Calling the US Supreme Court “out of control”, the president Joe Biden A presidential order aimed at strengthening access to abortion in a state banning abortion following a court ruling two weeks ago to overturn the constitutional right to end pregnancy was signed on Friday.
Biden, adjacent to Vice President Kamala Harris and Health Secretary Xavier Besera, said he had stripped U.S. citizens of fundamental rights that he said were protected by the Constitution, including the right to privacy in health issues such as seeking abortion. He blamed a conservative majority in court.
“We cannot allow the uncontrollable Supreme Court, which works with the Republican radical element, to deprive us of freedom and our personal autonomy,” he said from the White House.
The president called for Judge Clarence Thomas’ comments in favor of overturning the Roe v. Wade case, which led to challenges to past judgments on contraceptive access, gay marriage, and other issues.
“How many centuries are they?” Asked Biden, who sounded incredible. He promised to reject future Republican-led efforts to ban abortion nationwide. Affordable care methods ensure women’s free contraception and contraceptive counseling.
Biden then signed a presidential order promising to protect the safety of abortion patients and health care providers and to protect access to procedures through mobile clinics near state boundaries that limit access to abortion. ..
The order will also issue a report to the Department of Health and Human Services within the following month detailing actions to protect drug abortion, secure access to emergency contraceptive devices and IUDs, and enhance reproductive education. I am instructing you to do so.
It is unclear exactly what the federal government is planning, but it has instructed HHS to take steps to protect access to abortion drugs. The Food and Drug Administration approved the abortion drug mifepristone more than 20 years ago as a safe and effective way to end pregnancy 10 weeks ago.
In December, the FDA permanently allowed the mailing of tablets from licensed pharmacies and healthcare providers. Planned Parenthood, a healthcare provider that supports access to abortion services, praised the decision at the time as a significant expansion of reproductive rights.
The order will be issued two weeks after the Supreme Court Voted to overturn that groundbreaking 1973 Roe v. Wade decision And end the 50-year case. So far, at least eight states, including Texas, Alabama and Missouri, have banned abortions, and over the next two months, an additional 12 states are expected to limit or outlaw access to abortions.
Furious and upset by the court’s decision, Democrats pressured Biden and Congress to do more to respond to the ruling. And while the directive is an attempt to calm some of the wrath of the masses, the directive is ambiguous, leaving much of the details settled by Besera and legal experts.
Biden also instructed HHS on Friday to provide emergency medical care to pregnant women experiencing miscarriage and other complications.
Abortion rights activists are worried that medical professionals will delay the treatment of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, fearing that state prosecutors may interpret these interventions as a form of abortion.
Meanwhile, advocates of abortion urged lawmakers to suspend the Senate’s filibuster rules, which require a minimum of 60 votes to pass the legislation. Those who strongly support the court’s decision to abort Roe.
Biden admitted that his White House reality would address on Friday and urged Americans to vote for their conscience in the November midterm elections. “The fastest way to recover Roe is to pass a national law that codifies Roe, which will be signed as soon as it passes at my desk,” he said.
Women living in states that prohibit abortion must either order pills from abroad at some risk or cross state boundaries to receive a prescription in a state where the procedure is legal.
