President Joe Biden has a deal for Americans: if Democrats win midterms, he will codify Roe v. Wade.

“The court got Roe right nearly 50 years ago and I believe the Congress should codify Roe, once and for all,” Biden said Tuesday, speaking at a Democratic National Committee event at the Howard Theater in Washington, D.C.

“The first bill I will send to the Congress will be to codify Roe v. Wade. And when Congress passes it, I’ll sign it in January, 50 years after Roe was first decided the law of the land,” Biden added, caveating his promise with the condition of voters electing a Democrat majority to both chambers of Congress.

Watch the clip below:

“The Supreme Court overturned the federal right to abortion in June, leaving the decision up to the states. Biden has signed an executive order aimed at protecting access to abortion and contraception, and he has previously spoken about his desire to codify Roe into law. Any legislation on codifying Roe would be unlikely to pass through the Senate, which requires 60 votes to overcome the filibuster,” The Daily Caller reports.

“If you give me two more senators in the United States Senate, I promise you, I promise you, we’re going to codify Roe and once again make Roe the law of the land,” Biden said in September.
