Biden stresses that the right to abortion is “fundamental” in the face of the imminent Supreme Court ruling

MADRID, May 3. (EUROPE PRESS) –

The president of the United States, Joe Biden, has stressed this Tuesday that the right to voluntary interruption of pregnancy is “fundamental” and has questioned whether the Supreme Court can annul the ruling on which it is based, for the sake of both “justice basic” and legal “stability”.

A draft of the ruling, published on Monday by the Politico news portal, anticipates that conservative positions will prevail in the Supreme Court to annul the historic ‘Roe versus Wade’ ruling, which recognized in 1973 the right of women to abortion without restrictions during the first trimester of pregnancy.

Waiting to know “if this draft is authentic”, Biden has gone ahead to make clear again his defense of the current jurisprudence, which connects with the Fourteenth Amendment on personal freedom and the non-interference of the Administration in personal decisions.

“I believe that a woman’s right to choose is fundamental,” said the president, under whose guidelines the current Administration had already been preparing “options” with which to stop what, in his opinion, is a “continuous attack” by sectors conservatives. Several Republican-controlled states have already promoted more restrictive laws.

“We will be ready when the sentence is passed” in the Supreme Court, Biden has advanced, in favor of the fact that, if the High Court overturns the previous sentence, it is the congressmen who protect the rights of women.

Thus, and with the parliamentary elections in November already on the horizon, he believes that it is time for there to be a majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives in favor of approving a law that gives definitive legal endorsement to the ruling ‘Roe versus Wade’.

Biden has thus joined a series of criticisms that other Democratic leaders had already expressed in the last few hours and that, on the street, has also motivated protests at the Supreme Court headquarters.
