Earlier this week, we learned about a Supreme Court draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade. Roe has been the law of the land for almost 50 years, and basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned.
The draft opinion calls into question the fundamental right to privacy -- the right to make personal choices about marriage, whether to have children, and how to raise them. These are fundamental rights for Americans -- a critical part of who we are.
If the Supreme Court does overturn Roe v. Wade, it will fall on our nation's elected officials at all levels of government to protect the right to choose. And it will fall on voters to elect pro-choice officials this November.
At the federal level, we will need more pro-choice senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to adopt legislation that codifies Roe, which I will work to pass and sign into law. That's why I'm reaching out to you in this critical moment:
Supporters like you make all the difference in this fight. Donate $7 to the DNC today to support the organizing, voter protection, and other critical programs that will help elect pro-choice Democrats nationwide and protect our majorities.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you do to champion progress and support Democrats.
Joseph R. Biden Jr.
President of the United States
