Joe Biden and his administration are doing what they can to resist the Supreme Court’s decision in June to overturn Roe v. Wade, which allows individual states to ban abortions.
On Wednesday, Biden signed his second presidential order aimed at making it easier for women to perform abortions. The new system aims to make it easier for countries that allow abortion to help women from other countries who want an abortion.
The order directs Health Minister Xavier Becerra to investigate any opportunities his department could find that could support women living in states that severely restrict abortion rights. Among the proposals is that abortions should be included in Medicare for women from affected states.
Republicans have no idea how powerful American women are. But they found out in Kansas yesterday, he said, referring to the referendum in which the state voted overwhelmingly to retain abortion rights.
Since the Supreme Court ruling, more than a dozen Republican-controlled states have either banned or imposed additional restrictions on abortions.
Hope for women’s voices
A presidential order is an official document that gives federal agencies instructions on how to act in a particular area. It is legally binding, but it cannot bypass a law passed by Congress. On Wednesday, Congress again called for Roe v. Wade to pass federal law.
– If Congress does not act, the people must elect Senators, members of Congress and women who can protect the right to privacy, liberty and equality, he said.
But Joe Biden practically can’t do much to oppose the Supreme Court and states that have now imposed abortion bans. So he hopes this fall’s congressional elections will give Democrats a stronger majority than the current majority, and he hopes women will give the party a majority.
– As I said before: the fighting is not over yet. He said that HD effectively challenged the women of our country to go to the polls and return the right to choose to themselves, calling HD’s decision a health care crisis.
Roe v. Wade is a legal case from 1973 in which the Supreme Court affirms a woman’s right to abortion in the United States with reference to the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which deals with the constitutional right to privacy.
According to Roe v. Wade, abortions are allowed until the fetus shows viability, which was later described between weeks 24 and 28. However, abortions after week 21 are very rare in the United States.
The name Roe v. Wade is from the name of a pregnant woman who went by the pseudonym Jane Roe, who won the case in 1973 against Attorney General Henry Wade.
The Supreme Court lifted the ruling on June 24, 2022.
