HHS was asked to seek an ‘aggressive strategy’ on abortion by Biden, Becerra says
When Todd was asked on “Meet the Press” about clinics that operate on federal soil, Becerra said, “The difficulty is that simply because it’s an idea doesn’t mean it can be put into practice. And so we want to make sure. that we can put things into practice.”
He went on to say that there are now people who need abortion services, “so we’re going to do what we can to get people something as soon as possible, even if it might not be everything they’d like.”
Last week, HHS launched a website to help people find contraception and access abortion services.
Todd also asked Becerra about concerns some Congressional Democrats have that the party isn’t fighting hard enough for abortion access.
“I tell them, ‘Give us some good ideas,’ Becerra said. ‘And I would also ask them to please pass a law. They have it in their power, if they can find the votes to roe decision, that’s what we need more than anything.”
He reiterated that the government will do everything they can, “but when you are deprived of a right, as the Supreme Court has just done with every woman of childbearing age, it is difficult to overcome. It has taken 50 years for us to We’ve come to this point. Now we have to figure out how to do this. It won’t be easy.”
