Biden to sign order on protecting abortion access amid mounting pressure
WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden will take executive action Friday to protect access to abortion, the White House said, as he faces mounting pressure from fellow Democrats to be more forceful on the subject after the Supreme Court ended a constitutional right to the procedure two weeks ago.The White House said Biden will speak Friday morning "on protecting access to reproductive health care services." The actions he was expected to outline are intended to try to mitigate some potential penalties women seeking abortion may face after the ruling but are limited in their ability to safeguard access to abortion nationwide.Biden is expected to formalize instructions to the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to push back on efforts to limit the ability of women to access federally approved abortion medication or to travel across state lines to access clinical abortion services.President Joe Biden delivers remarks during a ceremony to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to seventeen recipients in the East Room of the White House on July 7, 2022, in Washington, D.C.
