On Tuesday morning, President Joe Biden issued a statement outlining his administration’s response to the report that the United States Supreme Court has allegedly voted to overturn Roe v. Wade via its opinion in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case that is scheduled to be announced in June. Biden’s statement didn’t remark on the unprecedented and controversial nature of the draft leaking in the first place.

Late Monday evening, The Daily Wire reported that SCOTUS has voted to strike down the controversial Roe v. Wade decision, according to an initial draft of the majority opinion obtained by Politico.


In response, Biden cautioned the pro-abortion supporters, “We do not know whether this draft is genuine, or whether it reflects the final decision of the Court.”

“With that critical caveat, I want to be clear on three points about the cases before the Supreme Court,” he added.

The president, who has voiced his support for upholding Roe, issued a three-point plan for protecting the so-called right to abortion in America.

“First, my administration argued strongly before the Court in defense of Roe v. Wade. We said that Roe is based on ‘a long line of precedent recognizing ‘the Fourteenth Amendment’s concept of personal liberty’… against government interference with intensely personal decisions,” Biden said in his statement. “I believe that a woman’s right to choose is fundamental, Roe has been the law of the land for almost fifty years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned.”

He also stated that he called upon the White House Gender Policy Counsel to “prepare options” if the purported ruling actually comes down in June.

“Second, shortly after the enactment of Texas law SB 8 and other laws restricting women’s reproductive rights, I directed my Gender Policy Council and White House Counsel’s Office to prepare options for an Administration response to the continued attack on abortion and reproductive rights, under a variety of possible outcomes in the cases pending before the Supreme Court. We will be ready when any ruling is issued,” he stated.
