(RepublicanReport.org) – In June 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, returning the decision about whether or not to allow women the right to have an abortion to the states. The timing and seriousness of the action made the abortion rights issue a major player in the 2022 midterm elections. One year later, the healthcare and privacy matter is still on voters’ minds, and the issue will likely play a major role once again in the upcoming election.
On June 23, the Associated Press reported that three reproductive groups chose to endorse President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris for the 2024 presidential election cycle. The groups include NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, and Emily’s List. Planned Parenthood executive Alexis McGill Johnson called Biden an “incredibly valuable partner” in the fight for women’s bodily autonomy.

AP referred to all three organizations backing the president and VP as the top groups for reproductive rights — a major win for the pair. Johnson said there had been a flurry of attacks against the pro-choice stance, and the Biden team has been on the side of women’s rights every step of the way, earning the endorsement. The president’s campaign manager, Julie Chavez Rodriguez, responded to the announcement stating Biden and Harris were glad the organizations chose to support their run.
According to a recent poll, 57% of Americans are still against the SCOTUS decision from 2022 — levels that are relatively unchanged since the ruling. Rodriguez told POLITICO that abortion will be a “galvanizing issue” and a focal point for the Biden/Harris ticket in 2024. Biden’s former White House Chief of Staff, Ron Klain, said he believes the issue will be a “major theme” leading up to the general election.
Do you think former President Donald Trump will begin to see big endorsements like this for his 2024 campaign?
