President Biden signed an executive order aimed at protecting abortion access after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. While it will not restore access to abortion in those states that have restricted or will restrict the procedure, the order is intended to help educate people on their existing rights. In his remarks at the signing, Biden urged Americans to vote in order to codify Roe as federal law, acknowledging that to do so the Senate needs "two additional pro-choice senators" to change the filibuster rules. In addition, he said that if Republican lawmakers are able to pass a nationwide abortion ban, he would veto it.
