SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, U.S. President:"America is better positioned to lead the world than we ever have been. We have the strongest economy in the world. Our inflation rates are lower than other nations in the world. The one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of the United States on overruling not only Roe v Wade, but essentially challenging the right to privacy. We've been a leader in the world in terms of personal rights and privacy rights. And it is a mistake, in my view, for the Supreme Court to do what it did."3. SOUNDBITE (English) Reporter asking question:"What further specific executive actions are you considering in response to the Roe ruling? And would you declare a public health emergency as several Democrats are calling on you to do?"4. SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, U.S. President:"I'll be happy to go in detail with you on that ... I'm having a meeting with a group of governors when I get home on Friday and I'll have announcements to make then. But the first and foremost thing we should do is make it clear how outrageous this decision was and how much it impacts, not just on woman's right to choose, which is a critical, critical piece, but on privacy generally. On privacy generally. And so I'm going to be talking to, to the governors as to what actions they think I should be taking as well. And but the most important thing to be clear about is we have to change ... I believe we have to codify Roe v Wade in the law. And the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that. And if the filibuster gets in the way, it's like voting rights. It should be, we provide an exception for this, the ... requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision. "5. Cutaway, reporters6. Wide, Biden speakingSTORYLINE:President Joe Biden said Thursday that the Supreme Court's decision ending a constitutional right to abortion is “destabilizing” and that he supports changing Senate rules to codify nationwide abortion protections.    Biden was speaking to reporters at the conclusion of a five-day foreign trip to huddle with NATO allies in Madrid and the leaders of the Group of Seven advanced democratic economies in the Bavarian Alps, which came as the nation was still grappling with the fallout from Friday's Supreme Court decision.  “America is better positioned to lead the world than we ever have been,” Biden said. “But one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of United States in overruling not only Roe v. Wade, but essentially challenging the right to privacy.”  Biden said he would support changing the Senate filibuster rules, which require 60 votes to pass most legislation, to allow bringing a bill extending nationwide abortion protections to pass by simple majority, but he said it would likely require voters to send additional Democratic Senators to Washington to get done.
