Biden DOJ Rolls Out ‘Reproductive Rights Task Force’

On Thursday, Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) announced the creation of a new task force aimed at increasing access to abortion and other so-called “reproductive rights” following the historic Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade.

According to CNN, the “Reproductive Rights Task Force” will be chaired by Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta. The group’s purpose will be to “monitor and evaluate” abortion laws at the state and local levels, including bans on abortion-inducing drugs and laws imposing criminal charges for those who aid and abet abortions.

“The Court abandoned 50 years of precedent and took away the constitutional right to abortion, preventing women all over the country from being able to make critical decisions about our bodies, our health, and our futures,” Gupta said in a statement, falsely equating abortion with constitutional rights. “The Justice Department is committed to protecting access to reproductive services.”

Biden had previously signed an executive order that intended to use the full force of the federal government to protect abortion. Following the announcement, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued its own guidance for healthcare providers with regards to abortion.

In his speech, where he frequently slurred his words and made numerous mistakes, Biden specifically called on the DOJ to take action. “Much like they did in the civil rights era,” Biden said, ordering the DOJ “to do something, to do everything in their power to protect these women seeking to invoke their rights.”

However, despite Biden’s latest promises, the White House has rejected some of the most radical proposals from the far-left, including expanding the Supreme Court and using federal lands such as national parks to set up abortion clinics. Biden has called for eliminating the filibuster in order to pass a law that would codify the conditions of Roe v. Wade into federal law.
