VP Harris Calls For Federal Abortion Protection Roe V. Wade Anniversary

At a speech in Tallahassee, Florida on Sunday commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Supreme Court landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, Vice President Kamala Harris reaffirmed the White Houses’ commitment to protecting abortion rights and announced a presidential memorandum to try and protect medication abortion.

In order to fight states that are creating barriers for medication abortion like Florida, which Harris said even threatened pharmacists with criminal charges, the White House announced a presidential memorandum to protect access to medication abortion. “Members of our Cabinet and our administration are now directed to identify barriers to access and recommend actions to make sure that: doctors can legally prescribe, that pharmacies can dispense and that women can secure safe and effective medication,” Harris said.
