Last abortion for five states?
There are things that the President can do, and there are things that Democratic governors in states with trigger laws can do.
The President, as Commander-in-Chief, can order that all hospitals on federal military bases be opened up to provide civilian access to abortions, as well as use of any other federal properties, even in red states. Clinics could be allowed in national parks; abortion pills could be dispensed at post offices. C’mon, Joe, be creative, be bold, be aggressive.
Democratic governors in states where gerrymandered Republican legislatures have enacted (or preserved very old) trigger laws could simply announce that they will issue pardons for any woman or doctor or clinic employee convicted under any anti-abortion law.
