President Biden Promises To Protect Women Traveling For Abortion

The President of the United States, Joe Biden, has revealed that the Federal Government will protect women that are traveling for abortion.

In June, millions of women lost the constitutional right to abort when the Supreme Court overturned 50-year-old Roe v Wade decision.

Since the judgement, individual states have been led to ban the procedure. Currently, they have become battlegrounds in the fight to overturn or uphold abortion services. At the same time, Google says it is taking steps to remove data from users’ location histories that could be used to prosecute people for visits to US abortion clinics.

Therefore for these reasons, women in states where abortion is banned usually cross state lines to states where it is allowed.

Mr. Biden believes some states would try and arrest women who crossed the state for access to abortion.

“I don’t think people believe that’s going to happen. But it’s going to happen,” he said.

He assured women that the government would give access to pills that facilitate abortion in states that have banned it. Thirteen states have already severely curtailed or blocked abortion access since the court’s decision.

According to President Biden, Democratic victories in the mid-term elections would give Congress the power to restore federal abortion rights. However, he said this will go one way or another after November.

Apparently, fears are growing due to the police possibly trying to access search histories and geolocation data on smartphones owned by people who are pursuing plans to terminate a pregnancy.

Taking this under consideration, Google says in the coming weeks, it will start deleting information. This will happen if the system identifies a trip to an abortion clinic or other facilities giving “particularly personal” services.

Google will remove entries in a user’s location history soon after a visit to a sensitive location.
