ACLU Comment on Reproductive Health Executive Order Signed By President Biden
WASHINGTON — President Biden signed an executive order today aimed at protecting reproductive health care, including abortion. In response to the order, Georgeanne Usova, senior legislative counsel with the American Civil Liberties Union, issued the following statement:
“Every day, pregnant people in this nation are facing the cruel reality of being forced to carry a pregnancy against their will and suffer the life-altering consequences. After decades of relentless attacks on abortion access by politicians, we must use every tool to address this nationwide crisis. Today’s announcement is an important step, and we urge the Biden administration to take swift, meaningful action to build on it. We won’t stop fighting until every person can get the care they need regardless of where they live.”
