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.
“We do not know whether this draft is genuine, or whether it reflects the final decision of the Court,” wrote Biden in his statement, released on Tuesday morning.
Despite the disclaimer, the rest of the statement reads as a lobbying effort meant to try to persuade the Supreme Court to keep Roe, the Supreme Court ruling which ushered in an era of abortion on demand and has killed 63 million babies.
“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,” wrote Biden.
Biden wrote that the administration said 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,” Biden wrote.
“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,” Biden concluded.

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.
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.”
Chief Justice John 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.
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.
