WASHINGTON — Today, President Biden will sign an executive order aimed at supporting people who are being forced to travel out of state to access basic reproductive health care, making sure that health care providers follow federal non-discrimination law, and ensuring federal agencies are measuring the devastating consequences of the loss of abortion access.
Statement from Alexis McGill Johnson, president, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
“As we saw in Kansas last night, people overwhelmingly support reproductive rights and demand the freedom to make their own health care decisions. This executive order from the Biden administration will include provisions advocates for abortion access have called for and is part of the critical work that the administration continues to undertake to bolster abortion access and support people getting the health care they need. We applaud today’s action and continue to encourage all levels of government to do everything in their power to protect reproductive freedom.”
