While speaking at a press conference from the NATO summit in Spain on Thursday, President Joe Biden expressed his support to break the filibuster rule in order to codify Roe v. Wade into law after the Supreme Court reversed it on Friday.

Biden said “The most important thing to be clear about is I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that.”

“And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this, requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision,” Biden added.

Bloomberg reports that when Biden was asked about how foreign leaders view the US political situation, he responded: “The one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States in overruling not only Roe v. Wade, but essentially challenging the right to privacy.”

“We’ve been a leader in the world in terms of personal rights and privacy rights and it is a mistake, in my view, for the Supreme Court to do what it did,” he added.

Biden referred to the Supreme Court overall as “destabilizing” for its many decisions, including Roe v. Wade. “Right to privacy, not just abortion rights, but yes, abortion rights” Biden said.

The Hill writes a filibuster requires 60 votes, and “There are not 50 senators who support changing the rules around the filibuster, however, making Biden’s suggestion unlikely to go anywhere.”

Bloomberg adds “Biden is under intensifying pressure from liberal Democrats to respond more aggressively to the Supreme Court’s decision last week overturning Roe and ending nationwide abortion rights. The Senate’s filibuster rules enable Republicans, who hold half the seats in the chamber, to block most legislation they oppose.”
