Wade, the landmark 1973 decision that made abortion legal nationwide, that decsison, per such court ruling, now left up to the respective state legislatures that craft state laws.

In office since 2021 after he defeated then president Donald Trump in a heated election in 2020, Biden, a Democrat, is a former vice president under former president Barack Obama, the nation's first Black president.
