President Joe Biden said that the right to abortion comes from being a “child of God” during press remarks Wednesday.

“This is about a lot more than abortion … this reminds me of the debate with Robert Bork … [who] believed the only reason you had any inherent rights was because the government gave them to you,” he said.

“I believe I have the rights that I have, not because the government gave them to me … but because I am just a child of God, I exist,” he continued. “I delegated by joining this union here to delegate some rights I have to the government for social good.”

According to a leaked draft opinion obtained by Politico and verified by the Court as authentic, the Supreme Court is expected to overturn the landmark Roe v. Wade decision, which grants women the federal right to an abortion.

As a Catholic, Biden has previously been questioned about his stance on abortion.

“I don’t want to get in a debate with you on theology, but you know,” Biden told a reporter on Ash Wednesday. “Well anyway, I’m not going to make a judgment for other people.”

In September, Biden described himself as a “strong supporter of Roe v. Wade” but said he respects Americans who don’t support the decision.

“I respect people …  who don’t support Roe v. Wade. I respect their views,” he said. “I respect those who believe life begins at the moment of conception and all, I respect that. Don’t agree, but I respect that. Not going to impose that on people.”
