Is The President Of The US Agreeing With This Decision?

Karine Jean-Pierre, the White House press secretary clarified President Joe Biden’s take on this situation. She addressed the president’s position on the issue during an Air Force Once press gaggle”.

Over the years, the Democrats have established the need to pack the court. However, with SCOTUS’ decision to overturn Roe V. Wade ruling and Planned Parenthood v. Casey, the Democrats are now making more noise regarding expanding the court.

Why is this point reportedly highlighted you may ask?

Well, the three key justices that impacted the Roe V. Wade ruling were primarily appointed during the presidency of former US President Donald Trump. This is definitely a major point since these justices are looking forward to dismissing any progression made. In fact, same-sex marriage and many other rulings that made progress over the years are under threat of reversal.

Biden Still Does Not Support Court Packing, White House Confirms

But President Joe Biden isn’t in favor of this courtroom expansion. 

Jean Pierre stated to the reporters, “So, I know I’ve… I was asked this question yesterday, and I’ve been asked it before — and I think the president himself … about expanding the court,” “That is something that the president does not agree with. That is not something that he wants to do. 

Why Are The Other Democrats Focusing On Expanding The Court?

Sen. Ed Markey without wasting any time tweeted the emergence of expanding the court when the news of the ban was leaked. 

“A stolen, illegitimate, and far-right Supreme Court majority appears set to destroy the right to abortion, an essential right which protects the health, safety, and freedom of millions of Americans. There is no other recourse. We must expand the court.”

Soon after his tweet, the topic of court expansion became trending. The Democrats’ main motive is to give the powers of making landmark decisions to the right hand. The three justices appointed by the Trump administration have reflected misogynist ideologies. After the abortion ban, it created chaos in America as 13 states are currently on the list where abortion is banned. 

So, what is the future of gay or same-sex marriage? There are rumors that it is next in line and the justices are planning on reconsidering the legalization of same-sex marriage. 

Sen. Elizabeth Warren D-Mass also talked to ABC News and explained why it is important to expand the court on an emergency basis.

Warren said, This court has lost legitimacy. They have burned whatever legitimacy they may still have had after their gun decision, after their voting decision, after their union decision.” “They just took the last of it and set a torch to it,” “I believe we need to get some confidence back in our court and that means we need more justices on the United States Supreme Court.”

With a majority on the side of expansion of court, it is still unclear what the future holds for this country.

President Biden may not be in support of expansion but he is also not happy with the abortion ban. He criticized the decision openly and asked the justices to restore the Roe V. Wade ruling for giving the women of America their basic rights.

If the court is really going to expand, the decision is not taken yet. But let’s see in which direction the country will move.
