On Monday night, shockwaves hit the nation as a draft Supreme Court decision appeared to show that the court would strike down the controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized widespread abortion in America. Joe Biden doubled down on his support for unlimited abortion despite him claiming to have “devout Catholic” faith:

“We do not know whether this draft is genuine, or whether it reflects the final decision of the Court. 

With that critical caveat, I want to be clear on three points about the cases before the Supreme Court. 

 First, my administration argued strongly before the Court in defense of Roe v. Wade. We said that Roe is based on “a long line of precedent recognizing ‘the Fourteenth Amendment’s concept of personal liberty’… against government interference with intensely personal decisions.” I believe that a woman’s right to choose is fundamental, Roe has been the law of the land for almost fifty years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned. 

Second, shortly after the enactment of Texas law SB 8 and other laws restricting women’s reproductive rights, I directed my Gender Policy Council and White House Counsel’s Office to prepare options for an Administration response to the continued attack on abortion and reproductive rights, under a variety of possible outcomes in the cases pending before the Supreme Court. We will be ready when any ruling is issued.

 

Third, if the Court does overturn Roe, it will fall on our nation’s elected officials at all levels of government to protect a woman’s right to choose. And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November.  At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice Senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law.”

Since Roe was decided, over 63 million babies have been brutally killed in the womb due to abortion violence.

fact: the Supreme Court does NOT make a decision on whether a woman should or should not be able to have an abortion. The Supreme Court DOES NOT MAKE LAWS. The Supreme Court ONLY has ONE responsibility, and that is, for those of you doing your nails during Civics class,; IT’S TO MAKE SURE YOUR RIGHTS UNDER THE CONSTITUTION ARE PROTECTED AND TO ASERTAIN WHETHER ANY PROPOSED OR EXISTING LAWS ARE IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CONSTITUTION. …SO,,,,if a law is NOT in line with the Constitution it should be deemed UNCONSTITUTIONAL…and WHAT that means is that your elected members in the House of Represenatives ( WHERE LAWS ACTUALLY ARE MADE)..did not do a very good job, AND that they should try again and do it RIGHT. So the Supreme Court DOES NOT deny your rights it PROTECTS your rights..and anything else is POLITICAL NONSENSE! It would be nice if Schumer and Pelosi understood that, but all they care about is Political gamesmanship.

There are couples who are unable to have a baby who are willing to adopt those who are unwanted! I know two couples who went to the hospital and legally adopted an unwanted baby when it was born.
