Do Joe Biden and Kamala Harris plan to legalize abortions on humans who are capable of living outside the womb?
Contrary to the claims of several "fact checkers," Biden and Harris plan to legalize abortions on humans who are capable of living outside the womb and all the way up till birth. In their own words, they will do this by "codifying Roe v. Wade," which prohibits states from banning abortions at any stage of pregnancy if any abortionist claims it is for "the health of the mother." Some examples of how Roe defines threats to health include the work of "child care," the "stigma of unwed motherhood," and "the distress" of parenting "an unwanted child." In 1992, the Supreme Court ruled in Planned Parenthood v. Casey that "Roe's essential holding be retained and reaffirmed," including "a confirmation of the State's power to restrict abortions after viability, if the law contains exceptions for pregnancies endangering a woman's life or health." Since then, many states have passed laws that defy Roe and Casey, and Biden and Harris say that they will repeal all of them through federal law.
