Indivisible on President Biden’s Abortion Remarks
Washington, DC — Today, Mari Urbina, Managing Director for Indivisible, issued the following statement after President Biden delivered remarks at Howard Theater in support of codifying Roe v Wade into federal law:
“President Biden laid out the stakes for the 2022 midterm elections in clear terms: If Republicans gain control of Congress, their efforts to strip our fundamental rights away are far from over. And he made a promise that if voters expand our Democratic majority, the first bill he will push Congress to pass will be a bill to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law.
“Since the Dobbs decision, Indivisible activists have seen an influx of new volunteers and voter engagement, driven by the desire to elect a Congress that will do that and much more. Abortion rights have been a clarifying issue for many voters, because they really feel the impact of attacks on reproductive freedom. The President called on voters to remember how they felt when the terrible Dobbs decision was released. The anger. The worry. The disbelief.
“The choice could not be clearer this November. The Republican Party has already introduced bill that would ban abortion nationwide and promised to do everything in their power to pass it if they win the elections. And it’s not just abortion rights on the GOP’s list. If Republicans are in power, dangerous cuts to critical services, like Social Security and Medicare will be top of list as well. President Biden was right when he said the Supreme Court practically dared voters to be heard this election. And we plan to do just that.”
