According to a new report, Joe Biden’s team is considering issuing a public health emergency declaration if Roe v. Wade is reversed by the Supreme Court.
According to a New York Times report, Biden would use the declaration of a public health emergency to protect doctors from liability for treating patients in a state where they are not licensed.
Other suggestions include allowing physicians practicing in states that ban abortions to conduct them on federal premises, such as military bases.
During an interview with the liberal Jimmy Kimmel, Biden indicated that he would use executive authority to block any state or local legislation restricting abortion.
The president said that the overturning of Roe v. Wade would trigger a “mini-revolution” in the United States.
“It’s just ridiculous to me, and I don’t think the nation will stand for it, but we’ll have to do something about it. We believe there are some executive orders that I could use right now,” he added.
The Biden administration’s personnel appear eager to employ emergency executive powers in a politically charged scenario.
In a letter on Wednesday, the president threatened oil companies with penalties if they didn’t increase gasoline production in the United States.
The president has also used the Defense Production Act to suspend solar panel import taxes for two years in an effort to boost the sector.
And in May, Biden invoked the Defense Production Act to try to address the infant formula problem.
A Supreme Court leak on recently revealed that the court is considering overturning Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that legalized abortion nationwide.
The case, which will be argued in front of the court soon, could have major implications for abortionists in the United States.
Far-left abortion supporters have responded by fire-bombing pro-life family clinincs nationwide.
Pro-life groups have also held rallies in response to this news.
It is unclear what the Biden administration will do if Roe v. Wade is overturned, but it appears they are preparing for executive action.
