PRESIDENT Joe Biden announced Friday that he signed an executive order to stop the Supreme Court ruling on abortion. The Democrat’s decision was published on his Twitter account with an image detailing the measure.
“Today I signed an Executive Order to protect the reproductive rights of women in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s drastic decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. It formalizes the actions I announced right after the decision and will add new measures to protect women’s health,” Biden wrote on the social network.
With the order, Biden would be ignoring the Supreme Court, which weeks ago decided to eliminate Roe v. Wade as a legal precedent in the country.

As the White House explains, the order guarantees abortion and protects patients’ privacy and access to accurate information. It also commits the Democratic administration to ensure access to health care for women undergoing medical procedures.
“President Biden has made clear that the only way to guarantee a woman’s right to choose is for Congress to restore Roe’s protections as federal law. Until then, he has pledged to do everything in his power to defend reproductive rights and protect access to safe and legal abortion,” the Administration said.
