Just weeks following the Supreme Court’s monumental reversal of Roe v. Wade, President Joe Biden (D) has signed an executive order which makes it easier for women to receive abortion pills. President Biden also strengthened protections for birth control under the ObamaCare umbrella and provided an “army of pro bono lawyers to help defend people criminally charged for providing the procedure” according to Alice Miranda Ollstein, from Politico. Florida gubernatorial candidate and current Commissioner of Agriculture, Nikki Fried (D-FL) released a statement on Twitter following the executive order:

“I am pleased to see the Biden-Harris Administration has taken much-needed action to protect access to abortion and combat misinformation following the outrageous Supreme Court ruling taking away women’s rights. As a woman, an attorney, and an elected official, I have grave concerns over the impact of the overturning of Roe on the health and privacy of our entire community. Anti-choice politicians are creating a world where all women are treated as pre-pregnant, impacting their access to all types of health care and opportunities. It is an egregious violation that should be sickening to all Americans. I hope this step is just the beginning of great federal action to guarantee everyone has access to the full spectrum of reproductive health care without fear.”

Fried’s opponent for governor in the Democratic primary, Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) has not released a statement concerning the Biden executive order.

“I don’t think the court or for that matter the Republicans who for decades have pushed this extreme agenda have a clue about the power of American women,” President Biden said. “But they’re about to find out.”

He also stated that with 2 additional pro-abortion Senators and a "pro-choice house" that Congress could "codify Roe as federal law."
