President Biden isn’t happy that states are making decisions about abortion restrictions following the Supreme Court’s decision striking down Roe v. Wade.
During a Women’s Equality Day event at the White House on Friday, the president slammed Republican-led states working to ban nearly all abortions, saying the restrictions were “beyond the pale.”
“You’re going to hear women roar on this issue, and it’s going to be consequential,” he said.KANSAS ABORTION CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT REJECTED BY VOTERS
At the moment, Democrats don’t have a large enough majority to do anything about abortion laws. Democrats would need 10 Republican votes to overcome a filibuster and get any kind of bill through the evenly divided Senate. But only two Republicans have said they would support such a measure and there aren’t enough votes to overcome a filibuster.
Biden hammered home what abortion rights supporters need to do if they want to stop red states from passing more restrictions.
“The only way it’s going to happen [is] if the American people make it happen in November,” Biden said.
