In a recent publication, the highly respected Wall Street Journal has widely urged Americans to ignore various claims made by President Joe Biden regarding “rights” that may be in jeopardy should Roe v. Wade be overturned.
Alongside other Democrats, the president has been widely insinuating or outright stating that the leaked draft represents an attack on women, without demonstrating extensive concern regarding the violation of Supreme Court trust that produced the leak in the first place.
According to the WSJ, the Biden administration is following a highly simplistic narrative, which starts with “[banning] abortion” and allegedly followed by “a contraception ban,” “a same-sex marriage ban,” and “an interracial marriage ban.”
“That’s the parade of horribles that Democrats and the media are trying to sell Americans,” the WSJ noted, adding that all of the absurd accusations against conservatives ensued “after the leak of a draft Supreme Court opinion that would repeal a constitutional right to abortion.”
President Joe Biden claims that if Roe v. Wade is overturned, then “every other decision related to the notion of privacy is thrown into question,” in reference to several other highly controversial social issues that continue to plague the nation.
“Does this mean that in Florida they can decide they’re going to pass a law saying that same-sex marriage is not permissible?” Biden demanded, a comment wholly divorced from the significance of the Supreme Court leak at hand.
The WSJ is unimpressed by the presidential theatrics, remarking, “if we can borrow a word he likes, the President is peddling disinformation.”
“The leaked opinion is explicit about distinguishing [Roe v. Wade] and its 1992 legal revision, [Planned Parenthood v. Casey], from cases on unrelated social topics,” the WSJ added.
“Repealing Roe would merely return abortion policy to the states and democratic debate,” the WSJ concluded, “that’s all.”
