President Joe Biden has weighed in on the leaked draft opinion that appears to show the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to overturn Roe v. Wade, calling on the elected branches of government to take over the preservation of abortion-on-demand.

On Monday evening, Politico published a leak of what appears to be a draft of a majority opinion written by conservative Justice Samuel Alito indicating that, if real and final, the justices have voted 5-4 to finally overturn the 1973 ruling that forced all fifty states to permit legal abortion, as well as 1992’s Planned Parenthood v. Casey, which reaffirmed Roe’s conclusion while modifying some of its details.
