Biden signs executive order aimed at helping women travel for abortion

Fujn’s News of the Week #10

President Joe Biden has signed an executive order, to help women cross state borders, to obtain abortions. The order directs the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to consider allowing Medicaid funds to be used to assist people traveling between states to get abortions. Moreover, it directs HHS to ensure that health care providers comply with federal anti-discrimination laws to provide women necessary medical care without delay.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that it would be up to HHS to ensure that the implementation of the order does not violate the Hyde Amendment. This agreement bans using federal funds for abortions except in cases of rape, incest or danger to woman’s life. It is unclear how HHS will proceed as the order is likely to face legal challenges from conservatives.
