US President Joe Biden says that US voters will have to defend the “fundamental” right to an abortion if the Supreme Court scraps constitutional guarantees allowing the procedure.

Biden cautions that a copy published by Politico of a draft majority opinion by the court ending the nationwide right had not been verified.

However, if authentic, abortion laws will depend on individual states and “it will fall on voters to elect” officials who back the right to the procedure in November’s midterm elections, Biden says in a statement.
