Joe Biden vows to “codify” Roe v Wade on 48th anniversary of abortion ruling
The Christian Post reports that while more than sixty-two million lives have been lost to abortion since the 1973 Roe v Wade decision, the Biden administration announced on Friday, the judgment’s 48th anniversary, that it would back abortion with a codified federal law in the event the U.S. Supreme Court overturns the ruling.
“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to codifying Roe v Wade and appointing judges that respect foundational precedents like Roe,” the White House said in a statement Friday, the day after National Right to Life Committee said in its annual report that the total number of abortions since 1973 had exceeded sixty-two million.
“In the past four years, reproductive health, including the right to choose, has been under relentless and extreme attack,” added Biden in the White House statement. “We are deeply committed to making sure everyone has access to care — including reproductive health care — regardless of income, race, zip code, health insurance status, or immigration status.”
March for Life President Jeanne Mancini also responded. “Abortion isn’t healthcare,” she tweeted. “It is heartbreaking but not surprising that on the day we commemorate the loss of 60+ million Americans to abortion the new administration is already aggressively leaning into abortion extremism.”
