(TheRedAlertNews.com) – HAPPENING NOW: Just moments ago, while out of the country, perhaps reacting to pro-abortion critics within the Democratic Party who are upset that he has not been more forceful in his response to the United States Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade and ruling there is no right to an abortion contained within the United States Constitution, President Joe Biden is now demanding that Congress throw out the Senate filibuster rule and pass legislation legalizing abortion.
If the Senate filibuster rule was thrown out to legalize abortion, the legislation could pass with 51 votes instead of 60.
As National Review notes:
“Speaking from the NATO summit in Madrid on Thursday, President Joe Biden condemned the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and called for an exception to the Senate filibuster to codify the federal right to abortion.
“‘We have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that, is to make sure that Congress votes to do that,’ Biden said in response to a question from a Wall Street Journal reporter. He called the Supreme Court’s ruling ‘outrageous’ and insisted that an exception to the filibuster is warranted to ensure the passage of legislation protecting unrestricted abortion access.” [emphasis added]
Biden then expanded his criticism of the court’s ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, saying the decision threatens a range of privacy issues.
“‘I think it’s a serious, serious problem that the court has thrust upon the United States, not just in terms of the right to choose, but in terms of the right of who you can marry, and a whole range of issues related to privacy,’ the president said, adding that he will do ‘everything’ he can to codify the federal right to abortion through Congress.” [emphasis added]
