According to Reuters, President Biden is considering a variety of measures, including executive orders, to support so-called abortion “access” in a post-Roe America. Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Tuesday that the President has asked the White House Gender Policy Council, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and the White House Counsel’s Office to draft a plan “to protect women’s rights.”

“It may not all be executive orders … a lot of this is ensuring that we have increased access and funding so that women who are living in the states, if Roe were to be overturned, would be able to have expanded access and capabilities and some of that could be from the Department of Justice [DOJ],” Psaki said.

She explained that the DOJ is being prepped to defend abortionists, pharmacies that dispense the abortion pill, and women who obtain abortions from criminal cases and lawsuits. However, these prosecutions and lawsuits would presumably be under individual states’ laws, and, according to its own website: “The Department of Justice has no authority to intervene in matters of state law. The Department of Justice can assume jurisdiction only when there has been a violation of federal law.”

One measure being considered by the administration is pressuring the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to make the abortion pill more readily available, perhaps by making it easier for people to order it online, across state lines, and from overseas. This would presumably be according to what is known as the “no-test protocol,” in which no prior screening for gestational age or potential complications is performed. However, in spite of abortionists’ claims to the contrary, no-test chemical abortions have proven to be potentially dangerous. Furthermore, making the pill available for delivery by mail is a system that has been repeatedly abused by predators.

The Biden administration is also considering asking HHS and the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to allow Medicaid funds to be used for travel expenses for low-income women seeking abortion outside of their home states. This would require American taxpayers to subsidize abortion, regardless of their personal convictions.

Reuters reports that “[t]he Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Surgeon General’s Office could also be tapped to put out a report on the ‘profound physical, mental and emotional impact on women from not having access to reproductive health services.’” But abortion is not a “reproductive health service” because abortion destroys the results of reproduction after it has already taken place, and because legitimate health care is about curing, not killing.

Press Secretary Psaki told reporters the White House would not detail the specifics of its plans until after the Supreme Court issues its final decision in Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization.

About the Author

Live Action
Live Action was started in 2003, by one 15-year-old girl, Lila Rose, in her family’s living room – with the goal to expose what abortion does to the preborn child.  Lila worked with friends to make pro-life presentations to groups and shine a light on the reality of abortion.  Lila started undercover investigations in 2006, while at UCLA.  She was 18 at the time. In 2008, Live Action was legally formed as a non-partisan, non-profit organization. Later that year, with a few of her friends, Lila created and produced the first nationally televised undercover investigation of the abortion industry. Live Action exists today to shift public opinion on the killing of preborn children and defend the rights of these most vulnerable among us. Through compelling educational media, human interest storytelling, and investigative reporting, we reveal the humanity of the preborn and expose the abortion industry exploiting women for profit. With the largest and most engaged online following in the pro-life movement, Live Action is leading the transformation to end this grave human rights abuse.
