Joe Biden is fighting the Supreme Court for allowing Texas’ pro-life law to remain in effect. The law in question prohibits abortions after six weeks for women.

According to sources on Friday, Biden was concerned SB8 would infringe on women’s right to choose. Abortion providers have sided with Democrats and also filed a lawsuit against Texas on Friday, which the Supreme Court has agreed to hear.

However, Texas officials stated that lawsuits cannot be filed until the law is implemented. Meanwhile, Biden has urged Congress to legislate abortion as a constitutional right.

“The President is deeply concerned by the Supreme Court’s decision to allow SB8 to continue in effect because of the consequences the law has had on women in Texas and across the country, and on the rule of law,” said Press Secretary. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said. “I just want to reiterate that the president is deeply committed to constitutional rights, recognizing Roe v. Wade. In the past, he argued for and supported the systematization of Roe through the transfer of The Women’s Health Protection Act. ”

Meanwhile, the high court dismissed the Justice Department’s lawsuit against the Texas law because it had made it clear it would only hear private cases.
