The president's perverting the will of Congress

A pro-lifer says the Biden administration is working an angle to hijack a new law.

Last December, to ensure that pregnant women have rights on the job, Congress passed the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA). It requires that employers accommodate an employee's pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions. Biden signed it a couple of days later, and the bill went into force on June 27, 2023.

But now, the Biden administration wants a rule change to make sure businesses – including pro-life and Christian employers who oppose abortion – include abortion in the pregnancy-related medical conditions.

Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League says that is not the intent of Congress.

"We've seen this again and again and again," he laments. "Employers will coerce women into getting abortions because they don't want to have to train somebody else or they don't want to have them off of the rolls for any period of time. Now Joe Biden's trying to exploit that and make it about abortion."

Scheidler calls that "unconscionable."

"This is a measure that's meant to make American families stronger, and Joe Biden's using it to make American families weaker," the pro-lifer submits.

So as public comment is open on the issue, Scheidler encourages people to act.

"A lot of people are just sort of asleep when it comes to the abortion issue," he observes. "They think, Well, Roe v. Wade's been overturned. What can the president really do? Well, the president can abuse executive orders and other rule changes to pervert the will of Congress in order to advance his abortion agenda, do an end run around the will of the people to support his radical abortion agenda."

Meanwhile, the president has also weaponized the FBI against peaceful pro-life sidewalk counselors like Mark Houck – more than 25 of them so far.
