NWLC Reacts to President Biden’s Executive Order on Abortion

The following is a statement by Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC):

“We commend the President for making it clear that the full weight of the government will be brought to bear on the legal and public health crisis unfolding across our country. We expect them to move forward with the speed and intensity demanded by this Executive Order, and look forward to concrete initiatives that help people get the care they need. This crisis is here because of a decades-long strategy where extremist politicians took over our courts, restricted our right to vote, and gerrymandered their districts in order to deny us economic security, equality, and freedom. Undoing these injustices will take efforts by all of us, including using the full force of the federal government.”
