US President Joe Biden has signed an executive order on abortion access, as the issue continue to haunt the division in the American society.
The came after two weeks after US Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade and eliminated the constitutional protection of abortion rights for women in the entire country.
However, the presidential order will not fully restore abortion rights.
It also directs Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to submit a report within 30 days on those efforts.
The President has also directed the attorney general and White House counsel to convene private volunteer attorneys and public interest organisations to encourage legal representation for those seeking or offering reproductive health services.
