The letter by Warren expressed specific demands and recommendations, including:
“We urge you to immediately issue an executive order instructing the leaders of every federal agency to submit their plans to protect the right to an abortion within 30 days. Americans across the country are at risk of losing their fundamental rights, including their constitutional right to abortion protected for generations. They deserve no less than a whole-of-government response.” ( MS Magazine, June 13, 2022).
Additional suggestions were:
- Increasing access to medication abortion.
- Providing resources for individuals seeking abortion care in other states, such as vouchers for travel, childcare services and other forms of support.
- Establishing a reproductive health ombudsman at the Department of Health and Human Services to educate the public and analyze data about access to reproductive services.
- Enforcing the “Free Choice of Provider” requirements guaranteeing Medicaid beneficiaries the freedom to seek family planning services from their provider of choice.
- Clarifying protections for sensitive health and location data to prevent the sale of personally identifiable information from websites and apps (such as period trackers) in states that criminalize reproductive decision-making.
- Using federal property and resources to increase access to abortion, such as providing federal employees with paid time off and reimbursement for expenses necessary to access abortion.
“Democrats need to use every tool at their disposal to protect women and their constitutional right to an abortion. President Biden’s executive authority to marshall the resources of the entire federal government is one of our most powerful tools.” wrote Warren in her letter to the White House. Now is the time to act,” said Warren.
The Fight for Abortion Rights in Post-Roe America is the cry from Senate Democrats.
Trump supporters resent being called deplorable. So what adjective do they think accurately describes people who support, believe in, and encourage leaders to break the law, be violent, and lie? Trump supporters resent being called stupid or gullible. So what other adjectives would describe a person who believes fantastical assertions without evidence being presented? The “big lie” has not only not been proven to be accurate; it has been disproven by compelling, indisputable evidence. Maybe being a cult member explains the phenomenon of the devoted Trump base.
