BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — President Biden signed an executive order aimed at protecting access to reproductive health, including abortion and contraception.

The President’s order comes in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last month overturning Roe versus Wade. Under the order, the administration will take steps to safeguard patient privacy, access to accurate information, and promote the safety and security of patients, providers and clinics. It also directs the Department of Health and Human Services to boost access to abortion pills and various types of contraception.

Speaking at a signing ceremony at the White House, President Biden described the Supreme Court as “out of control.”
