See below how to make your voice heard today.
It’s the same old tune. The Biden Administration is releasing a rule saying one thing when in reality, the proposed rule does the exact opposite—this time to the detriment of women and children.
Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would redefine an unborn child as less than a human and reduce protections for women and children within the healthcare system. It would do so by altering how doctors comply with HIPAA, the current law that protects patient’s privacy. The administration is proposing changes in the name of personal privacy, but it would ultimately circumvent state laws, allow for the exploitation of women and children, and devalue human life.
Fortunately, we have time to push back against this proposed rule before it is finalized. Please comment TODAY so that your voice can be heard!
If a doctor suspects that a woman is being forced to get an abortion by her trafficker or that a child’s gender transition surgery was illegally performed, this proposed rule would prevent that doctor from sharing these concerns with proper authorities. The administration also wants to define the term “person” to exclude unborn babies, devaluing human life when we know that a child has a beating heart by at least week 6 and can feel pain by at least week 15. Once again, the administration is finding ways to insist that an unborn child is “just a fetus” and not a full person deserving human rights.
All of these changes bring about great concern for those who want to increase protections for women and children, rather than weaken them. The proposed changes would create safe harbors for criminal behavior and allow for more abortions and gender-transition surgeries by creating a federal avenue to sidestep state law.
You can help stop this proposed rule from being finalized! Help protect women and preserve the innate value of unborn life by submitting your comment to the administration no later than Friday, June 16.
