A Proclamation issued by [Joe] Biden during National Women’s Health Week reiterated his support for abortion in addressing “the health and well-being of women and girls across our Nation.” Biden proclaimed, “Central to this mission is protecting women’s fundamental rights to make their own choices and build their own future. I am committed to defending women’s rights, including their access to reproductive health care. Roe has been the law of the land for almost 50 years; basic fairness and the stability of our law demand that it not be overturned. In response to the continued attack on abortion and reproductive rights across the country, my Administration is exploring all the tools at our disposal to strengthen and protect women’s access to critical reproductive health care.”
He continued the pro-abortion promotion connecting access to abortion with women’s equality stating that “there is still more work to do –- including to defend reproductive rights, which are under unprecedented attack, and to ensure we do not go backwards on women’s equality.”
Meanwhile, Biden’s Director of the White House Gender Policy Council Director and the Director of White House Intergovernmental Affairs held a meeting with leading pro-abortion state legislators to discuss laws designed to ensure access to abortion in light of the anticipated Supreme Court decision which will return the power to make laws on abortion to individual states.
The readout of the meeting explains, “This important discussion follows the passage of proactive reproductive rights measures in at least 10 states so far in the 2022 legislative session, including in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, and Washington. These actions to protect and expand access to reproductive health care stand in sharp contrast to a wave of abortion bans and restrictions that have passed in states across the country.”
