Joe Biden continues to do everything in his power, legal or not, to force the pro-abortion agenda on all Americans.

And he doesn’t care who it harms.

That’s why these new Biden abortion regulations will force employers to become merchants of death.

According to a former Trump official, the Biden administration’s new federal regulations on abortion will turn pro-life legislation into guaranteed abortion-on-demand.

“Merchants of death”

Additionally, these regulations will force every employer to become part of the “machinery of death.” 

The Biden administration recently issued two controversial federal rules that would further advance the radical goals of the abortion lobby. 

The latest rule involves the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA), legislation passed last year meant to guarantee pregnant women can receive reasonable on-the-job accommodations related to “pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.” 

But the Biden administration’s rule would force businesses that employee 15 or more people to also facilitate their employees’ abortions.

Under the rule employers would be required to provide abortion-related leave, or face a federal complaint.

“This is just a brazen attempt from this administration to force abortion even within a pro-life piece of legislation,” Roger Severino, vice president for Domestic Policy at The Heritage Foundation, told “Washington Watch” guest host and former Congressman Jody Hice.

Changing the definitions 

The Biden administration’s proposed regulation seeks to help the radical pro-abortion lobby accomplish its goals by actually redefining the words of the PWFA. 

The Biden rule states the bill’s “definition of ‘pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions’ includes current pregnancy, past pregnancy, potential pregnancy, lactation, use of birth control, menstruation, infertility and fertility treatments, endometriosis, miscarriage, stillbirth, or having or choosing not to have an abortion, among other conditions.” 

It also states that “nothing in the PWFA requires or forbids an employer to pay for health insurance benefits for an abortion.”

The regulation clearly violates the intentions of the law’s authors, who assured senators the bill “could not” result in pro-abortion regulatory action. 

In fact, the legislation’s main sponsor, Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) stated emphatically; “I want to say for the record, however, that under the act, under the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, the EEOC, could not — could not — issue any regulation that requires abortion leave, nor does the act permit the EEOC to require employers to provide abortions in violation of state law.”

According to Severino, “The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act was a bill designed to protect pregnant workers. What is the opposite of pregnancy? Abortion. Yet this administration, through the EEOC’s proposed regulation, is saying that abortion is going to be a protected, enshrined right that workers will have a right to an accommodation even in pro-life states.” 

He added that the Biden regulations are “going to recruit employers as part of this machinery of death.” 

“The Biden administration is taking something that is meant to protect life, the giving of life,” pregnancy, “and flipping it and saying, no, we’re going to make it easier for them to extinguish that life,” said Severino. “Employers around the country are going to be forced to assist in abortions in violation of state law.”

A concerted effort to ignore the law and kill more babies

Since the overturn of Roe v. Wade last year, the Biden administration has turned to executive orders, regulations, and federal fiats to promote abortion. 

Biden administration officials have even publicly stated they are working to “get around” the high court’s ruling and simply ignore it.

The Biden administration has also worked to facilitate do-it-yourself chemical abortions by eliminating the need for an in-person visit to get a prescription to the deadly drugs.

“The Biden administration won’t be happy until abortion pervades every aspect of our lives, as evidenced by their attempt to sneak abortion — the ending of a new human life — into a program that is about the exact opposite: supporting the growth of a new human life,” said Students for Life Action President Kristan Hawkins in a statement.

“It doesn’t get much more backwards than that, but that’s exactly what we’ve seen time and again from this administration.”

Instead of “Build Back Better,” Hawkins continued, Biden’s slogan appears to be “Build in Abortion Wherever.”
