Biden admin hijacks pregnant-workers law to impose illegal abortion mandate

Published on

On Monday, the Biden administration made a bold move by announcing proposed regulations for implementing the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s proposed rule is a game-changer that takes the bipartisan law, which does not address abortion, to a whole new level. It’s a bold move that could potentially impact virtually every employer in the country, even those whose religious beliefs dictate that life begins at conception.

The objective of the Congress was to provide assistance to pregnant employees, not to compel employers to facilitate abortions. The Biden administration is attempting to transform a bipartisan law that does not even mention abortion into a mandate requiring every employer in the United States to provide “reasonable accommodations” for their employees’ elective abortions. This administration’s unlawful proposal violates state laws protecting the unborn and employers’ pro-life and religious beliefs. The administration lacks the legal authority to insert an abortion mandate into a transformative pro-life and pro-woman law. Alliance Defending Freedom stands prepared to continue defending unborn lives and to oppose this egregious federal overreach.

The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act requires every employer in America to “reasonably accommodate” a worker’s “pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.” The administration is now proposing that “related medical conditions” include “termination of pregnancy, including via . . . abortion.” This new mandate would require employers with more than 15 employees to create “reasonable accommodations” for their workers’ abortions, even if doing so violates their pro-life or religious beliefs.

The proposed rule will be formally published Friday, kicking off a 60-day period for pro-life and religious Americans to submit public comments to the administration.
