Biden told HHS to seek ‘aggressive strategy’ on abortion, Becerra says

Asked by Todd on ‘Meet the Press’ about clinics operating on federal land, Becerra said, “The difficulty is that just because it’s an idea doesn’t mean it can happen. And so, what we want to make sure is that we can put things into practice.

He went on to say that there are people who need abortion services now, “so we’re going to do what we can to get people something as quickly as possible, even if it’s maybe not not be everything they would like”.

Last week, HHS launched a website to help people find contraceptives and access abortion services.

Todd also asked Becerra about concerns among some congressional Democrats that the party isn’t fighting hard enough on abortion access.

“I tell them, ‘Give us some good ideas,’ Becerra said. “And I would also ask them to please pass a law. the deer decision, which we need more than anything else.

He reiterated that the administration will do all it can, “but when you’re deprived of a right, like the Supreme Court has just done to every woman of childbearing age, it’s hard to overcome.” It took us 50 years to get here. Now we need to figure out how to do this. It won’t be easy.”
