Blinken Leads Top Biden Admin Officials Trashing US over ‘Roe’

'Now, this decision renders my own country an outlier among developed nations in the world... '

(Headline USA) Secretary of State Antony Blinken joined foreign critics of the Supreme Court’s decision last week to strike down Roe v. Wade, calling the ruling concerning.

“As Secretary of State, I usually avoid commenting on Supreme Court rulings,” Blinken said in a statement. “But today’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade has raised understandable questions and concerns across the world and within our [the Department of State’s] workforce.”

“So let me be clear,” Blinken continued. “Under this administration, the State Department will remain fully committed to helping provide access to reproductive health services and advancing reproductive rights around the world.”

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, also blasted the ruling, calling it “cruel, dark, and dangerous,” reported Fox News.

Roe v. Wade not only protected the right to privacy, it also reaffirmed basic principles of gender equality. … I have traveled the globe advocating for women’s rights. Now, this decision renders my own country an outlier among developed nations in the world,” she claimed.

A number of foreign leaders have also condemned the Supreme Court’s ruling, despite the fact that their countries allow voters to weigh in on restricting abortion – which is exactly what the court’s ruling now allows the American public to do.

“The news coming out of the United States is horrific,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared. “My heart goes out to the millions of American women who are now set to lose their legal right to an abortion. I can’t imagine the fear and anger you are feeling right now.

“No government, politician or man should tell a woman what she can and cannot do with her body,” he added. “I want women in Canada to know that we will always stand up for your right to choose.”
