NBC News in its report referred to the detailed order that directs the Department of Health and Human Services to "consider" allowing Medicaid funds to be used to assist people traveling between states to get abortions.
It is also mentioned in the order that HHS should ensure that health care providers comply with federal anti-discrimination laws so women receive "medically necessary care without delay."
