President Biden Signs Abortion Order

He says Republicans are clueless about women's power

On Wednesday, President Joe Biden said the Supreme Court and Republicans are clueless about the power of American women as he signed a second executive order aimed at protecting abortion rights.

The order asks the federal health department to consider allowing Medicaid funds to be used to help facilitate out of state travel for abortions. Like Biden's first order signed in July, it is meant to address the recent Supreme Court decision to end the nationwide constitutional right to abortion.

It is expected to have limited impact, as Republicans in U.S. states push a wave of conservative laws restricting women's healthcare, abortion procedures, access to medication and funding for such services.
