Biden Strategizes With Democratic Governors to Protect Abortion Rights | Politics

Hamstrung by narrow Democratic majorities in Congress, President Joe Biden Friday huddled virtually with Democratic governors to find ways to provide abortion access even as states move to ban or severely restrict the procedure."We're going to do everything in our power" to help girls and women get abortions no matter where they live, Biden told nine governors on a videoconference to plot strategy.
