Overthrow Roe v. Wade a “shot” to all who believe in freedom

President Barack Obama reacted on Tuesday to a leaked Supreme Court draft opinion suggesting it would decide to overturn Roe v. Wade.

The president followed the argument made by many pro-abortion activists in a 719-word statement released to reporters, warning that Americans would face the loss of their personal rights to privacy if Roe vs. Wade was overthrown.

“[W]What Roe recognized is that the freedom enshrined in the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution compels us all to enjoy a sphere of our lives that is free from state interference,” a- he wrote, warning that the federal government could ultimately meddle in “Personal decisions involving who we sleep with, who we marry, whether or not to use contraception and whether or not to have children.”

Judge Samuel Alito’s draft opinion responds to this false argument by stating that the decision in deer was different – because abortion involves the choice to take a human life.

Obama’s statement included a vociferous defense of the Supreme Court’s leftist view that it had no right to strike down abortion rights.

The former president said the draft advice removed the “constitutionally recognized interest” of “people” who wanted to make decisions about whether or not to have an abortion.

“The consequences of this decision would be a blow not only to women, but to all of us who believe that in a free society there are limits to what the government can encroach on our personal lives,” he said. he writes.

Obama expressed concern that the poor would face the brunt of any future Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

“Illegal abortions,” he warned, “would inevitably pose serious risks to their health, their future ability to have children, and sometimes their lives.”

Obama warned supporters of Roe vs. Wade increasingly happy with court decisions on abortion, reminding them of the people who would suffer.

“[S]some of those who support deer may feel helpless and instinctively return to their work, family or daily tasks – thinking that because this outcome was perhaps predictable, there is nothing we can do,” he said.

The former president argued that women deserve “the dignity and freedom to make a decision that is right for their body and their circumstances.”

“You could be one of those people,” he said. “Or you may know some of them by name.”

He urged Americans to join pro-abortion activists in protesting and working in local politics to stop the momentum of the pro-life movement.

“[I]Ultimately, if we want judges who will protect all, not just some, of our rights, then we must elect officials who are committed to doing the same,” he wrote.
