SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, U.S. President:"I'm joined by a group of Democratic governors. We work closely to protect women's rights after this tragic reversal of Roe v Wade. A terrible, extreme decision, in my view, upending lives and impacting on the health and safety of millions of women. And I share the public outrage that this extremist court has committed to moving America backwards with fewer rights, less autonomy, and politicians invading the most personal decisions that not only women, but we will find if they expand, expand on on this decision, men as well."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++3. SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, U.S. President:"Congress is going to have to act to codify the Roe into federal law. As I said yesterday, the filibuster should not stand in the way of us being able to do that. But right now, we don't have the votes in the Senate to change the filibuster, at the moment. That means we need two more votes now... not now when we vote, probably after November. More senators and House majority and House majority elected in November to get this bill to my desk."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++4. SOUNDBITE (English) Joe Biden, U.S. President:"So the choice is clear. We either elect federal senators and representatives who will codify Roe or Republicans who will elect the House and Senate, who will try to ban abortions nationwide, nationwide. This is going to go one way or the other after November. So let's remember the reasoning of this decision has an impact much beyond Roe and to the right to privacy, more generally.++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++5. SOUNDBITE (English) Gov. Kathy Hochul, (D) New York: "This is chaos. It's frightening. But also we're doing what we can to make sure that we are protecting. But what's happening now, the rights of millions of women across this country are now falling on the shorter ... shoulders of just a handful of states. Just a handful of states are now going to have to take care of the health care of women from other states. So we believe, as you do, Mr. President, that what's available to New Yorkers and the other enlightened states should be available to all Americans, and no one should have to travel. And that's why, as you agree with us, Congress has to act." ++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++6. SOUNDBITE (English)  Gov. Roy Cooper, (D) North Carolina:"For now, at least, where you live will determine your rights. So for now, it's up to the states to determine whether women can get reproductive health care. And in North Carolina, they still can. And I'm determined to keep it that way." 7. Wide shot of governorsSTORYLINE:President Joe Biden heard from Democratic governors Friday about alternatives for protecting abortion access following the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.One day after returning from international summits in Europe, Biden described the ruling as "tragic" and warned that Republicans could try to enact a nationwide ban on abortion if they retake control of Congress. He urged Democrats to elect at least two more senators so they could create an exception to the filibuster and codify in law the protections that had been provided under Roe v. Wade. At least two Democratic senators, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, have blocked efforts to sidestep the filibuster. The party would need unanimous backing from the Senate's 48 Democrats and two allied independents, plus the tie-breaking vote of Vice President Kamala Harris, to make that rules change over solid GOP opposition.  "This is chaos, " New York Gov. Kathy Hochul said. "It's frightening."Hochul also suggested that Biden consider having abortions performed at federal facilities like Veterans Affairs hospitals or military bases in states that restrict abortions. North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said women can still get reproductive health care in his state and "I'm determined to keep it that way."However, Biden did not make any new announcements. Some activists and Democrats have been frustrated by what they consider an overly cautious approach from the administration, especially since the court decision has been expected since a draft leaked nearly two months ago. The justice's June 24 ruling overturned a 1973 decision that had declared a constitutional right to abortion. Each state will now determine whether the procedure can be performed. ===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
