Democrats are trying desperately to console themselves over the recent decision to overturn Roe V. Wade and send abortion lawmaking power back to the 50 states.
Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra tried to console NBC talking head Chuck Todd on Sunday, saying, “Certainly, I don’t believe this decision by this court in Dobbs is going to stand long. This is just not America. We are not about taking rights.”
“We’re going to explore everything we can,” Becerra said, including a law from Congress and executive action.
“But when you are stripped of a right, as the Supreme Court has just done to every woman of childbearing age, it is tough to overcome. It took 50 years for us to get as far as we did. Now we have to figure out how to do this. It will not be easy,” he said.
Sure, overturning Roe V. Wade was the right decision constitutionally, but it seems like the battle to give all women abortion rights will be a long one and Democrats will not go down easily.
