Biden Says Trump, Conservatives Are Pushing ‘Extremism’ In Video Marking 2nd Anniversary Of Roe Reversal

 As pro-life conservatives and Republicans celebrate the second anniversary of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade, President Joe Biden released a video urging Democrats to keep him in the White House for a second term to “fight like hell” against “extremism” and bring back complete abortion protections in all 50 states.

In a 45-second spot posted by the president’s account on YouTube on Sunday, Biden quotes his opponent Donald Trump’s support for the overturning of Roe. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has boasted that he “was able to kill Roe v. Wade.”

“Two years ago, the Supreme Court justices that Trump handpicked helped overturn Roe v. Wade,” Biden said. “Decades of progress shattered just because the last guy got four years in the White House. We know what will happen if he gets another four.”

The president then blasted Trump’s supporters as the video showed a clip of the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot. Biden claimed that Republicans will push to ban abortion “nationwide” before they target “IVF and birth control next.”

“We’re up against extremism,” Biden continued. “Send me back to the White House and I’ll fight like hell to restore Roe v. Wade and protect American freedom.

In a 6-3 decision on June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned the high court’s 1973 decision that paved the way for the U.S. to become one of the most radical pro-abortion countries in the world. The 2022 Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling was made possible by three Trump-appointed conservative justices — Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney-Barrett — joining Justices John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito.

While Chief Justice Roberts argued that the Dobbs decision did not need to go as far as overturning Roe, Alito wrote in the majority opinion that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start.”

“Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division,” Alito added. “It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”

Biden and the Democratic Party launched a full-out abortion blitz immediately following the Dobbs decision, which the party says helped mobilize its base for the 2022 midterms, where Democrats across the country outperformed expectations. The pro-abortion side has won at the ballot box every time in the months and years after Roe’s reversal, even in red states such as Kansas, Kentucky, and Ohio.

Earlier this year, Trump came out against Arizona’s near-total abortion ban and questioned Florida’s six-week abortion limitations.


“So for 52 years, people have been wanting to end Roe v. Wade to get it back to the states. We did that. It was an incredible achievement,” Trump said in April. “And now the states have it, and the states are putting out what they want. It’s the will of the people. So Florida is probably going to change; Arizona is definitely going to change. Everybody wants that to happen.”

Many Republicans also expressed their support for IVF after the Alabama Supreme Court ruled in February that frozen embryos should be recognized and protected as unborn children. Just weeks later, with support from Trump, Alabama Republican Governor Kay Ivey signed a bill into law that protected IVF providers following the state Supreme Court’s decision.
