At Least Joe Biden Did Something About Abortion

At Least Joe Biden Did Something About Abortion

Two weeks have passed since the Supreme Court dropped its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization

wo weeks of predictable confusion and anxiety as right-wing states enact increasingly punitive abortion restrictions

The situation was always going to be dire: With Roe v. Wade overturned and federal abortion protections revoked

seven states have successfully activated their pre-Dobbs trigger laws

banning the procedure in almost every case. Many more are fighting legal challenges,

creating a tangle of red tape that often leaves both providers and patients in limbo

wondering if, how, and when they can legally end a pregnancy where they live

Criminalizing abortion also threatens treatment for other conditions

including (but not limited to) miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, and even certain forms of arthritis

which may benefit from a drug that can be used in medical termination.

As the fallout has unfolded along unsurprisingly chaotic lines, maybe you have wondered when the Democrats

up to and including President Joe Biden, would finally decide to do something about it.
