White House Says ‘No’ to Abortion Clinics on Federal Land

After the Roe v. Wade decision was announced, Democrats were grasping for straws to find ways to keep abortion alive and well in red states.

One of the solutions pitched was for the federal government to open abortion clinics on federal lands.

After one Biden official and a top Democrat Senator suggested this would be a good idea, the Biden administration immediately pushed back.

Not Happening

Democrats are now putting pressure on Biden to open abortion clinics on federal lands.

Part of that push includes Rep. Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The White House responded, “We understand the proposal as well intentioned, but here’s the thing, it could actually put women and providers at risk.”

Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre continued, “And, importantly, in states where abortion is now illegal, women and providers who are not federal employees, as you look at the federal lands, could be potentially be prosecuted.”

When Kamala Harris was asked about the idea, she added, “I think that what is most important right now is that we ensure that the restrictions that the states are trying to put up that would prohibit a woman from exercising what we still maintain is her right, that we do everything we can to empower women to not only seek but to receive the care where it is available.”

Harris was pressed specifically on abortion clinics on federal land, and she clarified, “I mean, it’s not right now what we are discussing.”

In reality, the Hyde Amendment blocks the federal government from undertaking such a venture, so this was never really an option.

It just goes to show how little our elected representatives know about our laws.
