Liberals Accuse Biden of Not Doing Enough to Protect Abortion Rights

Many on the left have turned on President Biden, saying he is not doing enough to defend abortion rights amid the potential overturn of Roe vs. Wade.

  • “Biden won’t federalize abortion services, won’t even call for a filibuster carve out for abortion rights, and doesn’t think people should be inconveniencing [Supreme Court Justice] Brett Kavanaugh before he casts the deciding forced birth vote… but sure, the real problem is [Sen.] Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.),” liberal legal commentator Elie Mystal tweeted Monday.
  • Mystal also criticized Democrats defending Biden, saying while he will continue voting for them, he doesn’t agree with their lack of fervor on the topic.
  • “I think it was really bad when Joe Manchin made Joe Biden criticize peaceful protests outside of Brett Kavanaugh’s house,” Mystal said. “If only Biden had the votes in the Senate to *support* grassroots protests, he might be able to use his own [expletive] mouth differently.”

“Biden could, TODAY * Lease federal facilities to volunteer federal abortion providers * Send in abortion providers on *mobile* “federal platforms * Have the Department of Transportation guarantee safe and free passage to any person seeking to travel to get health care,” Mystal said.

  • Others chimed in to defend Mystal’s stance, claiming the President is not doing enough to initiate change.
  • “Democrats losing abortion rights while having the Presidency, the House, and the Senate, is going to wake a lot of people up to how [expletive] useless they are,” one user tweeted.
  • “Joe Biden is working harder to defend Brett Kavanaugh than abortion rights,” replied another.
