According to Barack Obama’s department of Health and Human Service Department abortion is classified as an “emergency medical service” that MUST be made available by federally funded caregivers for the thousands of illegal alien unaccompanied minors that the Obama administration let into the US.
This rule was made under the guise of protecting “children” who have been “sexually assaulted” and are pregnant. Do you think that HHS rule makers are requiring those caregivers to report the “sexual assault” to the local police? Of course not.
This rule would force Catholic hospitals and other medical care providers who oppose abortion to either perform abortions or refer their patients to abortion mills like Planned Parenthood.
“ORR is mindful that some potential and existing grantees and contractors may have religious or moral objections to providing certain kinds of services, including referrals (for example, for emergency contraception),” the regulation said.
There is no limit to the Obama administration’s depth of depravity. The courts have repeatedly struck down these kinds of regulations that the administration tried to force on hospitals and healthcare providers under Obama care. So, as with every “progressive” sacred cow the administration ignores precedent and forges ahead.
Gee, we wonder pro-life Republican leadership in the United States Senate will do anything about this? Probably not. Frankly we doubt they’ll even say anything about it.
Most days we have trouble distinguishing between the depravity of the Obama administration and the depravity of the Republican leadership in Washington.
