Elizabeth Warren and AOC call for Biden to set up ’emergency’ abortion clinics on federal lands

Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez both call on Democrats to take extreme steps to protect abortion rights after the Roe vs. Wade, but Vice President Kamala Harris said the Biden administration is not considering such action at this time.

Both Warren and Ocasio-Cortez, Democrats from Massachusetts and New York, respectively, lobbied for the government to establish what they called “emergency abortion clinics” on federal land.

Speaking on ABC’s This Week, Warren said Biden should “make abortion as available as possible with the tools he has, including drug abortion, including using federal land as a place for abortions to take place.”

Ocasio-Cortez reiterated these requests at a rally in New York City’s Union Square, calling federal abortion clinics “the tiniest baby steps.”

However, when asked about the possibility of doing so, Vice President Harris told CNN’s Dana Bash it was unlikely.

Pushed further by Bash, Harris left the possibility open, but seemed to spin quickly to suggest it might not be in Democrats’ best electoral interest before the midterm elections.

She specifically cited races in Georgia, North Carolina and Colorado as places where the Democrats could keep or win their slim majority in the Senate (a 50-50 tie in which Harris is entitled to the casting vote), which would allow them to codify Roe in the law.
