Joe Biden, with all of his infinite wisdom (insert sarcasm), has outdone himself this time. During a mini press conference before boarding a flight, Biden called the SCOTUS’s plat to overturn Roe V Wade “radical decision”. The deranged commander then said that mainstream Jesus approves of abortions.
“If this decision holds, it’s really quite a radical decision,” Biden told reporters at Andrews Air Force Base.
Elsewhere in his comments, Biden indicated he could support codifying Roe in law.
“Roe says what all basic, mainstream religions have historically concluded, that right, the existence of a human life and being is a question,” Biden said. “Is it at the moment of conception? Is it six months? Is it six weeks? Is it ‘quickening’ like Aquinas argued?”
“So I mean, the idea that we’re going to make a judgment that is going to say that no one can make the judgment to choose to abort a child, based on a decision by the Supreme Court, I think goes way overboard,” added Biden.
REPORTER: Should the Senate do away with the filibuster to codify Roe?
BIDEN: I’m not prepared to make those judgments now, but, you know, I think the codification of Roe makes a lot of sense.pic.twitter.com/2Jtn0LOPyI
The comments came after a draft by Justice Samuel Alito overturning Roe was obtained and published by Politico on Monday night.
“The Constitution does not prohibit the citizens of each State from regulating or prohibiting abortion. Roe and Casey arrogated that authority. We now overrule those decisions and return that authority to the people and their elected representatives,” the conclusion of the decision reads.
Justice Samuel Alito, as well as four other Republican-appointed justices — Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett — voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, sources told Politico.
Democrat-appointed Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan disagreed and were working on dissents, according to the sources.
It wasn’t clear how Chief Justice John Roberts, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, would vote. The SCOTUS will move to vote this summer.
