Trump Takes Huge Steps Against Obamacare Birth Control Mandate and Plans Covering Abortions

Great news!

Published

on

The Trump administration has taken some major steps against Obamacare, ones that will likely have leftists and feminists alike — as if there is really a difference — all over the country pitching temper tantrums in the street.

New rules have been finalized that would cause the mandated coverage for contraceptives to be rolled back and for tighter restrictions to be placed on insurance plans that provide coverage for abortions.

If you’re pro-life, this is super good news.

Fox News reported that the Department of Health and Human Services announced the changes, which allow religious organizations, nonprofits, and small businesses to opt out of providing Obamacare’s mandated free birth control under moral objections.

HHS released a statement, saying, “The religious and moral exemptions provided by these rules apply to institutions of education, issuers, and individuals. The Departments are not extending the moral exemption to publicly traded businesses, or either exemption to government entities.”

The same day, the Trump administration also introduced rules restricting Obamacare plans that cover abortion, aiming to ensure taxpayer money isn’t used to subsidize the practice.

Opposition groups have already vowed to challenge the changes in court.

“Today’s outrageous rules by the Trump Administration show callous disregard for women’s rights, health, and autonomy,” Fatima Goss Graves, president and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center, told Politico on Wednesday.

“By taking away women’s access to no-cost birth control coverage, the rules give employers a license to discriminate against women,” Graves continued. “We will take immediate legal steps to block these unfair and discriminatory rules.”

Pro-life advocate Marjorie Dennenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, released a statement saying, “Today President Trump and HHS Secretary [Alex] Azar delivered a huge victory for conscience rights and religious liberty in America.”

“No longer will Catholic nuns who care for the elderly poor be forced by the government to provide abortion-inducing drugs in their health care plans,” she continued. “Not only that, moral objectors, such as Susan B. Anthony List, will also no longer have to pay for life-ending drugs that are antithetical to their mission and for which we have argued there is certainly no ‘compelling state interest.’”

One of the benefits of Trump’s ruling is that Christian companies will not be forced to provide contraceptive coverage for employees that might be abortive in nature, thus violating their sacredly held religious beliefs that all human beings are imagers of God from the moment of conception.

While this is massive progress in the right direction, especially in the fight against abortion, we need to remember the fight is only really just beginning. We must push forward more and more until abortion is treated as murder and made illegal.

BOMBSHELL: Judge Who Blocked Trump’s Border Wall Donated $30,000 to Obama & Dems

Hmm. Anything fishy here?

Oh, good. Another Obama judge blocking President Trump from doing things to benefit all Americans. Haywood Gilliam just found himself in a big mess, but it’s all his doing. From Washington Examiner: A federal judge who partially blocked President Trump’s plans to build a border wall along the United States-Mexico border previously donated almost $30,000 to former President Obama, other Democrats, and a political action committee. U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam, an Obama appointee confirmed in 2014, donated $6,900 to Barack Obama’s debut campaign for president and $14,500 to his reelection campaign, according to federal election records. The same records also indicate he contributed $4,500 to the Democratic National Committee in 2012 and, between 2012 and 2015, sent $3,100 to the Covington Burling LLP PAC, which supports candidates from both parties. His contributions totaled $29,000. But wait! There’s more… Gilliam made the donations, first reported by the Epoch Times, prior to serving as a U.S. District judge. He had said during his confirmation hearing that he “would base my decisions solely on the facts of each case and the applicable precedent, without regard to any political ideology or motivation,” and that “any personal views would not interfere in any way with my ability to neutrally apply the law.” Patrick Shanahan will most likely become the next Secretary of Defense after he was recently nominated to the post by President Trump. Shanahan is currently the acting SecDef, having filled the shoes of James “Mad Dog” Mattis. Shanahan made clear that hundreds of miles of wall have been contracted to be built on America’s southern border with Mexico. Democrat hearts are breaking across the country. So @ActingSecDef just told Congress that 256 new miles of Trump’s Wall is now funded to be built, at the rate of half a mile every…

WATCH: CNN Says Stuttering Pelosi Tweet Is A ‘Smear,’ But Nancy’s Attacks On POTUS Are Valid

Double standard, much??

When President Trump sends a tweet of Speaker Pelosi stuttering, it’s a “smear.” When Pelosi and Democrats say 45 is mentally unfit for office, it’s no big deal. That’s how things work in Liberalville. Up is down and nothing makes sense. For your entertainment, enjoy the musings of CNN’s Brian Stelter… WATCH: https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1132744472037511168?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1132744472037511168&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F421760-cnns-brian-stelter-claims-showing-pelosi-problems-is-smear-but-her-attack-on-trumps-mental-health-shows-real-concerns-about-him%2F Due to the conservative policies of President Trump, unemployment in America just hit a 50-year low. Unemployment now stands at 3.6 percent, which is undoubtedly a milestone for the Trump administration – and the United States, as a whole. Women and black Americans, in particular, are thriving. And yet, far-left Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) doesn’t see it that way – continuing to play politics at every turn. Pelosi argues that the low unemployment rate is “promising,” but it doesn’t do enough. WE NEED MORE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION! Here’s her official statement (bold mine)… “The April jobs report numbers show some promising news, yet these gains hide the true weight of the economic uncertainty felt by millions of hard-working Americans. Unfortunately, the evidence shows that most of the economic gains continue to benefit those already well-off. We must do more to ensure that the economy is benefiting every family in every community, and that all Americans have the opportunity to move ahead in our economy. “Republicans’ shameful special interest agenda continues to undermine the health and financial security of middle class families across the country. This week, two years after House Republicans celebrated their vote to pass the outrageous Trumpcare bill, we still see the devastating impact of the GOP’s continuing health care sabotage. As the Administration continues its monstrous legal campaign to destroy pre-existing condition protections and every benefit provided by the Affordable Care Act, House Democrats are working on taking decisive action to lower health costs and…
