White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre took the podium earlier this week to announce the Biden administration’s plans to fight back against the overturning of Roe v Wade.
Those plans include using Medicaid resources in order to fund abortions across the United States, which would seem to be a clear violation of the Hyde amendment.
In her official statement, Karine Jean-Pierre insisted that the White House will “follow the law” in their pro-abortion move, but admitted there is no plan to do so at the moment:
Adding more, Jean-Pierre said that the administration believes overturning Roe v Wade in the Supreme Court was “unconstitutional.”
Seriously. The White House’s official opinion on a ruling from the nation’s highest court suggests that very court and its rulings are “unconstitutional.”
The White House’s comments on abortion come the day after a Republican-backed ballot initiative to remove abortion from the state constitution in Kansas failed.
