“Today’s decision, which is the biggest WIN for LIFE in a generation, along with other decisions that have been announced recently, were only made possible because I delivered on everything as promised, including nominating and getting three highly respected and strong Constitutionalists confirmed to the United States Supreme Court. It was my great honor to do so!”
“I did not cave to the Radical Left Democrats, their partners in the Fake News Media, or the RINOs who are likewise the true, but silent, enemy of the people,” he continued. “These major victories prove that even the Radical Left is doing everything in their power to destroy our Country, your Rights are being protected, the Country is being defended, and there is still hope and time to Save America!”
“I will never stop fighting for the Great People of our Nation!”
Earlier, President Joe Biden blamed Donald Trump for the radical Democrats’ defeat at the Supreme Court.
“Today is a — it’s not hyperbole,” he began. “It suggests a very solemn moment. Today, the Supreme Court of the United States expressly took away a Constitutional right from the American people that it had already recognized. They didn’t limit it. They simply took it away,” he claimed.
“That’s never been done to a right so important to so many Americans,” he continued. “But they did it. It’s a sad day for the court and for the country. Fifty years ago, Roe v. Wade was decided and has been the law of the land since then. This landmark case protected women’s right to choose, her right to make intensely personal decisions with their doctor free from… the interference of politics,” he shamelessly added.
“It reaffirmed basic principles of equality that women have the power to control their own destiny,” he added. “And it reinforced a fundamental right of privacy, the right of each of us to choose how to live our lives.”
“Now with Roe gone, let’s be very clear,” Biden went on. “The health and life of women in this nation are now at risk.”
“As chairman and ranking member of the Senate judiciary committee and as vice president,” he continued. “Now, as President of the United States, I’ve studied this case carefully. I’ve overseen more Supreme Court confirmations than anyone today where this case was always discussed.”
“I believe Roe V. Wade was the correct decision as a matter of constitutional law and application of the fundamental right to privacy and liberty and matters of family and personal autonomy,” he continued. “It was a decision on a complex matter that drew a careful balance between a woman’s right to choose earlier in her pregnancy and the state’s ability to regulate later in her pregnancy. A decision with broad national consensus that most Americans of faith and backgrounds found acceptable that had been the law of the land for most of the lifetime of Americans today.”
“And it was a constitutional principle upheld by justices appointed by Democrat and Republican presidents alike,” Biden added. “Roe V. Wade was a seven to two decision written by justice appointed by a Republican president, Richard Nixon in the five decades. It followed Roe V. Wade justice is appointed by Republican presidents from Eisenhower, Nixon, Reagan, and George W. Bush were among the justices who voted to uphold the principles set forth in Roe V. Wade.”
“It was three justices named by one president — Donald Trump — were the core of today’s decision to upend the scales of justice and eliminate a fundamental right for women in this country,” he added.
Donald Trump, for his part, praised the Supreme Court for the decision.
“This is following the Constitution, and giving rights back when they should have been given long ago,” Trump told Fox News.
“This brings everything back to the states where it has always belonged,” Trump said.
The Supreme Court agreed with Trump in a 6-3 decision, thanks in part to the three justices that he put on the court.
