USA TODAY -- “We are deeply committed to making sure everyone has access to care – including reproductive health care – regardless of income, race, zip code, health insurance status or immigration status,” Biden said in a joint statement with Vice President Kamala Harris recognizing the Roe v. Wade anniversary.

Biden’s emphasis is appropriate, said Amanda Roberti, a Political Science professor at San Francisco State University who studies reproductive justice issues.

“When we look at the communities that are most affected by restrictive reproductive policies, you’re talking about the most marginalized communities,” she said.
