    Critics blasted White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre after she claimed that the United States Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was an "unconstitutional action."

    On Wednesday, Jean-Pierre reiterated President Joe Biden's support for abortion rights access after Kansas voters rejected a referendum that would have removed the right to abortion from the state's constitution.

    "There has been an urgency from this president from day one, when the Supreme Court made this extreme decision to take away a constitutional right, it was an unconstitutional action by them," Jean-Pierre said during a White House press briefing.

    Roe created "a right that was around for almost 50 years, a right that women had to make a decision on their bodies and how they want to start their families," she added.

    In reaction to her comments, columnist David Marcus tweeted, "After well over a decade of wokeness in our universities we now have a generation of intelligent, well educated progressives who have never had their holy views challenged. And boy does it show."

    "Tell me you don't understand what the Supreme Court does without saying you don't understand what the Supreme Court does..." comedian Tim Young added.

    "Is there no one in this entire administration who knows how government works?" columnist Derek Hunter.

    Biden signed an executive order Wednesday calling on Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to aid women crossing state lines to obtain abortions.

    "[Republicans] don't have a clue about the power of American women," the president said on Wednesday before he signed the order. "Last night in Kansas they found out."

    Biden's order, a response to leftist panic following the overturn of Roe v. Wade, includes a provision that asks Becerra to invite states that are treating patients who have crossed state lines for abortions to apply for Medicaid waivers.

    "In furtherance of the policy set forth in section 1 of this order, the Secretary of HHS shall consider actions to advance access to reproductive healthcare services, including, to the extent permitted by Federal law, through Medicaid for patients traveling across State lines for medical care," the order said.

    Medicaid is taxpayer-funded, and the Hyde Amendment prohibits the use of taxpayer funds for abortions. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Daily Wire on this point.

    Mary Margaret Olohan contributed to this report.

With Roe v Wade (originated in 1973) overturned by the US Supreme Court, thereby allowing decisions on abortion legislation completely returned to the states: Where do you find your position on such a "Life and Death" issue for the American People?
  Yes, I approve of the US Supreme Court's decision to reinstate this "medical" issue back to the states' legislative responsibility to regulate.
  No, I believe that every woman should have complete access to abortion on demand.
  This issue is far beyond my intellectual capacity to understand.

With respect to the leaked opinion not yet written for ratification regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's revisiting the original decision of Roe v Wade, whence now nonstop protests have erupted in neighborhoods where U.S. Supreme Court justices live, exhibiting the firm intent to intimidate these officers of the highest court in the land: What action should the federal authorities take?
  Do nothing ... Protests are a fixture of a free society.
  Enforce the law ... Federal codes exist to prohibit any intimidation through the pubic harassment of federal judges, especially Supreme Court justices.
  I have no idea, however, northern Virginia School Board Members must be shielded from protests at all costs.
