Senators Respond To Biden Plan To Stop Grants To States That Don’t Promote Baby-Killing ⋆ Conservative Firing Line

Joe Biden is being accused of “punishing” states that decline to adopt his abortion-for-all ideology by withholding grants.

The Daily Mail says a coalition of Republican lawmakers is working to change that.

Leading the charge on a new piece of legislation that would undermine Biden’s scheming on the abortion issue is Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., who previously has pointed out that the Biden administration the “most pro-abortion White House in history.”

The problem being targeted is that, Republicans say, Biden is blocking millions of dollars in taxpayer-funded family planning grant money from going to states that fail to meet his abortion demands.

“This bill stops HHS’ discrimination against states that value the life of every child and ensure access to high quality and affordable health care,” the senator explained in the report.

Specifically, the plan requires that in funding programs under Title X of the Public Health Service Act, the Department of Health and Human Services “may not discriminate against eligible states, individuals, or other entities for refusing to counsel or refer for abortions.”

Lankford charges that under Secretary Xavier Becerra, a radically pro-abortion former California state official picked by Biden for his cabinet, the department is violating its own stated goal of protecting and strengthening “equitable access to high quality and affordable health care.”

The senator charged, “The Biden administration’s obsession with increasing the number of abortions in America is so extreme they are willing to deny needy Oklahomans healthcare access unless Oklahoma agrees to promote abortion.”

The move developed after Biden suspended $4.5 million intended for Oklahoma’s Department of Health simply because the state agency would not refer residents for abortion.

The Mail explained the issue: “The senator said the state has an ‘obligation’ to abide by laws, and therefore it is ‘absurd’ that the administration would enact this punishment on Oklahoma’s health department for following federal statute – which ‘explicitly forbids’ using federal funds to refer for abortions.”

Lankford said residents in his state rely on the state’s family planning program, which includes cancer screening, pregnancy prevention. breast exams and depression screenings.

Sens. Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., Bill Hagerty, R-Tenn., and Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., joined Lankford in supporting the legislation.

IMPORTANT NOTE: To their horror, America’s ruling elites failed to knock out Donald Trump during his four years as president via the fabricated Trump-Russia collusion scandal – conceived and funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign, as the Durham report proves – or through two circus-like impeachment trials. Later came “January 6,” a demonstration-turned-riot by Trump supporters who passionately believed, with good reason, that the recent election – and therefore their country – had just been stolen from them. Members of Congress now want to constitutionally bar Trump from again seeking public office for having instigated “an armed insurrection” (no protester was armed) against America.

Then in March, Trump was indicted in New York on 34 counts of falsifying business records, and in June, still more indictments were filed against Trump – 37 federal criminal charges related to his handling of classified documents. Honest legal experts not in league with the Biden administration openly classify these indictments as somewhere between frivolous and idiotic, not to mention grotesquely politically motivated.

The Deep State’s never-ending persecution of Donald Trump, as well as the incredible back story of the totalitarian agenda Trump’s persecutors are attempting to implement in America and why Trump represents a mortal threat to their nefarious designs – is the focus of the blockbuster July issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE PERSECUTION OF DONALD TRUMP: Why the ruling elites loathe – and fear – the 45th president.”
