Yesterday, President Biden said this:
Biden vowed, if more Democrats are elected to Congress on November 8, he would push for legislation that will codify abortion rights into law.
‘Congressional Republicans are doubling down on their extreme positions,’ the president said.
He went on to say:
‘The first bill that I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade. And when Congress passes it, I’ll sign it in January — 50 years after Roe was first decided as the law of the land. Together we’ll restore the right to choose for every woman in every state in America.’
And he ended his remarks with a call for people to vote.
‘You care about the right to choose then you gotta vote. That’s why these midterm elections are so critical,’ he said.
‘So vote, you gotta get out the vote. We can do this if we vote, folks.’
He’s wrong. The Supreme Court sent the issue back to the states. It will be settled in every state legislature not the U.S. Congress. Besides, no so called “codify” law will get 60 votes in the U.S. Senate.
