President Joe Biden spoke from the White House about the Supreme Court ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, the landmark decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

He said the court has done what it's never done before in taking away a constitutional right that is so fundamental to so many Americans.

He says the decision places the health and life of women at risk.

Biden is vowing to do everything in his power to protect a woman's right to an abortion in states where they are now prohibited.

The US Supreme Court voted 6-3 to strike down Row v. Wade.

Biden called the decision ``wrong, extreme and out of touch.''

The White House has been preparing for this moment since a draft of the decision leaked in May.

Officials have been huddling with state leaders, advocates, health care professionals and others to prepare for a future without Roe v. Wade.
