Biden signs executive order on abortion access

Friday's move came two weeks after the US Supreme Court struck down the landmark Roe v. Wade and eliminated the constitutional protection of abortion rights for women across the country. The executive order aims to safeguard access to reproductive health care services and protect the privacy of patients and their access to accurate information, among other things, according to the White House.

Biden to end filibuster in Congress on women's abortion rights

Biden condemned on Thursday the SC verdict overturning the Roe 1973 ruling upholding a woman's right to abortion as "outrageous behavior" saying for the first time that he supported ending the filibuster on the issue as protection to women and a broader constitutional right to privacy.

US Supreme Court limits Biden's power to cut emissions
IANS -
The case against the EPA was brought by West Virginia on behalf of 18 other mostly Republican-led states and some of the nation's largest coal companies. They argued that the agency did not have the authority to limit emissions across whole states. These 19 states were worried their power sectors would be forced to move away from using coal, at a severe economic cost.

US Supreme Court deals severe blow to Biden's Green agenda
IANS -
In a 6-3 ruling, the nine-member bench ruled that the US Environment Protection Agency cannot go beyond its congressionally-mandated authority to enforce emission rules. "Capping carbon dioxide emissions at a level that will force a nationwide transition away from the use of coal to generate electricity may be a sensible 'solution to the crisis of the day'," Chief Justice John Roberts, one of the six conservative justices, wrote in the majority ruling.

US faces new protests on abortion laws after gun law engages less attention
IANS -
President Joe Biden on Friday took strong exception to the court's ruling to rescind federal abortion rights, while appealing to people, especially women, to remain calm as several of them have gone on nationwide protests against the apex court's ruling. Biden blamed the three justices appointed by former President Donald Trump. In the US, unlike India where supreme court judges have a fixed tenure, SC judges are appointed for a life term.

Gun reforms act to become nationwide law after President Biden's approval
IANS -
The legislation falls short of all the demands of the Democrats while for the Republicans it's a face-saving gesture with the American public crying wolf for strict gun laws in the aftermath of the mass shootings in Buffalo super store in New York and Texas public school in Uvalde that claimed 10 black lives and resulted in the death of 19 school children and two teachers in the most horrific slaying of the innocent common people.

How many times have you heard that? Just do something? For God's sake, just do something. Well, today, we did," he added.

The bipartisan new gun deal is historic, but falls short of Biden's wish-list
IANS -
The new gun law has actually emerged from asymmetrical negotiations in which the top Democratic negotiator always predicted he wouldn't get everything he wanted, while the top Republican always promised the bill wouldn't have anything he didn't want, claim Olivier Knox backed by research from Caroline Anders in a special dispatch in the Washington Post reporting the Bipartisan framework legislations proceedings.
