C-SPAN reports: President Biden said it was a “sad day for the court and the country” and warned “the health and life of women of this nation are now at risk.” His remarks came after the Supreme Court voted to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which protected women’s rights to an abortion. The president called on Congress to pass federal legislation protecting abortion rights, and he said the Department of Health and Human Services would ensure the availability of contraception. President Biden also implored protesters to remain peaceful saying, “violence is never acceptable.”
