Biden signs executive order aimed at safeguarding abortion access and providing guidance to health care providers

From CNN | Politics by Donald Judd and Kate Sullivan, CNN

President Joe Biden on Wednesday signed an executive order to help ensure access to abortion in light of the Supreme Court's decision earlier this summer to eliminate the constitutional right to the procedure.

The President said the order will help women travel out of state to receive abortions, ensures health care providers comply with federal law so women aren't delayed in getting care and advances research and data collection "to evaluate the impact that this reproductive health crisis is having on maternal health and other health conditions."
