Approximately two weeks after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Joe Biden came out with some scathing remarks and signed an executive order trying to preserve access to abortions.
Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley had more than one issue with Biden’s actions, and he appeared on Fox News to air his grievances.
One thing he was upset about was Biden referring to the current Supreme Court members as “extremists.”
Biden also said that the Supreme Court did not consider early English and American cases on abortion.
Luckily, we had Turley to tell us that what Biden said was a complete lie.
“There was much about these remarks that were quite curious,” Turley began. “First of all, he seemed to refer to Griswold as standing for the opposite of what Griswold stands for. I mean, Griswold was the protection of that right. He seemed to refer to it as the rejection of the right to use contraception.”
“But there were some unfair moments directed at the court, not just calling them repeatedly, the justices, ‘extremists,’ but, you know, he says, as you noted, that they didn’t consider the early English and American cases on abortion. That’s entirely and demonstrably untrue. Now, you could disagree with how they view that history, but to say that they ignored it was really quite unfair. But there were other aspects that I expect justices were probably grinding their teeth when listening to this.”
