Washington, D.C., June 25: After the Supreme Court upturned the historic Roe v. Wade decision on Friday, US President Joe Biden pledged to take every action possible to protect abortion rights and encouraged people to choose state and federal officials who will allow the procedure.The decision by the Supreme Court to reverse the Roe v. Wade decision and restore the right of states to restrict abortions was seen as a sad day for the court and the nation.In his address, President Biden said that this decision should not be the last word.Biden said at one point in his address to the White House on Friday that it totally stuns me, stressing that poor women will be hardest affected by the decision.

Biden said the court's decision takes away a constitutional right from Americans and brings the country back 150 years, he said.The court is literally reversing that legacy, according to UN Women, in some areas of the world.Women must be able to exercise their human rights and make informed decisions about the number and spacing of their children, and must have access to information, training, and services, according to a release from UN Women.Women are compelled to resort to less effective means of aborting, according to UN Women, especially for women who are affected by poverty or marginalization, such as minority women.

Roe v. Wade was overturned by the Supreme Court, eliminating the nearly 50-year-old constitutional right to abortion and allowing states to regulate their own practice, according to a majority of conservative justices.
