Joe Biden Speaks Out About Supreme Court's 'Cruel' Overturning of Roe V. Wade

“Today, it is not hyperbole to suggest, is a very solemn moment. It’s a sad day for the court, and for the county,” he said, calling the decision “cruel” and pointing out that the Court “didn’t limit” access to abortion: “they simply took it away.”

“Now with Roe gone, let’s be very clear, the health and life of women in this nation are now at risk. I believe Roe v Wade was the correct decision, as a matter of constitutional law and application of a fundamental right to privacy and liberty in matters of family and personal autonomy…three justices named by one President, Donald Trump, were the core of today’s decision to upend the scales of justice and eliminate a fundamental right for women in this country.”

Biden also demanded that “Congress restore the protections of Roe v Wade as federal law.”

“With your vote you can act…you can have the final word. This is not over,” he continued.

“This fall, Roe is on the ballot,” he continued, adding he would “do all in my power to protect a women’s right in states where they will face the consequences of today’s decision.”

“Make no mistake, this decision is a culmination of a deliberate effort over decades to upset the balance of our law,” he said, calling it a “tragic error” to “expressly take away a Constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many Americans.”

A former President also just spoke out about the decision.
