(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) President Joe Biden is considering the release of pro-abortion executive orders as the country awaits the Supreme Court’s decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which according to the recent leak of Justice Alito’s draft opinion would overturn Roe v. Wade.

In an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, Sleepy Joe suggested that “we’re looking at [executive orders] right now.”

Biden also predicted a “mini revolution” if the Dobbs decision is anything like Alito’s draft.

“It’s clear that if, in fact, the decision comes down the way it does and these states impose the limitations they’re talking about, it’s going to cause a mini revolution and they’re going to vote a lot of these folks out of office,” Biden said.

But while the White House remains publicly non-committal—press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters last week that she didn’t have “anything to preview or to announce or to lay out at this time”—Democrat senators have written a letter to Sleepy Joe to encourage executive action, according to Axios.

In the letter, the senators—led by Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Patty Murray, D-Wash.— wildly claimed that “anti-abortion violence is on the rise” and demanded the president exercise his “unique power to marshal the resources of the entire federal government to respond.”

“The dramatic escalation of attacks on abortion access—spearheaded by right-wing justices, lawmakers, and activists—demands comprehensive and creative strategies from every corner of the federal government,” the senators wrote.

Among their recommendations were federally subsidized “medication abortions,” vouchers for women traveling in order to procure an abortion, and even the provision of abortions on federal property in states that have outlawed the procedure.

Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life, attacked the president’s plan in comments to the Washington Free Beacon.

“President Biden’s desire to issue an executive order to keep abortion legal in those states directly contradicts the Court’s ruling and the will of the people in those states,” Tobias said.
