President Biden has already taken up the gautlet….
Will he be able to awaken and rally voters ambivalent about his Presidency up to this point?
(Republicans get abortions also)
Will he and others be able send a message to a right leaning group of 5 justices that maybe intent on returning America back to the 1950’s way of things?
As the nation erupted over news that the Supreme Court is poised to strike down half a century of abortion rights, President Joe Biden returned to a playbook he crafted 35 years ago.
Pulling from his long career overseeing court confirmation fights — and reflecting his long-standing reluctance to talk specifically about abortion — Biden said on Tuesday that the issue confronting the public now was not just a future without Roe v. Wade. As he prepared to board Air Force One, the president foreshadowed the message he will relay in the weeks and months ahead: If the high court’s draft opinion remains unchanged, it will threaten a larger collection of rights long taken for granted by the public, from contraception to marriage.
“It’s the main reason why I worked so hard to keep Robert Bork off the court,” Biden said of his work to defeat President Ronald Reagan’s Supreme Court nominee in 1987. “It concerns me a great deal that we’re going to, after 50 years, decide a woman does not have a right to choose.”…
Democrats rushed to warn voters that their right to abortion was on the ballot come November. Biden echoed that message but strategically attempted to expand on it.
“It would mean that every other decision relating to the notion of privacy is thrown into question,” the president said. “If what is written is what remains, it goes far beyond the concern of whether or not there is the right to choose. It goes to other basic rights … who you marry, whether or not you decide to conceive a child or not, whether or not you can have an abortion, a range of other decisions.”
The White House views the expected unraveling of Roe as a galvanizing moment for Democratic voters….
“Not yet 24 hours after the publication of a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn constitutional protections of abortion rights, Democrats at every level across the country were capitalizing on a potentially seismic shift in the political landscape that could upend what was to be a bloodbath of a midterm election for an otherwise disillusioned party,” NBC News reports.
“Attacks on Republican candidates are underway, as are a flurry of pleas for donations. Ads defending abortion rights are rapidly populating social media. The Democratic National Committee launched a text messaging campaign to move people to the streets, while some of the most powerful Democratic groups in the nation were huddling to reshape their messaging.”
Democrats will now push on Birth Control….
Sens. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) and Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), who chair the health and finance panels respectively, said they were opening an investigation into complaints that health insurers are denying patients’ requests for birth control and forcing them to pay out of pocket.
“We are hearing from patients who are being asked to jump through ridiculous, crazy, unnecessary steps to get the birth control that works for them,” Murray said in an interview, stressing that access to birth control is a key pillar of reproductive health. “Those who want to take away your right to get an abortion are not going to stop there. … And we need to stand up and fight back with everything we’ve got.”…
