The law is a minor obstacle for Joe Biden’s lawless Presidency.
He’s pushing it aside to carry out one major Democrat priority.
And a top Republican put Joe Biden on notice over this illegal scheme.
Democrats are melting down after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, putting the fight over abortion in the hands of legislatures.
As the late, great Rush Limbaugh once said, abortion is a holy “sacrament of the religion of liberalism.”
Losing court protection for the abortion-on-demand industry is causing Democrats to make insane demands to President Joe Biden.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) proposed setting up abortion tents on the edge of National Parks in red states in that could restrict it.
Faced with a furious Democrat base, Biden cast aside federal law to run an end around on the Supreme Court’s decision.
The Biden regime submitted an interim final rule that paves the way for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide abortion counseling and abortions to veterans covered by the department.
“Access to medically necessary abortions is essential for preserving the life and health of Veterans and VA beneficiaries,” a statement from the VA said.
The VA has been rocked by scandal over its failure to provide quality healthcare to veterans.
After being unable to fulfill its primary mission, it’s engaging in left-wing political activism at the behest of the Biden regime.
This is blatantly illegal under the federal law known as the Hyde Amendment, which makes it illegal to use federal money for abortion except in the cases of rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is threatened.
Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), one of the leading conservatives in Congress, serves on the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.
He told The Daily Caller that Biden’s action was a flagrant violation of federal law.
“The Biden Administration’s brazen disregard for the rule of law knows no bounds,” Roy told The Daily Caller. “Federal law, passed by elected representatives, prohibits the VA from providing abortions in clear, unambiguous language.”
“The administration doesn’t care — and is carrying out one of the most authoritarian, autocratic agendas in history. It requires a proportional response,” Roy added.
Federal law is an inconvenience for the Biden regime’s attempt to placate the pro-abortion fanatics that make up the Democrat Party.
Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) slammed the move as “unconscionable” as a decorated veteran of the Navy.
“It is unconscionable that Secretary McDonough is steamrolling ahead with the illegal rule allowing the VA to provide abortion services,” Clyde said. “As a veteran, I’m appalled that the VA is advancing the Left’s murderous crusade against the unborn instead of solely focusing on providing timely, high-quality care to our nation’s veterans. Congress must immediately act to block this vile overreach in order to prevent taxpayer-funded abortions and protect the sanctity of life.”
Congressional Republicans are promising oversight to make sure that the Biden regime follows the Hyde Amendment.
Joe Biden’s regime is casting aside the law to advance his party’s extreme abortion-on-demand agenda.
