In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the case that legalized abortion in 1973, President Joe Biden will issue an executive order on Friday to maintain access to abortions.

According to a July 8 White House fact sheet, “President Biden has made plain that the best way to ensure a woman’s freedom to choose is for Congress to reinstate the protections of Roe as federal law.” “Until then, he has pledged to doing everything he can to maintain access to safe and legal abortion and to defend reproductive rights.”

A “Executive Order Protecting Access to Reproductive Health Care Services” will be signed by him to accomplish this.

Access to “reproductive health care services,” such as abortion and contraception, patient privacy and information access, patient and provider security, and the coordination of federal efforts to safeguard “reproductive rights and access to health care” would all be the main topics of the directive.

National pro-life leaders voiced alarm about the directive, particularly with regard to how it will affect abortion-related medications.

In a statement, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini stated, “It is terrible that this government is using its influence to advocate for more and more traumatic abortions that injure women and take innocent lives.” The administration’s campaign for chemical abortion, which poses more health hazards to women than surgical abortion, is of special concern.

Similarly, President Biden “has once again bowed to the extremist abortion lobby, determined to put the full weight of the federal government behind promoting abortion,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America.

“Democrats will stop at nothing to promote their agenda of taxpayer-funded abortion on demand, up until the moment of birth, including dangerous mail-order abortion drugs,” she said in a statement. “Even if it means gutting the long-standing filibuster, expanding the Supreme Court, or putting abortionists in tents in national parks.”

In order to protect “access to reproductive health,” Biden gave the Health and Human Services Secretary instructions to defend “medication” abortion and contraception, guarantee emergency medical treatment, especially for pregnant women, start public education campaigns, and organize public lawyers.

According to the fact page, “Such representation could include defending the right to travel out of state for medical care.”

The directive promises to protect consumers from privacy violations and dishonest business activities, as well as to safeguard sensitive medical data, under the heading of protecting patient privacy.

According to the fact sheet, the administration will also defend both abortion doctors and clinics, including “mobile clinics, which have been deployed near borders to give care for out-of-state patients.”

The order would create a “Interagency Task Force on Reproductive Health Care Access” to organize federal interagency policymaking and program creation as part of coordinating government efforts.

The Catholic faith teaches that human life should be honored and safeguarded from the moment of conception, but Biden has regularly backed abortion.
