The White House refused to say whether President Joe Biden’s pick for the next Supreme Court justice must be pro-abortion, during a press briefing on Tuesday.
“I’m not going to outline a litmus test from here today,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Feb. 1. Her comments came in response to EWTN correspondent Owen Jensen, who asked, “Will that person have to be pro-abortion?”
While Psaki declined to say more about the future Supreme Court nominee in regards abortion, she repeated to Jensen that the president “believes in a woman’s right to choose.”
