Biden Considers Declaring Abortion Access “A Public Health Emergency”

Biden Considers Declaring Abortion Access “A Public Health Emergency”

Biden told reporters that he’s consulting staff on ‘whether I have the authority’ to call a public health emergency and what impact it would make.

Many valuable lessons can be learned about the global response to the novel coronavirus, which morphed into continuing covid pandemic inanity that is causing continuing harm to this nation.

Unfortunately, Biden has learned all the wrong ones. For example, using the declaration of a “public health emergency” to push forward an unpopular agenda because of political pressure.

U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday said he has asked his administration to consider whether he has authority to declare an abortion-related public health emergency after the Supreme Court overturned the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide.

The comments come after Biden on Friday signed an executive order to ease access to services to terminate pregnancies. read more

Biden was on his way to a bike ride near his residence in Delaware when he stopped to speak to reporters, who asked if he was considering declaring a public health emergency regarding abortion access. The president responded that he was asking his staff to see “whether I have the authority” and what the impacts would be.

I am no constitutional scholar. However, my work involves safety as it relates to infectious disease, which is the thing that is supposed to be tackled using declarations. The last time I checked, pregnancy is not contagious and not caused by a pathogen.

Fortunately, there seems to be at least one person in the Biden White House who isn’t a complete lunatic.

The president’s comments come after Jen Klein, executive director of the White House Gender Policy Council, appeared to throw cold water on the idea of a public health emergency related to abortion access earlier in the week.

“When we looked at the public health emergency, we learned a couple of things. One is that it doesn’t free very many resources. It’s what’s in a public health emergency fund, and there’s very little money, tens of thousands of dollars in it. So that didn’t seem like a great option. And it also doesn’t release significant amount of legal authority,” Klein said at a White House press briefing on Friday.

Biden suggests women keep on protesting.

As for his message to the thousands of people who gathered outside the White House on Saturday, pressuring him to do more to protect abortion rights, he said, “Keep protesting. Keep making your point. It’s critically important.”

“We can do a lot of things to accommodate the rights of women. In the meantime, fundamentally, the only way to change this is to have a national law that reinstates Roe v Wade,” he said.

Meanwhile, Biden’s approval rating has crashed to just 30%, its lowest mark yet.

The Civiqs Poll’s daily tracking survey of registered voters found less than a third of Americans giving the thumbs-up to Biden’s on-the-job performance — and a whopping 57% disapproving.

“Joe Biden’s presidency is sinking from a thousand holes in the boat,” said GOP consultant Ryan Girdusky.

The poll, released Friday, found Biden deep underwater with voters in every age bracket, every educational level, and both genders. Every one of those groups showed approval rates under 40%, with the youngest voters, age 18 to 34, among the most dissatisfied at a dismal 21%.

In only two states out of 50, deep-blue Hawaii and Vermont, do Biden’s supporters outnumber his detractors.

I suspect Hawaii’s and Vermont’s numbers will be underwater shortly.

ridiculous. He is not a dictator and should be impeached.

    I don’t wish for ‘devout’ Catholic Joe Biden to accidentally stumble into a wood chipper, but if it happened, I would not be upset.

    Closing down border wall and pipeline construction at a whim. Where is that in the Constitution?

    He is a Democrat, and therefore thinks he is a dictator.

Brandon won’t rest until every American of every gender is wearing an abortion mask and has had an abortion. That should cover it for 2024.

They could propose a bipartisan 15 week+medical and health necessity abortion protection bill tomorrow and it would probably pass next session, as 1st trimester abortion rights have broad public support.

But they won’t.

    Not as broad as you think, and would result in every Republican voting for it losing their next election as people stayed home.

      healthguyfsu in reply to gospace. | July 11, 2022 at 10:07 am

      Not true….most purple district Republicans would gain ground in their districts by voting for it.

      That’s probably why they don’t want to do it because it will give them more credit and they need to unseat for any chance at legislative majories in the near future.

    stevewhitemd in reply to Sian. | July 11, 2022 at 11:12 am

    That would be the Mississippi law at a national level. Even the Pubs in that state knew that first trimester abortion, at this time, had some significant support. So they rolled the boulder up hill as far as they could.

    You could proposed the Mississippi law in Congress — call it the “America loves it some European Aboration Law Act” (to be cited as the “American European Aboration Act, AEAA), and dare the Democrats to argue against it.

      Ironclaw in reply to stevewhitemd. | July 12, 2022 at 5:23 am

      That law had one real purpose and that was to get Roe overturned. It’s usefulness is gone, now a real ban can go in it’s place.

    Ironclaw in reply to Sian. | July 12, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Think again. I would never vote for a politician supporting baby murder, nor would any decent person I know. You must be thinking we are all amoral, shitbags like the communists are. I don’t want one single red cent I’ve paid in taxes to go toward murdering babies.

      Sian in reply to Ironclaw. | July 12, 2022 at 7:13 am

      They already got 14 to vote for gun control. They’re either in safe districts where they’ll never be voted out, or they’re retiring and don’t care. Convincing 10 of those to vote for 1st tri abortion that’s arguably already protected under the 9th’s common-law origins of ‘unenumerated protections’ wouldn’t be a hard get.
      Yet they don’t even try.

“The last time I checked, pregnancy is not contagious and not caused by a pathogen.”

If Democrats get their way pregnancy will be a contagious and the identified carrier of the contagion will be men.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Whitewall. | July 11, 2022 at 9:39 am

    Pregnancy will be declared a sexually transmitted disease.

    Look. I am NOT ani-abortion and find this idea so wrong for so many reasons.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Whitewall. | July 11, 2022 at 10:09 am

    Ahem…non-birthing persons…have to carve out space to dog whistle to the trans community

    MarkSmith in reply to Whitewall. | July 11, 2022 at 12:08 pm

    I the democrat world pregnancy is contagious. That beside, it is not about Healthcare, it is about their fear of Religion.

I believe the White House freak-out is over limiting Federalism, not abortion.

    CommoChief in reply to Oracle. | July 11, 2022 at 12:00 pm

    Yes. Exactly!

    We can’t have those pesky Red State rubes setting abortion policies that match the will of that States voters and based upon the culture and history of that State. Federalism, by its nature, reduces the stakes at the national political band policy level. Without shrieking that X policy would have Y result, women and minorities hit hardest by the fringe extremist policy of X, the d/prog would need to win based on govt performance; inflation, gas prices, food price, mortgage rates, botched Afghan withdrawal, selling the SPR to China, over regulation and foolish bureaucrats who shut down baby formula plant…..

    Whitewall in reply to Oracle. | July 11, 2022 at 12:25 pm

    Federalism is an existential threat to most of Washington. Both parties would fight it overtly and covertly.

      CommoChief in reply to Whitewall. | July 11, 2022 at 5:04 pm

      Maybe not. Even a rino like Paul Ryan wanted to block grant a good deal of federal program spending back to the States.

      Frankly that may be the way forward. Dissolve the 80+ federal poverty /assistance programs, set min and max thresholds and send the $ to the States. The States get flexibility and the Feds pocket the savings in administrative costs, salaries, leases for office space and so on.

      If CA decides to include illegal immigrants in their programs but other States restrict participation to Citizens and legal residents that’s fine but the amounts sent are based on lawful resident population.

I don’t know every President’s record in detail, but I think I am not going too far out on a limb when I say that Biden is the worst President in the last 100 years. Possibly ever. Obama should thank 10% Joe for taking the title away from him.

It seems like everything is an emergency nowadays for everything, except for real emergencies.

America has a Delaware Doosh mental health emergency.

Last I checked he does not have the authority, only Congress does. Regardless, SCOTUS – an equal branch – has spoken, it’s up to the states.

This petulant child empty suit cretin needs to go away…sooner rather than later.

Mystery in sex and conception, lack of human dignity and agency, a deplorable commodity, perhaps a witch, or a warlock. Restricting human rites is a public health emergency.

Biden is a senile fool, but where is Kamala Harris? She is the first female VP and is a leftist from CA to boot. She should be the primary evangelist for abortion in the USA. Why isn’t she holding massive Trump-style rallies every day she isn’t breaking Senate ties? I haven’t heard about her even doing one. Why isn’t she bringing a gaggle of abortion doctors to every rally and giving out free abortions funded by big money donors? In every State where abortion is legal, she should be performing thousands of abortions at every rally, every day. In States where it is not, she should have a legion of buses to bring women to other States, or into ships that go outside state waters. She should show her commitment to the cause by helping women get abortions directly and not just running word salads. She should be shouting her own abortions. She should be running a National Midterm campaign on the issue of abortion and making sure everyone hears it. What is she doing? It seems to me – nothing.

Maybe Kamala Harris is doing nothing because she secretly wants the Midterms to go so badly that the Democrats will force Biden to resign.

Hmmm…..what happened to The Shepherd Boy and The Wolf.

Real American | July 11, 2022 at 12:16 pm

Democrats look around and don’t see a mountain of dead babies and think that constitutes an emergency. Abortion fanatics are sick.

    “Declaring Abortion Access “A Public Health Emergency”
    I know you think that “public health emergency” is the password to some backdoor in the constitution, Joe… but it isn’t.

Biden is running out of distraction squirrels and the few he has left are wandering around bouncing off mushrooms.

His entire administration lives in a fantasy world and the press is their enabler.

iconotastic | July 11, 2022 at 1:26 pm

IANAL (obviously) but under what authority does the federal government have the power to make edicts about state laws? The SCOTUS couldn’t find a right to an abortion in the 14th.

    Milhouse in reply to iconotastic. | July 12, 2022 at 12:14 am

    Well, any valid federal law automatically overrides state law. (Of course an invalid law doesn’t do anything, because it isn’t a law at all.)

    But that’s irrelevant here, because he isn’t claiming that a medical emergency would do anything about the state laws. He’s hoping it can give him some sort of powers and resources to help people get around those laws. And he’s finding that it can do very little.

I thought the Left would be happy to have more babies for gay men to adopt.

Unless there’s video I don’t believe for a second that Biden asked anybody anything.

    henrybowman in reply to randian. | July 11, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Yeah. The mere thought that Biden ever asks anybody whether he had the authority to do whatever he feels like doing begs suspension of disbelief.

Emergency baby murder, and I thought I heard it all. Just when I thought the communists couldn’t get more sickening.

Ya, go ahead and declare abortion a public health emergency. Let’s destroy every vestige of credibility of the public health agencies. Show them up to be the tyrannical buffoons they yearn to be.
