A group of 25 senators recently sent a letter to Biden urging him to use federal lands to provide abortion in states where access to abortion will be outlawed or restricted.
For the moment, the Biden administration is saying that it will not pursue such an idea…
The White House signaled Monday that it is not pursuing a Senate Democratic proposal that says the Biden administration could offer abortion services on federal lands after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last week.
Just days after the court ruled to strike down the landmark 1973 decision that guaranteed abortion rights nationwide, a White House official said that the Democratic proposal was “well-intentioned” but that it “could put women and providers at risk.”
One of the big problems with trying to provide abortion on federal lands is the fact that facilities would have to be constructed.
And that could take a lot of time.
On the other hand, there are U.S. military bases in all 50 states, and many of them currently have buildings that are not being used.
In addition, a lot of them actually have hospitals that have extra space.
