President Joe Biden has said a federal law would be the “fastest way” to restore abortion rights as he signed an order to safeguard abortion access.

He called a recent Supreme Court abortion ruling, which ended the nationwide right to the procedure, “an exercise in raw political power”.

It paved the way for individual US states to decide if and how to allow abortions.

Mr Biden has faced pressure to respond to the ruling with bolder action.

The presidential order, signed on Friday, is expected to have a limited impact – to mitigate some of the restrictions but not fully restore abortion rights.
