(ETH) – President Joe Biden condemned the Texas law that went into effect on Wednesday which prohibts the vast majority of abortions in the state and pledged his administration would fight to protect the constitutional right to abortion as laid out in the landmark Roe v. Wade case.

Reuters stated: “The Texas law will significantly impair women’s access to the health care they need, particularly for communities of color and individuals with low incomes,” Biden said in a statement. “And, outrageously, it deputizes private citizens to bring lawsuits against anyone who they believe has helped another person get an abortion.”

NBC News stated: “And, outrageously, it deputizes private citizens to bring lawsuits against anyone who they believe has helped another person get an abortion, which might even include family members, health care workers, front desk staff at a health care clinic, or strangers with no connection to the individual,” Biden said.

He said that his administration is “deeply committed” to protecting the constitutional right established under Roe v. Wade. He did not specify, however, how his administration plans to do that, especially for women living in Texas.

The law, which bans most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, went into effect after the Supreme Court didn’t respond to an eleventh-hour request by abortion rights advocates Monday to halt its implementation.
