ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ: “Open abortion clinics on federal lands in red states right now!” “Right now!” – RNC Research (@RNCResearch) June 28, 2022 I just spoke with @ewarren, who suggested the Biden administration establish Planned Parenthood outposts on the edges of national parks.

“They could put up tents, have trained personnel — and be there to help people who need it.” “It's time to declare a medical emergency.” – Caroline Kitchener (@CAKitchener) June 27, 2022 At the weekend, Jean-Pierre said all options were on the table, however during a briefing Tuesday she appeared to dismiss the notion.

“And importantly, in states where abortion is now illegal, women and providers who are not federal employees – as you look at the federal lands – could be – potentially be prosecuted,” she added, noting there may be “dangerous ramifications to doing this.” Other Democrats, including Kamala Harris have suggested initiating slush funds to pay for women to travel out of state to get later term abortions where they remain legal.

Indeed, that was the instruction I received from the President of the United States,” Becerra also told reporters.
