Joe Biden publishes a memo protecting abortion pills while Kamala heads to Florida for a speech

Going on Sunday against Republicans and the 6-3 conservative Supreme Court on what would have been the 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Joe Biden issued a presidential memorandum to protect access to the abortion pill.

Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris will speak in Tallahassee, Florida, on Sunday afternoon to announce the new guidelines and discuss “next steps in the fight for reproductive rights.”

The Supreme Court in June overturned the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, ruling on Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that removed federal protections against abortion and returned rights to the states.

“Today, in lieu of the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade, we celebrate recognizing that the Supreme Court took away a constitutional right from the American people last year,” Biden wrote in a statement Sunday.

Harris will announce in her remarks that the government’s new plan “ensures safe access to medication for abortion,” referring specifically to the drug mifepristone, a pill used to induce a medical abortion or force a miscarriage . When combined with misoprostol, the drug is 97 percent effective during the first 63 days of pregnancy and may also be effective in the second trimester.

Democrats proudly applaud barbaric policies to allow unrestricted abortions — including infanticide. That’s all anyone needs to know,” the Floruda Republican Party wrote in a statement about Harris’ upcoming remarks.

The 50th anniversary of Roe v. Wade has sparked a wave of backlash from both sides of the abortion argument.

Protesters at the March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Saturday marked the first time the rally took place in the post-Roe landscape. Thousands of pro-life protesters celebrated the Supreme Court decision.

Meanwhile, pro-abortion groups and activists have denounced the decision, labeling it a huge step backwards in the fight for women’s rights.

“Despite how unpopular and dangerous their agenda, Republicans are racing against themselves to take Americans’ freedoms — and they’re not slowing down,” the Democratic National Party wrote in a statement on the 50th anniversary.

The president, in his statement Sunday morning, again called on Congress to codify abortion protections into law — a feat now even more unlikely with the GOP majority in the House.

“Since the Supreme Court’s decision, Americans have spoken up again and again: Women should be able to make these very personal decisions without political interference,” Biden said.

Yet Republicans in Congress and across the country continue to push for a national ban on abortion, criminalizing doctors and nurses, and making birth control more difficult. It is dangerous, extreme and unattainable,” he added. “I will continue to fight to protect a woman’s right to choose.”

“Congress must reinstate the protections of Roe v. Wade in federal law — it’s the only way we can fully ensure a woman’s right to choose in every state.”

One tactic the Democrats want to use now that states can restrict abortion rights seemingly out of control is to ensure that all women have access to the abortion pill.

“Since the day of the Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, President Biden has emphasized the need to protect access to mifepristone, a drug used in drug-induced abortion and approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Drug Administration (FDA) for more than 20 years and is responsible for the majority of all abortions in the United States,” according to a White House fact sheet.

The presidential memorandum announced that the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), along with the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS), will consider new guidelines to support patients and healthcare providers, as well as pharmacies seeking to legally prescribe or want to grant access to mifepristone.

This protection would apply to all women “regardless of where they live.”

The second part of the memo aims to ensure that those seeking the abortion pill can access it “free from threats or violence.”

“The president has long made it clear that people should have access to reproductive care without harassment, threats or violence,” the White House fact sheet notes. ‘Pharmacies should not be treated differently.’
