Abortion: It’s tragic error, Biden slams Supreme Court ruling

President Joe Biden Friday slammed the US Supreme Court for ending the right to abortion, accusing it of putting women’s lives at risk in the name of an “extreme ideology.”

“The court has done what it has never done before, expressly take away a constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many Americans,” Biden said.

“It’s a realization of an extreme ideology and a tragic error by the Supreme Court in my view.”

The apex court on Friday ended the right to abortion in a ruling that shreds half a century of constitutional protections on one of the most divisive and bitterly fought issues in American political life.

The conservative-dominated court overturned the landmark 1973 “Roe v Wade” decision that enshrined a woman’s right to an abortion, saying that individual states can now permit or restrict the procedure themselves.

“The Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; and the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives,” the court said.
