Joe Biden has suggested he will not leave “fundamental rights” to the “whims of the public” as he responded to reports that the US Supreme Court could overturn Roe v Wade.

A draft opinion was leaked to Politico on Monday, suggesting a majority of justices would vote in favour to strike down the right to an abortion.

“The idea that we’re going to make a judgement that is going to say ‘no one can make a [choice] to abort a child based on the decision of the Supreme Court’, I think goes way overboard,” Mr Biden said.
