President Joe Biden on Friday signed an executive order aimed at protecting access to abortion services nationwide.
Morgan Marietta, acting chair of the political science department at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, told WATD News the executive order likely wouldn’t have much impact on its own.
He also says the executive order could also face a possible challenge in the Supreme Court.
However, a ban imposed by some states to prevent travel to states that provide abortion services will likely be reversed.
Marietta says the recent Roe v. Wade decision demonstrates a real shift in the court’s judicial philosophy.
Marietta thinks the executive order can also be framed as a way to mobilize Democratic voters to go to the polls and elect pro-choice lawmakers.
