(PresidentialWire.com)- During a meeting with pro-abortion Governors last week, President Biden claimed without evidence that Republicans would pass a nationwide abortion ban if they gained control of Congress in January.
This is ridiculous on its face and another clear indication that not only has Joe Biden not changed when it comes to over-the-top rhetoric, but he also did not read the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Dobbs case.
The Supreme Court expressly sent abortion back to the states.
A federal ban on abortion, just like a federal law allowing abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, would not be in line with the Court’s ruling.
But Joe Biden is famous for making unfounded pronouncements that are completely detached from reality.
The president also said Congress would ultimately pass the so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act” that would impose on all fifty states abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. He declared that the Senate filibuster “should not stand in the way of us being able to do that.”
Problem is, Biden said, there aren’t enough Democrats in the Senate to do this. So Biden wants voters to elect at least two more Democrat Senators in November and increase the Democrat majority in the House.
Biden told the Democrat governors that either the country elects more Democrats “who will codify Roe” or a Republican majority will “ban abortions nationwide. Nationwide.”
This is a strawman argument. But Joe Biden is an expert at arguing against non-existent foes.
Again, the Supreme Court sent abortion back to the individual states. The Dobbs ruling did not say abortion law – either for or against — is up to the US Congress, but the states.
These remarks from Joe Biden were fearmongering, nothing more.
Sadly, there are plenty of Americans who are dumb enough to believe him.
