WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Democratic Whip Katherine Clark (MA-5) released the following statement on President Biden’s Executive Order to further strengthen access to affordable, high-quality contraception:
“I applaud President Biden for taking bold action to expand access to birth control and defend reproductive health care. When the right-wing Supreme Court majority overturned Roe v. Wade one year ago, they also threatened the American people’s freedom to use contraception. Since then, extremist Congressional Republicans have voted against protecting this basic right while threatening to impose a national abortion ban.
“Instead of working across the aisle to grow our economy and grow the middle class, Republicans are abusing their power to insert themselves between you, your doctor, your family, and your faith. President Biden and Democrats are taking every action possible to stop this MAGA war on freedom.”
