‘A crime’ Senate didn’t codify Roe v Wade, Congressman says
Deer vs Wade was overturned by the US Supreme Court. Joe Biden addressed the nation hours after the verdict, urging Americans to choose the lawmaker who will codify Deer vs Wade into the law and call for peaceful protests. He said it was a “sad day” for the country and the court, which took an unprecedented step to strip Americans of their rights.
The decision sparked protests and condemnations across the country. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez joined protesters outside the Supreme Court shortly after the decision was announced.
The end of roe came up by the Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
The statement, which was supported by all of the court’s conservative judges, drew widespread outrage, not least since the three conservatives appointed by Donald Trump claimed at their confirmation hearings that they would recognize it roe as a precedent rather than overturning it.
As Democrats rush to protect reproductive rights in their states, some Republican senators are instead focusing on the circumstances leak and have called for people who disclose Supreme Court decisions before they are publicly released to face 10 years in prison and face a $10,000 fine.

Joyce Beatty, Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, reacts to the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v Wade
Congressional Black Caucus Chair Joyce Beatty has issued a statement responding to the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v Wade. Her statement appears below:
“Time has turned back again. The decision of the far-right Supreme Court majority, Roe v. Repealing Wade, the country’s law that gave a woman the right to vote for 49 years, will have far-reaching and painful consequences. Furthermore, amid a crisis in Black maternal mortality, restricting access to abortion care will disproportionately endanger the lives of Black Americans.”
“Let me be very clear: Government-ordered pregnancy is not life-threatening, it is for surveillance of women’s bodies. In response to this unacceptable decision, I, along with members of the Congressional Black Caucus, are authoring a letter to President Biden urging him to swiftly declare this unprecedented assault on abortion rights and public health access a national emergency that decrees it is . We have seen what life was like before Roe v. Wade was, and America can’t afford to go back.”
