Showing his allegiance to all things abortion, President Obama is demanding that organizations helping refugees refer for abortion.
Insert standoff here.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) is advancing federal regulations that require federally funded organization caring for illegal alien minors who are in the United States without their parents (Unaccompanied Children or UC) and who may have been sexually abused access to “emergency contraception” services.
“Emergency contraception” includes abortion-inducing drugs.
These care providers currently include Catholic and other faith-based organizations that oppose abortion, according to the Center for Family and Human Rights or C-FAM, a Catholic advocacy group.
The Interim Final Rule was published in the Federal Register on Dec. 24, 2014, and was open to public comments until today, Feb. 23, 2015. Providers must comply with the rule by June 24, 2015, according to the Federal Register.
In 2011, the Obama administration cut funding for the U.S. bishops’ campaign against human trafficking for refusing to refer for
contraception and abortion. So they’re quite willing to pull the trigger on this kind of thing.
The new rules would also require care provider facilities to train their staff in “LGBTQI” and identifying “transgender and intersex” unaccompanied children. I’d suggest looking for garish makeup, wigs, baritones, and back hair but I’m no expert.
