March is Women’s History Month, and we are excited to celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments and successes of women. So many women—like Susan B. Anthony and Justice Amy Coney Barrett—have fought for the right to vote, to excel in their fields, to overcome odds, to win national championships and to protect the innocence of the unborn.
However, President Joe Biden this month paints a very different picture of women’s rights in our country in his proclamation on Women’s History Month. He states that the Dobbs decision is a systematic barrier to equal opportunity and recommits to defending abortion, including dangerous chemical abortion pills.
The proclamation’s regrettable call to action for Congress is “to pass a federal law restoring the protections of Roe v. Wade so all women in every State have the right to choose.”
And, Congress quickly responded to the President’s call. Forty-eight Senators introduced the so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act,” which would expand abortion until birth for any reason were it to pass.
Just this past week, President Biden also released his annual budget, which again commits his administration to the destruction of life and calls on Congress to pass this legislation that allows for abortion on demand until birth. Here are a few of the more concerning highlights from his budget we wanted to share with you:
❌Commits to continue fighting for abortions and gender affirming care at Veterans’ Administration clinics
❌Increases funding for the mis-guided United Nations Population Fund
❌Increases funding to Planned Parenthood through Title X funding
❌Touts his two Executive Orders and Presidential Memorandum that expand access to chemical abortions, undermine the conscience rights of medical doctors, and expand access for those traveling out of state for abortions to circumvent their own state laws
It is still unclear whether the administration recognizes what defines a woman as they set out to undermine women’s sports and health care, at the same time as they advance radical gender ideology in our schools.
But, one thing is clear. The Biden administration and the Left have made abortion for any reason, at any time the ONE thing that defines a woman’s ability to succeed. We wholeheartedly disagree.
Women deserve better.
Women have God-given unique characteristics that should be celebrated this month, not undermined by a radical mantra from the Left that has refused to define a woman as anything but a biological woman. This has left women vulnerable in sports competitions, the prison system and in schools as they are forced to embrace biological men as a female peer.
Together, we will continue to celebrate the great achievements that have been made by women regardless of what a small minority promotes. This month, be sure to celebrate the great accomplishments of the moms, daughters, and sisters in your own life!
