Biden Says If SCOTUS Overturns Roe v. Wade He’ll Make Abortion ‘Law Of The Land’
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden once said that he was a “pro-life Democrat,” but that seems to have been tossed out the window as he clearly stated during a town hall event on Monday evening that he would make abortion the “law of the land” if the Supreme Court managed to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Of course, that all hinges on whether or not he wins in November too.
Biden’s comment came as the answer to a question about “the survival of reproductive rights” if Judge Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the bench. Because the ghoulish left will do whatever it takes to preserve the right to murder children.
“Cassidy Brown said having birth control and reproductive health care enabled her to start a career before having a family,” an Associated Press noted of the exchange. “She asked Biden about his plan if President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett overturned women’s reproductive rights.”
Biden responded that he would make Roe v. Wade, the landmark case that made obtaining an abortion a Constitutional right, the “law of the land.”
“Number one, we don’t know exactly what [Barrett] will do, although the expectation is that she may very well move to overrule Roe, and what the only thing–the only responsible response to that would be to pass legislation making Roe the law of the land,” Biden said. “That’s what I would do.”
What’s not exactly clear here is how Biden would actually do this if he were president. If the controversial decision were overturned, that would essentially be a declaration that abortion is not a Constitutional right, thus it would be night to impossible to pass any sort of law that would make the practice legal without getting the federal government wrapped up in endless litigation.
