Some US states will seek to arrest women traveling for abortion, says Biden – National

President Joe Biden predicted on Friday that some US states will seek to arrest women for crossing state lines to get abortions after the Supreme Court overturned the constitutional right to statewide trials.

Thirteen Republican-led states have banned or severely restricted the trial under so-called “trigger laws” after the court last week ruled the landmark Roe v. Wade judgment of 1973. Women in these states who seek an abortion may need to travel to states where it remains legal.

Biden called a virtual abortion rights meeting with Democratic state governors on Friday and said he thinks “people will be shocked when the first state … tries to arrest a woman for crossing a state line to get around.” to receive health services.”

He added: “And I don’t think people think that’s going to happen. But it will happen, and it will telegraph across the country that this is a gigantic deal that goes beyond; I mean, it affects all of your fundamental rights.”

Biden said the federal government will act to protect women who have to cross state lines to have an abortion and ensure their access to medicines in states where it is illegal.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham told the meeting her state will “not cooperate” in attempts to track down women who have had abortions in order to punish them. “We will not extradite,” she said.

Abortion rights groups have introduced legislation in several states aimed at preserving women’s ability to terminate pregnancies.

Judges in Florida, Louisiana, Texas and Utah have since issued rulings preventing those states from enforcing new restrictive abortion laws, while the Ohio Supreme Court on Friday declined to prevent the Republican-led state from enforcing an abortion ban.

“There’s so much stress out there,” Hochul said. “It’s a matter of life and death for American women,” she added.

Biden also told the group that there were insufficient votes in the Senate to scrap a supermajority rule known as the filibuster to protect Roe v. Codify Wade into law.

He had proposed that senators remove the filibuster, but the proposal was rejected by aides from key Democratic lawmakers.

“(The) filibuster shouldn’t prevent us from being able to[codify]Roe,” Biden said.
