Biden’s Whole-of-Government Plan Designed to Protect Abortion on Demand

WASHINGTON – On Friday, Xavier Becerra, secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced actions calculated to circumvent a Texas law (SB 8) designed to protect unborn children whose hearts have begun to beat.

Becerra’s actions are in line with President Joe Biden’s demand for whole-of-government action in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision not to block implementation of SB 8. The High Court’s decision allows the lower courts to examine the unique legal questions presented by the law—a decision consistent with proper legal procedures involving issues presented to the Supreme Court.

“Joe Biden’s whole-of-government action on SB 8 shows just how deeply this administration is in league with the abortion industry,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “In no other area, from Kabul to crime prevention, has Joe Biden shown such dedication.”

Besides providing $10 million to abortionists and abortion facilities impacted by SB 8, HHS’s actions also raise questions about the government potentially forcing doctors and providers opposed to abortion to provide them under the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA).

“Xavier Becerra has proven his loyalty to the abortion industry time and again, so it is not surprising that he is using the full weight of Health and Human Services to find ways to support abortion on demand and circumvent state law,” said Tobias.
