Biden looking for 'solutions' after Supreme Court's abortion ruling as protests continue

Joe Biden continues to search for “solutions” following the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the right to abortion access in a historic decision that divided opinion.

President Trump has stated that his administration will investigate how states enforce the bans.

Some White House officials already indicated plans to fight against states that try to ban the use of a pill for medical abortions.

“The Supreme Court made some terrible decisions,” said Mr Biden on Saturday.

“The states have implemented the decision. My administration will focus on how they administer the law and whether they are in violation of other laws.

Friday ‘s court ruling overturned the constitutional right to an abortion that existed for nearly 50 years after a legal case called Roe v Wade.

Although Mr Biden clearly disagreed with the “extreme” choice of his spokesperson stated that he still respects the Supreme Court and does not see the need to increase its membership.
