“The White House will host more than 80 state legislators from 41 states across the country to discuss the statewide attacks on reproductive rightsas well as state efforts to safeguard access to reproductive health care,” the spokesperson said.
It highlights that the meetings will address the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to defending reproductive rights and the measures that have been taken at the federal level to protect access to reproductive health care, as well as the importance of state partners. .
“Today, the leaders of the states that have taken steps to uphold reproductive rights will come together to discuss the efforts of Republican elected officials to ban abortion,” the official adds, “Tomorrow, the leaders of the states where access to abortion remains protected will discuss their Efforts to safeguard and further support access to reproductive health care“.
In 2022, the Supreme Court struck down the protection of the right to abortion in place since 1973 under the decision roe vs. Wade.
That decision, based on an opinion by Judge Samuel Alito, opened the door for each state to determine its legislation on maintaining or prohibiting this reproductive right with different consequences for women.
