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

Great news!

Published

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.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
