AUDIO: Rachel N. Morrison on Biden Administration and Taxpayer-Funded Abortion

November 11, 2021 | Heartland Daily Podcast

On November 11, 2021, EPPC Policy Analyst Rachel N. Morrison joined the Heartland Daily Podcast to discuss the Biden administration’s proposed changes to the Title X family-planning program.

The Biden administration is in the process of making radical changes to the federal government’s family planning program, known as Title X. Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Federation, and the Guttmacher Institute have been trying to undo Trump administration efforts to prohibit tax dollars from funding abortions, a statutory prohibition.

Instead of following the traditional rule making process, Secretary Xavier Becerra and the Department of Health and Human Services finalized changes within a matter of months all while limiting public comment to 30 days. The rule making process has long been supported by Democrat and Republican administrations. Its purpose is to create fairness and promote sound public policy at the executive level. Rachel Morrison, attorney and policy analyst at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, discusses how her scheduled hearing was cancelled. She received an automated email stating “the rule is no longer under review.”   Morrison discusses why this sets a dangerous precedent for all Americans and why they need to be concerned about Secretary Becerra’s background as California’s former Attorney General. She understands prosecutions, not medical science.

Overturning Roe Would Be the Easy Part for the Pro-Life Movement

Henry Olsen

Overturning Roe will not suddenly make abortion illegal throughout the country. Instead, it will simply return the abortion question to the political process. That means public opinion, which Roe has peremptorily suppressed for almost 50 years, will rule the roost. And it is decidedly mixed.

Pro-Abortion Attorney Fudges Facts on International Abortion

Alexandra DeSanctis

Nearly every European country that allows abortion at all limits it to the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, and a handful allow it until 15 weeks. They do not, as one of the attorneys arguing against Mississippi’s ban on abortion after 15 weeks suggested, allow abortion after that point for “broad social reasons.”

Women Do Not ‘Rely’ on Abortion

Erika Bachiochi

Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey hang by the thin thread of “reliance.” Chip away at Casey’s assertion that women rely on abortion for their participation in economic and social life, and there is not much left of the cases that have distorted constitutional interpretation and held U.S. politics hostage for nearly 50 years.
