The Biden administration is doing everything it can to pump tax money into the abortion industry.
For years the federal government has not directly funded abortions.
But now Joe Biden’s VA is about to change that, and the Left is thrilled.
For years, the Hyde Amendment has been in effect. This amendment prohibits the federal government from directly giving money to abortions.
This was always non-controversial, as the right was pro-life, and the left’s mantra was “safe, legal, and rare” – in other words, they thought abortion should be legal, but shouldn’t be common.
But now the Left has gone to the far edge of abortion extremism. They think abortions are good, and should happen more often, and should happen later in pregnancy if possible.
They also want American taxpayers to be forced to give up their money for these abortion procedures, which would mean either getting rid of the Hyde Amendment, or just ignoring it.
For now, they’ve chosen to simply ignore it.
According to a press release from Biden’s Department of Veterans Affairs, “Last night, the Department of Veterans Affairs submitted to the Federal Register an interim final rule that will allow VA to provide access to abortion counseling and – in certain cases – abortions to pregnancy Veterans and VA beneficiaries.”
“These services will be authorized immediately after the interim final rule is published, and the rule will be available for public comment for 30 days thereafter. Once the rule is published, VA will immediately prepare to provide these services in as many locations as possible.”
America has gone from no public funding for abortions, to public funding for abortions “in as many locations as possible.”
This is what Joe Biden has done to the country.
Furthermore, the VA has created an “Abortion Services” link on their website, which contradicts their claim that this would only be for “medically necessary” abortions.
Someone who is going through a medical emergency isn’t going to take the time to go on the VA website and schedule an abortion for some time in the future. They are most likely going to be in the hospital.
The website is set up for elective abortions on demand, funded by the taxpayers.
The VA is also using this to override state laws against abortion. The press release continues, “VA is taking steps to guarantee Veterans and other VA beneficiaries abortion-related care anywhere in the country. VA employees, when working within the scope of their federal employment, may provide authorized services regardless of state restrictions.”
This is another attempt by the Biden administration to get around state laws restricting abortion and impose abortion on states that don’t want it.
And it is a clear violation of the Hyde Amendment.
The Hyde Amendment was already relatively ineffective at stopping public funding of abortion, as organizations like Planned Parenthood could just move money around and use the funds for abortion anyway.
But now the government is blatantly and openly defying a law passed by Congress.
America needs a presidential administration that will obey the law and respect the boundaries of the Constitution.
