(RightIsRight.co) – In a slew of executive orders this week, President Joe Biden managed to expand Obamacare and endorse taxpayer-funded abortions. These actions will embolden Planned Parenthood and allow federal funds to go to international NGOs that provide terminations.
Biden Rescinds the Mexico City Policy
The Mexico City Policy was first established by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. It forbids federal grants funded by US taxpayer dollars from going to organizations that support abortions in other countries. While Obama had rescinded the policy, former President Trump re-established the policy, shared here in a quote from the Daily Wire:
"President Donald Trump updated Title X to cut off any organization providing abortion services alongside family planning, effectively eliminating Planned Parenthood from the program unless it stopped doing abortions."https://t.co/DW9oF6X2Sd

However, on Thursday, January 28, Biden’s executive memorandum reversed that order. Furthermore, the memorandum reopened Title X qualifications, allowing Planned Parenthood to now accept Title X money. The abortion organization praised Biden’s latest move on Twitter:
Before the Title X gag rule was implemented, Planned Parenthood health centers served 40% of the patients in the program. The fact that Biden is taking action on this less than 2 weeks after his inauguration is HUGE.

Obamacare Opens Up Again
Another executive order opened up a special enrollment period for the healthcare marketplace, which will take place from February 15 to May 15. In addition, the order asked the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to review Trump-era policies that minimized the Affordable Care Act.
The Ebb and Flow of American Politics
The battles for nationalized healthcare and abortion rights have gone back and forth for decades as different parties control the White House and Congress. However, this time the President chose to fund abortions abroad even though a recent study done by the Knights of Columbus showed 77% of Americans do not want US tax dollars going to abortions abroad.
As Joe Biden pushes against the will of his own nation, he continues to defend his actions. He stated that these orders are “not initiating any new law,” but rather simply returning the US to a previous situation. While Biden can try and tell us the changes he wants and hopes for aren’t new, we cannot be fooled. Biden’s far-left agenda has been clear since he took office, and we must stay attentive and push back in order to protect our nation and our freedoms.
