The Biden Administration Department of Health and Human Services announced it will reverse the Trump Administration’s “Protect Life” rule for receiving federal family planning aid, calling it “not in the best interest of public health.” The rule barred the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions and did not require “no kill” family assistance organizations to refer patients to abortion providers.
Secretary Xavier Becerra explained that “the entities the Trump rule protected are not entitled to the consideration he mandated. Fetuses have no rights which the government is obligated to respect. The assertion that they are unborn people is debatable. Since Roe v. Wade, courts have upheld the position that their existence can be terminated at any time the mother opts to do so.”
