The Political Impact of the Roe v. Wade Decision
Updated on

President Joe Biden condemned the Supreme Court’s ruling overturning the landmark Roe v. Wade ruling that protected abortion rights nationwide, saying the justices stripped Americans of a fundamental right in place for half a century. 

The president said his administration would do what it could to ensure that even in states that outlaw abortion, women retain access to the procedure. But he said voters would have to elect more Democrats to Congress in order to enact the protections of Roe into US law.
