How much damage can the Biden administration do in four years? That’s an important question to be answered. The Biden U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) just issued guidance to nearly 60,000 retail pharmacies indicating that as recipients of federal financial assistance, they are obligated to supply prescribed medications for abortions.

Pharmacies will risk breaking civil rights laws if they refuse to fill prescriptions for medication used in abortions. This is a response to the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey in the case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra said in a press release, “We are committed to ensuring that everyone can access health care, free of discrimination,” and that “includes access to prescription medications for reproductive health and other types of care.”
The release from HHS also boasted about all of the ways it is working on a pro-abortion agenda. They are putting $3 million (taxpayer dollars) to fund training and assistance to a network of Title X family planning providers. They are meeting with pro-abortion governors and state attorney generals to develop state-by-state abortion access.
And unveiled this month a new HHS website: Reproductive Rights.gov. This site directs women, even minors, to resources they can get to obtain an abortion.
For those who are under 18, the website directs them to another site to help them get a judicial bypass to an abortion without parental notification or consent.
You might want to read that last sentence again.
“The Court abandoned 50 years of precedent and took away the constitutional right to abortion, preventing women all over the country from being able to make critical decisions about our bodies, our health, and our futures,” Assistant Attorney General Vanita Gupta said in a statement provided by the DOJ. “The Justice Department is committed to protecting access to reproductive services.”
Thank you, Joe…
