President Biden flat out said that he is not going to the people decide when it comes to privacy rights and other controversial issues like abortion or birth control.
Before boarding Air Force One Biden spoke with the press.
A reporter asked if “changes need to be made to the Court in light of this, if this decision holds?”
“We have to choose — I mean, look, one of the reasons why I voted against a number of the members of the Court: They refuse to acknowledge that there’s a 9th Amendment. They refuse to acknowledge there’s a right to privacy,” Biden said.
Wait a second…a right to privacy? What about my right to privacy to get or not get a vaccine?
The president continued by adding, “I mean, there are so many fundamental rights that are affected by that. And I’m not allo- — I’m not prepared to leave that to the whims and the — and the — of the public at the moment in local areas.”
That’s about as unconstitutional as you can get.
When asked if the Senate should dump the filibuster if the ruling holds Biden balked.
“I’m not — I’m not prepared to make those judgments now about — but, you know, I think the codification of Roe makes a lot of sense,” he said.
The left is now doing everything they can to undermine the court.
A majority of Supreme Court justices were appointed by presidents who initially lost the popular vote. The court is now poised to overturn Roe v Wade, despite Americans supporting it by a roughly 2-to-1 margin.
This Court is putting a stake through the heart of our democracy.

Isn’t it funny how quickly Democrats care about privacy and personal choice when one of their policies might get struck down?
This entire leak appears to be designed by the Democrats to tear down the legitimacy of the Supreme Court because they can’t control it.
“The US Supreme Court’s legitimacy has been deeply pierced, and it may never recover its stature in the eyes of America.”
A very good read by the one and only @JoanBiskupic https://t.co/MMUFNV8ivt

It wasn’t a leak.
Schumer and Pelosi had enough time to draft a memo, Bernie Sanders and AOC basically say the exact same thing, verbatim, and Hillary, well, she’s just hoping somebody notices her incessant braying.
The whole thing is coordinated. pic.twitter.com/VaffSxKBF2

Last night’s stunning breach was an attack on the independence of the Supreme Court. By every indication, this was yet another escalation in the radical left’s ongoing campaign to bully and intimidate federal judges and substitute mob rule for the rule of law. pic.twitter.com/wvigWvPqm7
