Joe Biden would consider nominating former President Barack Obama to the U.S. Supreme Court if he is willing to become a judge, the Democrat presidential front-runner said last week in Iowa.
The vice president under Obama, Biden recently was asked if he would consider nominating the former president to the Supreme Court, if elected.
“If he’d take it, yes,” Biden replied, according to Wall Street Journal reporter Ken Thomas.
Biden is the polling at the top among Democratic presidential candidates, but his abortion politics are extreme and out of touch with most Americans. Once a moderate, he recently flip-flopped on the issue, and now supports forcing taxpayers to pay for elective abortions.
His willingness to nominate Obama is further evidence of the pro-abortion extremism that could come out of a Biden presidency.
Obama would be a perfect pro-abortion judge for the abortion industry – and a “constitutional nightmare” for Americans, PJ Media’s Matt Margolis responded.
As Margolis pointed out:
Obama often talks about him being a constitutional law professor, but, as president, he repeatedly exceeded his constitutional authority. There are many examples of Obama flouting the Constitution. Most involve his inclination to bypass Congress to legislate via executive action. But the most significant example of Obama’s lack of constitutional aptitude is how he was repeatedly rebuked by the Supreme Court.

For example, the Obama administration filed an amicus brief supporting a Massachusetts buffer zone law that restricted pro-life advocates’ free speech outside of abortion facilities. The Supreme Court unanimously struck down the law in McCullen v. Coakley.
The Obama administration also went after religious employers like the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic charity that has been fighting for years for its religious freedom against Obamacare.
It is not hard to imagine how Obama would rule as a judge on the highest court in the land.
The make-up of the U.S. Supreme Court is one of the most critical issues in the upcoming presidential election. Currently, even moderate abortion restrictions, such as bans on brutal dismemberment abortions and discriminatory abortions that target unborn babies with disabilities, are being struck down in federal courts. Only the Supreme Court can modify or overturn Roe v. Wade and allow states to protect unborn babies once again.
The Supreme Court decision made America one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. It prohibits states from protecting unborn babies prior to viability.
A number of abortion cases are making their way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, any one of which could affect the future of abortion and unborn babies’ lives for decades.
President Donald Trump appointed two conservative justices to the high court, Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh. The next four years could see more open seats, possibly including pro-abortion Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who is 86.
