President Joe Biden announced a “whole-of-government effort” on Thursday to fight the latest Texas ban on abortions of an unborn child with a heartbeat.

“I am directing that Council and the Office of the White House Counsel to launch a whole-of-government effort to respond to this decision,” Biden wrote in a statement sent to reporters.

In his statement, Biden proposed using the Department of Health and Human Services and the Justice Department to challenge the Texas law and ensure women’s access to abortions.



The president criticized the Supreme Court for choosing not to rule immediately to block the Texas law, calling it “an unprecedented assault on a woman’s constitutional rights.”
