Supreme Court ruling on Texas abortion law is attack on rights – Biden

President Joe Biden on Thursday said the US Supreme Court’s ruling on Texas’ abortion ban “is an unprecedented assault on a woman’s constitutional rights,” after the top court allowed the law to remain in place.
Biden said while the ruling was not the final word on what he called an “extreme” state law, he was directing the federal government to see how it could “ensure that women in Texas have access to safe and legal abortions… and what legal tools we have to insulate women and providers from the impact of Texas’ bizarre scheme of outsourced enforcement to private parties.” 
US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says that the House will consider the Women’s health protection act in wake of the Supreme Court action on the Texas abortion law. 

The Democratic-controlled US House of Representatives in coming weeks will debate and vote on legislation stopping states from enacting restrictive anti-abortion regulations like the one just approved by Texas, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday.

Saying in a statement that the Texas statute “delivers catastrophe to women in Texas, particularly women of color and women from low-income communities,” Pelosi said a Democratic bill will be brought before the full House for debate “upon our return” from a recess that is scheduled to end September 20.
Biden will speak to US lawmakers about legislation to protect women’s rights to get abortions, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki said on Thursday.
