President Joe Biden is expected to take executive action to protect access to abortion, according to reports.

Biden faces mounting pressure from fellow Democrats to take more action on the subject after the Supreme Court ended a constitutional right to the procedure.

Biden will speak “on protecting access to reproductive health care services,”  the reports said.

The actions are intended to try to mitigate some potential penalties women seeking abortion may face after the ruling.

The President is expected to formalize instructions to the Departments of Justice and Health and Human Services to counter efforts to limit the ability of women to access federally approved abortion medication

As The Washington Times reported:

Biden‘s executive order will also direct agencies to work to educate medical providers and insurers about how and when they are required to share privileged patient information with authorities — an effort to protect women who seek or utilize abortion services.

Biden will also ask the Federal Trade Commission to take steps to protect the privacy of those seeking information about reproductive care online.

The order comes as Biden has faced criticism from some in his own party for not acting with more urgency to protect women’s access to abortion.

The decision in the case known as Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization overturned the court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling.

Biden has stressed that his ability to protect abortion rights by executive action is limited without congressional action.

“Ultimately, Congress is going to have to act to codify Roe into federal law,”  Biden said last week during a virtual meeting with Democratic governors.

The tasking of the Justice Department and HHS is expected to push the agencies to fight in court to protect women.

But it conveys no guarantees that the judicial system will take its side against potential prosecution by states that have moved to outlaw abortion.
