In an interview on abortion today after shocking news of a leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision overturning Roe, Joe Biden made some odd and strange statements about religion and whether people should have the right to vote on abortion.

Biden told reporters he doesn’t want Americans to have the right to vote on whether babies should be killed in abortions, saying “I’m not prepared to leave” abortion “to the whims of the public at the moment.”

“The idea that we’re gonna make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child based on a decision by the Supreme Court I think goes way overboard,” Biden added — even though overturning Roe just sends abortion back to the states.

Biden also tried to make it look like Christianity doesn’t really condemn abortion.

“Roe says what all basic, mainstream religions have historically concluded, that the existence of a human life and being is a question: Is it at the moment of conception? Is it six months? Is it six weeks?…The idea…we’re going to make a judgment…goes way overboard.”

In Biden’s world, the Supreme Court or Congress should have the final say about abortion rather than the people via their statewide elected officials.

“Letting states and localities make decisions” about abortion laws “would be a fundamental shift in what we’ve done,” he said.

As LifeNews reported, in a monumental decision that could finally end an era of abortion on demand and 63 million babies killed in abortions, the Supreme Court has reportedly issued a decision overturning Roe v. Wade. This is according to a release of a draft of the decision.

“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the draft opinion of the court dated February 10.

Chief Justice John Roberts has issued a statement confirming the leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision overturning Roe is genuine and he says the nation’s highest court will launch an internal investigation about the leak.

There was speculation previously that Roberts was not writing the case and concern that he could try to influence the other justices to oppose overturning Roe. Since he confirmed the draft is genuine, the former appears true.

According to Politico the decision is not final and could change but the leaked draft of the opinion has four justices — Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — joined Alito while three — Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan — dissented.

“We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled,” the opinion reportedly continued. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Roberts has yet to cast his vote and it is unknown which side he will vote with, Politico reported.

Leading pro-life groups today are celebrating the possible end of Roe v. Wade after a leaked first draft of a Supreme Court opinion overturning Roe surfaced last night.

Joe Biden has released a statement in response to the draft of a potential Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade and the statement makes it appear Biden believes the nation’s highest court is on the verge of overturning Roe.

Leading pro-life advocates and pro-life Republican senators condemned the leak of a draft of a decision to end Roe v. Wade as an attempt by leftists to intimate the Supreme Court into keeping the radical pro-abortion decision in place.

Polling data shows a majority of Americans are pro-life and want all or most abortions made illegal.

Since 1973, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds, perhaps thousands, of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions. If Roe is overturned, researchers predict more than half of states would strongly restrict or ban abortions and hundreds of thousands of unborn babies’ lives would be saved from abortion every year.

If Roe is overturned, researchers predict as many as 26 states would ban abortionssaving hundreds of thousands of unborn babies’ lives.
