Joe Biden warned of a “revolution” and promised to take executive action to promote the killing of unborn babies in abortions if the US Supreme Court overthrows Roe v. Wade this summer.
Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Biden said his administration is working on ways to expand abortions in response to the likely ruling, The Hill reports.
“We think there are some executive orders I could use. That’s what we’re looking at now,” Biden told Kimmel.
He then warned that if Roe goes and states start protecting unborn babies from abortion, abortion activists will revolt.
“If the decision comes as it is and these states put the restrictions on what they’re talking about, it’s going to trigger a mini-revolution, and they’re going to vote many of these people out of office,” Biden said.
Abortion activists have already rioted in recent weeks, setting fire to three pro-life organizations and destroying dozens of others. On Wednesday, police arrested a man armed with a gun near Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s home after the man allegedly threatened to kill the judge. Kavanaugh is among the majority expected to overthrow Roe through the Mississippi Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health case.
A final ruling is expected sometime later this month. The Biden administration has been meeting with abortion activists and state pro-abortion leaders to figure out ways to stop America from killing unborn babies in abortions.
Here’s more from the report:
Biden did not elaborate on which executive orders he is considering. He also urged voters to vote Republicans out of office in November so Democrats could pass federal legislation codifying Roe v. Wade. †
White House officials have met with state officials, abortion rights advocates, and other stakeholders to understand the laws in several states.
The White House has said it plans to take action in response to the ruling but has provided little guidance on what it will look like. Government officials are not expected to make plans until after the verdict is made sometime later this month, before the end of the current Supreme Court term.
Earlier this week, a group of Senate Democrats sent Biden a letter recommending ways to expand abortions through executive order, including providing taxpayer-funded vouchers and other resources for women to travel for abortions and creating a new “reproductive health ombudsman” in the Department of Health and Human Services.
Since 1973, Roe v. Wade has forced states to legalize abortions until they were viable and to allow abortions up to birth. As a result, more than 63 million unborn babies and hundreds of mothers have died in supposedly “safe, legal” abortions.
Estimates vary, but experts predict that as many as 26 states will protect unborn babies from abortion if the Supreme Court overthrows Roe. Their laws would save the lives of hundreds of thousands of unborn babies.
Polls consistently show that most Americans support strong legal protections for unborn babies — more than Roe allows. A new poll by Rasmussen shows that more Americans want Roe v. Wade quashed (48 percent) than the ruling remains in effect (45 percent). LifeNews has featured 11 recent polls here.
