Blumenthal to Bill Barr: Would You Defend Roe v. Wade If It Were Challenged?

‘It’s been on the books 46 years’

EXCERPT:

BLUMENTHAL: "Would you defend Roe v. Wade if it were challenged?"
BARR: "Would I defend Roe v. Wade? I mean, usually the way these — this would come up would be a state regulation of some sort and whether it’s permissible under Roe v. Wade. And I would -- I would hope that the SG would make whatever arguments are necessary to address that. I think the justices have — the recent ones have made clear that they consider Roe v. Wade an established precedent. It’s been on the books 46 years."
