Boyfield added to “Sky News Arabia” that despite what Biden has achieved by lowering unemployment rates, the issue of high prices will have the biggest impact, as at the political level there is nothing but high prices.

He continued, “While foreign policy issues do not usually significantly affect the vote of American voters, because of the wide-ranging repercussions of that war and its impact domestically, it is expected to play a role in the results of those elections.” especially considering its impact on the rise in energy and food prices.”.

“It will be up to voters to elect pro-choice officials in November. At the federal level, we need more pro-choice senators and a pro-choice majority in the House to pass legislation that codifies the issue, which I agree with.” will pass works and sign into law,” he continued. †

Republicans wait

And a number of states, from Florida to Idaho, won’t wait for the federal Supreme Court’s decision as state lawmakers, led by Republicans, act “as if the case had already been dropped,” leading to new restrictions to make abortion illegal. in as many circumstances as possible.

Given the anti-abortion laws of three judges appointed by former President Donald Trump, and the questions raised by those judges, both sides believe the court will say “there is no constitutional right to abortion.”
