A group of Democratic lawmakers from Texas and pro-abortion advocacy groups called on President Joe Biden to do more to protect abortion access.

At a press conference outside the Texas Democratic Party convention, officials touted a letter signed by over 50 U.S. representatives, Texas state senators and representatives, and pro-abortion advocacy groups. The letter claims that the Biden administration could use five legal methods to override Texas state laws that ban almost all abortions.

The letter’s focus was urging the administration to declare a public health emergency to protect telehealth medication abortions.

Even before the overturn of Roe v. Wade last month, Texas and 18 other states had laws prohibiting medication abortions through telehealth, according to the Guttmacher Institute. In Texas, “medication abortions” were banned beginning after seven weeks of pregnancy, and the patient must be in the physical presence of the person writing the prescription.

The letter from the group of lawmakers and advocacy groups also called for the Biden administration to: establish a program for providers who are federal employees or contractors to volunteer to provide telehealth abortions; use its “federal supremacy” to override Texas law that bans the use of FDA-approved medication abortion; and protect providers in and outside of Texas from being sued.

Greg Casar, the Democratic candidate for the 35th Congressional District, led the press conference Saturday at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center.

“President Biden can provide a huge amount of support by making sure that you can see a health care provider, call them by phone, talk to them by telehealth, and then have medication abortion sent by mail into the state from a state where abortion is currently not banned,” Casar said.

“While we know that there are many Texans who will be forced to travel out of state, we know most working-class Texans are not able to take multiple days off work and travel the hundreds of miles necessary to access their basic right,” Casar said. “I think it’s up to the Biden administration to challenge those unconstitutional laws and protect those providers who are sending federally approved medication by federal mail.”

The president has taken some action attempting to protect abortion access. Biden issued an executive order on July 8 to protect access to medication abortion and emergency contraception, “protect patient privacy,” launch “public education efforts,” and shield those seeking and providing abortion services from potential penalties, among other measures.

Biden publicly stated he is considering declaring a public health emergency related to abortion access.

The administration also issued guidance to hospitals last week, saying federal regulations require medical providers and physicians to provide abortions if necessary to save a woman’s life.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against the administration’s guidance, saying it would turn “every emergency room in the country into a walk-in abortion clinic.”

Texas’ “trigger law,” which is set to go into effect 30 days after an official Supreme Court judgment overturns Roe v. Wade, includes an exception for allowing for an abortion if a licensed physician determines that the woman’s life is threatened by continuing with the pregnancy.

“I will ensure that President Biden will be forced to comply with the Supreme Court’s important decision concerning abortion and I will not allow him to undermine and distort existing laws to fit his administration’s unlawful agenda,” said Paxton when announcing the lawsuit.
