President Joseph Biden, a self-professed Catholic, overrides both the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Congress, by signing an executive order to mandate that the bloodbath of innocent infants in the womb continues to be allowed in every state.
After the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the Dobbs case, the decision regarding legalization of the killing of the unborn went back to how it was more than 50 years ago, namely that each state decided the matter for itself. This allows residents of each state to have a stronger voice and influence over the decision of each state.
Similar to the action of a dictator, this action of the U.S. executive branch of government undermines the authority of each state on the matter, and goes completely against the brilliant set-up of the country’s three branches of government—legislative, executive and judicial—established by our Founding Fathers in the U.S. Constitution.
Not to mention Biden’s complete disregard for the most basic tenet of Catholic teaching—Christ’s teaching—to protect the most vulnerable of human life.
CNA—Kate Yoder—President Joe Biden will sign an executive order Friday aimed at protecting access to killing infants in the womb, in response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the case that legalized abortion in 1973.
President Biden has made clear that the only way to secure a woman’s “right” to choose to kill her unborn baby is for Congress to restore the protections of Roe as federal law, according to a July 8 White House fact sheet. “Until then, he has committed to doing everything in his power to defend reproductive rights and protect access to safe and legal abortion.”
To accomplish this, he will sign an “Executive Order Protecting Access to Reproductive Health Care Services.”
Obviously, “reproductive health care” (the latest buzzword for abortion) sounds a lot more acceptable than the truth and reality of “killing an innocent infant in the womb”
The order will focus on four general areas: access to “reproductive health care services,” including abortion and contraception; patients’ privacy and access to information; the security of patients, providers, and clinics; and the coordination of federal efforts to protect “reproductive rights and access to health care.”
National pro-life leaders expressed concern about the order, particularly its impact on abortion drugs.
“It is tragic that this administration is using its power to push for more and more painful abortions which harm women and take innocent lives,” March for Life President Jeanne Mancini said in a statement. “Of particular concern is the administration’s effort to push chemical abortion which carries significant health risks to women, even more than surgical abortion.”
Likewise, the president of Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America, Marjorie Dannenefelser, stressed that “President Biden has once again caved to the extreme abortion lobby, determined to put the full weight of the federal government behind promoting abortion.”
“Democrats will stop at nothing to promote their agenda of abortion on demand, up until the moment of birth, paid for by the taxpayers – including dangerous mail-order abortion drugs — even if it means gutting the long-standing filibuster, increasing the size of the Supreme Court, or putting abortionists in tents in national parks,” she said in a statement.
Under safeguarding “access to reproductive health,” Biden directed the Secretary of Health and Human Services to protect “medication” abortion and contraception, ensure emergency medical care particularly for pregnant woman, launch public education efforts, and convene public lawyers.
“Such representation could include protecting the right to travel out of state to seek medical care,” the fact sheet reads.
Under protecting patient privacy, the order promises to protection consumers against privacy violations and deceptive practices as well as protect sensitive health information.
The administration also will protect patients seeking abortion as well as providers and clinics providing abortion, including “mobile clinics, which have been deployed to borders to offer care for out-of-state patients,” according to the fact sheet.
Biden, who often mentions that he is a Catholic, nonetheless has repeatedly supported abortion over many years — in sharp contrast with Catholic teaching—Christ’s teaching— that human life must be respected and protected from the moment of conception.
