President Joe Biden Politico This suggests that the US Supreme Court may be poised to overturn the groundbreaking 1973 Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion nationwide.
Politico has obtained a draft opinion stating that the majority of judges will vote to overthrow Roe.
The president said it was unclear whether the draft reflected the court’s final decision. Opinions may change during the drafting process.
“Women’s choice is fundamental, Roe has been the law of this country for almost 50 years, and I believe that basic fairness and the stability of our law require it not to be overturned. “We are,” Biden said.
Mr Biden said his administration would create a gender policy council, providing options when a ruling was issued.
He added that lawmakers and voters need to act to secure the right to abortion.
“It will be up to voters to elect a pro-choice official in November this year,” Biden said. “At the federal level, we need more senators in favor and a majority in favor in the House of Representatives to adopt a bill that codifies Roe.
