President Joe Biden is scheduled to give remarks on Wednesday about access to abortion and will sign an executive order that directs Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) Xavier Becerra to consider actions to help mothers traveling out of state to receive “reproductive health care,” according to the Washington Post. 

According to Lifenews, the order will allow HHS to channel taxpayer money from Medicaid to cover the expenses of these out of state trips mothers are taking. This will happen at the first meeting of the Task Force on Reproductive Healthcare Access, a notorious step forward in Biden’s pro-abortion policy lineup to fight back against the Dobbs decision from two months ago. 

In a memo about the order, Biden said the following:

The Executive Order directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to consider action to advance access to reproductive healthcare services including through Medicaid for patients who travel out of state for reproductive healthcare services. This directive is in line with the President and the Attorney General’s clear statements on the Administration’s commitment to defending the bedrock right to travel across state lines to seek reproductive healthcare in states where those services remain legal.

The order also is meant to ensure that states follow non-discrimination laws, which the Biden administration claims are necessary “to make sure aboritons are done in situations to save the life of the mother but which the administration is misusing to promote abortions outside those circumstances,” as reported by Lifenews. 

Biden has positioned himself to possibly be the most pro-abortion president in American history, working tirelessly to ensure the right to murder babies in our country. Among other things, he has recently filed a lawsuit against the state of Idaho for outlawing abortion, falsely claiming that it endanger’s women’s lives.
