President Biden joined a chorus of liberals who were troubled by the Supreme Court who brought a Texas law banning abortion into effect after six weeks overnight.
The president claimed the new law was "extreme" and "blatantly violates the Roe v. Law". Wade enshrined constitutional law "while it would affect access to health care for women" significantly ".
Biden added the race and class angle, a requirement for the Democrats, claiming that this will disproportionately affect "color communities and low-income individuals".
The law limits almost all abortions after a heartbeat is detected.
It makes exceptions for medical emergencies that are not race or income based.

Representative Cori Bush (D-MO) was fully in Biden's efforts to get the race card, suggesting that wealthy whites would still have access to abortions.
But she added a twist. She believes the LGBT community will be disproportionately affected by the inability to get abortions.
“I think of the blacks, browns, low paid, gays, and young people in Texas. This ban on health care for abortion will harm people disproportionately, ”Bush tweeted.
“Wealthy whites will have access to abortion care. Our churches will not do that. "

In reality, the Supreme Court just refused to hear motions to reject the law, which was signed by Governor Greg Abbott in May.
Mary Trump tweeted that the Supreme Court action proves we need to increase the number of judges because they are turning America into "a fascist theocratic apartheid state."
we become a fascist theocratic apartheid state because we have to keep the filibuster and limit SCOTUS to nine judges to save democracy? #EndTheFilibuster #ExpandTheCourt

It is time to build a culture of living in America and end abortions
We stand by Texas

Just last month Mississippi Attorney General Lynn Fitch (R) filed a 60-page brief asking the Supreme Court to remove Roe v. Wade, arguing the case was "hopelessly impracticable".
The state appealed against judgments by lower courts that overturned a law that banned virtually all abortions after 15 weeks of gestation. In early July, an Obama-appointed federal judge blocked a similar law in Arkansas.

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is known to threaten the Supreme Court – especially Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch – at a rally for abortions in the immediate vicinity of the court.
First of all, Schumer said to President-elect Trump: "You take on the secret services, they have six options from Sunday to take revenge on you."
Today he threatens 2 Supreme Court judges: “You will pay the price. You won't know what hit you. ”Pic.twitter.com/jGQ8m5qcjB

"I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have triggered the whirlwind and you will pay the price," Schumer cried, pointing a stern finger.
"You won't know what hit you if you make these terrible decisions."
Are his threats being carried out now that the Texas Abortion Act is in place?
