If and when the Supreme Court of the United States overturns Roe v. Wade, the right for women to choose, the White House is preparing action. On ABC’s The View, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre spoke with host Sunny Hostin about what those steps could be.

“We are looking at all options right now if this ruling or when this ruling happens to take action. But if this happens, one of the things that I can say right now that we will do is call on Congress to restore Roe,” Jean-Pierre said.
