Our taxes fund Medicaid, which is not allowed to be used to cover abortion except in the case of rape, incest, or the mother’s life is in danger.
Our devout Catholic president is doing everything he can to ensure women access abortion, including using taxpayer-funded Medicaid. He signed Executive Order 14076: Protecting Access to Reproductive Healthcare Services.
States have banned abortion or are on the way to banning abortion. Other states have gone all in and keep abortion legal.
Even if it means violating the Hyde Amendment, which bans using federal funds for abortion unless the mother’s life is in danger or the case of rape or incest.
The EO doesn’t cover the travel expenses to get the abortion. It covers the abortion.
Medicaid definition: “Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that provides free or low-cost health coverage to millions of Americans, including some low-income people, families and children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with disabilities. The federal government provides a portion of the funding for Medicaid and sets guidelines for the program. Medicaid programs vary from state to state.”
In Biden’s EO: “Sec. 3. Advancing the Ability to Obtain Reproductive Healthcare Services. In furtherance of the policy set forth in section 1 of this order, the Secretary of HHS shall consider actions to advance access to reproductive healthcare services, including, to the extent permitted by Federal law, through Medicaid for patients traveling across State lines for medical care.”
I have a horrible headache, but it got worse reading the lies spilled across the page to justify using taxpayer money to pay for baby murder:
There have been numerous reports of women denied health- and life-saving emergency care, as providers fearful of legal reprisal delay necessary treatment for patients until their conditions worsen to dangerous levels. There are also reports of women of reproductive age being denied prescription medication at pharmacies — including medication that is used to treat stomach ulcers, lupus, arthritis, and cancer — due to concerns that these medications, some of which can be used in medication abortions, could be used to terminate a pregnancy. Reportedly, a healthcare provider, citing a State law restricting abortion, even temporarily stopped providing emergency contraception.
The people who do this are stupid because state laws do not require them to do any of this. They “fear” legal blowback. Give me a break. It’s just as bad as making women who had miscarriages think they aborted their baby.
Anyway, no shame in this administration. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre didn’t even try to sugarcoat it:
JEAN-PIERRE: “Look, I mean just to — it’s really important what this is going to do. It’s going to help, in particular, low-income women. If you think about it, paves the way for Medicaid to pay for abortions for women having to travel out of state. Secretary Becerra will invite states to apply for Medicaid waivers to allow them to provide reproductive health care to women who live in states where abortions are banned, those he judged to be the strongest and most effective on both legal and policy grounds. That’s what the President is doing, he’s reviewing the options that he has.”
You guys, it’s so important that this EO will allow using taxpayer money to pay for abortions.
