal and infant health disparities, increase access to contraception, and support families economically so that all parents can raise their families with dignity. This commitment extends to our critical work on health outcomes around the world.
As the Biden-Harris Administration begins in this critical moment, now is the time to rededicate ourselves to ensuring that all individuals have access to the health care they need.
The statement comes after the Donald Trump administration defended the right to human life by defunding Planned Parenthood, reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which barred federal funds from going to foreign abortions, among other proposals. Biden has since rescinded the Mexico City Policy and has pledged to fund abortion facilities like Planned Parenthood with taxpayer dollars. President Trump was the first U.S. president to speak before the March for Life.
Since Roe v. Wade, over 62 million babies have been killed through abortions.
