Biden Threatens States Enforcing ‘Painful and Devastating’ Supreme Court Decision on Abortion

President Joe Biden on Saturday threatened states that are enforcing the Supreme Court’s decision that abortion is not a guaranteed right under the Constitution. Watch:

“Yesterday, I spoke about the Supreme Court’s shocking decision striking down Roe v. Wade,” Biden said. “We’ve had a lot of discussion about that in our whole household.”

“Jill and I know how painful and devastating a decision is for so many Americans — and I mean so many Americans,” the president continued.

“The decision is implemented by states,” Biden added. “My administration is going to focus on how they administer it and whether or not they violate other laws, like deciding to not allow people across state lines to get public health services. And we’re going to take actions to protect women’s rights and reproductive health.”

The threat is similar to the Biden administration’s reaction to states passing election integrity laws after the 2020 election. The Department of Justice sued Arizona over its election law, only to be defeated in the Supreme Court. The DOJ also sued Georgia over its election laws, which is a case that is widely considered to be doomed.

President Joe Biden also signed the sweeping gun control package into law, before telling the press he’s got to catch a ‘helicopter’ to get back to his weekend getaway in Delaware.

“I have a helicopter waiting for me… I think the Supreme Court has made some terrible decisions,” Biden said before walking away.

In an ominous sign, the Department of Justice issued a statement that it strongly disagrees with the Supreme Court’s ruling and will work to undermine state laws that criminalize abortion provision.

“Today, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey and held that the right to abortion is no longer protected by the Constitution,” Attorney General Merrick Garland stated.

“The Justice Department strongly disagrees with the Court’s decision,” the statement went on. “This decision deals a devastating blow to reproductive freedom in the United States. It will have an immediate and irreversible impact on the lives of people across the country. And it will be greatly disproportionate in its effect – with the greatest burdens felt by people of color and those of limited financial means.”

“The Justice Department will work tirelessly to protect and advance reproductive freedom,” Garland added.

The Biden Department of Justice is undoubtedly one of the most politicized in U.S. history. Attorney General Merrick Garland is treading dangerously close to official misconduct, an impeachable offense that could become actionable under a Republican-led Senate.

No less than five Attorneys General have been threatened or charged with impeachment in the last 100 years: Harry M. Daugherty under the Harding/Coolidge administrations; Griffin Bell under the Carter administration; Alberto Gonzales under the Bush administration; Eric Holder under the Obama administration; and William Barr under the Trump administration.
