Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden during a town hall on Monday said that he would pass legislation making Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that established a nationwide right to abortion, “the law of the land.”
During the NBC town hall in Miami, Florida, Cassidy Brown said having birth control and reproductive health care enabled her to start a career before having a family. She asked Biden about his plan if President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett overturned women’s reproductive rights.
“Number 1, we don’t know exactly what she would do. Although, the expectation is that she may very well overrule Roe,” Biden replied during the town hall. “The only response to that would be to pass legislation making Roe a law of the land. That’s what I would do.”
You have to give Joe Biden mad props so saying this so bluntly because you know this statement will show up in anti-abortion advertisements all over the country.
However, the anti-abortionists are really only a small segment of the population.
The last poll I saw said that 61% of Americans support a woman’s right to choose.
So if people want to protect that freedom they clearly need to show up and vote for Joe Biden.
