Department of Justice Creates ‘Reproductive Rights Task Force’ to Ensure the Slaughter of Innocents Continues – Opinion

In the surreal press conference Joe Biden held Friday (Biden’s Incoherent Abortion Remarks Include ‘Ron Burgundy’ Moment) on the subject of the federal government’s response to the Supreme Court decision in Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health Organization (Full Opinion: Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization), the resident of the White House laid out a parade of horribles that he insisted would proceed from the fact that about half of the states would outlaw the ability of women to kill their kids at will.

But in the meantime, I’m signing this important executive order.  I’m asking the Justice Department that, much like they did in the Civil Rights era, to do something — do everything in their power to protect these women seeking to invoke their right:

Protect them against intimidation in those states that still have clinics.

Protecting women’s right to travel to and from states that prevent them from seeking medical care.

To protect a woman’s right to the FDA-approved — Federal Drug Administration-approved medication that’s been available for over 20 years.

This executive order gives you access to healthcare.  The patient arrives at the hospital emergency department in any one of the states in the union.  She’s expressing and experiencing a life-threatening miscarriage, but the doctor is going to be so concerned about being criminalized for treating her, they delay treatment to call the hospital lawyer who is concerned the hospital will be penalized if a doctor provides the lifesaving care.  It’s outrageous.  I don’t care what your position is.  It’s outrageous, and it’s dangerous.

That’s why this executive order directs the Department of Health and Human Services — HHS — to ensure all patients, including pregnant women and girls experience pregnant — experiencing pregnancy loss get emergency care they need under federal law, and that doctors have clear guidance on their own responsibilities and protections no matter what the state — no matter what state they’re in.

The executive order protects access to contraception — that I’m about to sign.

Justice Thomas himself said that under the reasoning of this decision — this is what Justice Thomas said in his concurring opinion — that the Court “should reconsider the constitutional right to contraception — to use contraception even among married couples.

In what century are they?  There used to be a case called — Connecticut v. Griswold [Griswold v. Connecticut], which was declared unconstitutional in the late ‘60s.  The law stated that a couple could decide in their privacy to not use contraception.

Right now, in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, the Affordable Care Act guarantees insurance coverage for women’s health services, including — including free birth control.  HHS is required by the executive order to find ways to increase access to reproductive services like IUDs and birth control pills.

This executive order also protects the privacy of patients and allows them to access information. The press that has been assembled in front me probably knows more than I about this subject.  I’m not a tech guy.  I’m learning.

Companies collect data from your smartphone when you use the search engine or app. They sell this information to others and even share with law enforcement.  There’s an increasing concern that extremist governors and others will try to get that data off of your phone, which is out there in the ether, to find what you’re seeking, where you’re going, and what you’re doing with regard to your healthcare.

Talk about no privacy — no privacy in the Constitution.  There’s no privacy, period.

In this executive order, the FTC asks for a crackdown on data brokers who are selling private information either to extreme groups or, in our view, to any person.

It provides private health information — it protects private health information in states with extreme laws.

This executive order enhances coordination at the federal level.  It establishes a task force, led by the White House Department — and the Department of Human Services, focused specifically on using every federal tool available to protect access to reproductive healthcare.

You know, let me close with this: The Court and its allies are committed to moving America backward with fewer rights, less autonomy, and politicians invading the most personal of decisions.  The reasoning behind this decision is far more than Roe or the right to privacy in general.

The future of contraception and marriage equality is in jeopardy.  This decision affects everyone — unrelated to choice — beyond choice.  It is unacceptable that an out-of control Supreme Court can take away our freedoms, and personal autonomy, in collaboration with extremist elements within the Republican Party.

The choice we face as a nation is between the mainstream and the extreme, between moving forward and moving backwards, between allowing politicians to enter the most personal parts of our lives and protecting the right to privacy — yes, yes — embedded in our Constitution.

It is possible to make this choice.  This is a moment — the moment — the moment to restore the rights that have been taken away from us and the moment to protect our nation from an extremist agenda that is antithetical to everything we believe as Americans.

Now, I’m going to sign this executive order.

The executive order is “Protecting Access to Reproductive Health Care Services.”

Tuesday, the White House’s Geheime Staatspolizei, I’m sorry, I mean Justice Department, announced it was getting with the program. The leftwing extremist Vanita Gupta announced she was forming a “reproductive rights task force” to ensure the slaughter of innocents continues unabated. (Read about Gupta’s past here.) Below is the DOJ Press Release.

This “task force” is responding to a non-existent problem. The bullsh** that Biden and his cronies have slung about states prosecuting women who travel out of state is just false. Travel to any other state is not criminalized by the current laws or those that are likely to follow. Even Texas’ unique use of civil action to enforce its abortion statute does not apply to actions taken out of state. There are no laws that prevent the ability of people “inform and counsel each other about the reproductive care that is available in other states.” This promise is damned ironic in the light of this White House trying to shut down counseling services provided by Crisis Pregnancy Centers (Elizabeth Warren Leads the Bloodlust Brigade in the Democrat Party Targeting Pregnancy Centers on Behalf of Abortion). DOJ says it will increase enforcement of the horrendous Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act (FACES). The same DOJ allows pro-aborts literally to block access to Supreme Court justices’ homes. As I’ve said, I am not a lawyer, but in light of Dobbs,It is unlikely that securing federal protection only for abortion clinics, and not for other businesses, will be a problem.

Joey SoftServe’s gang of cretins had made it a point to use the weaponization technique. DobbsTwo levels of decision. This strategy’s most risky aspect is the White House’s conscious attempt to undermine the legitimacy of the Supreme Court. The White House is creating the conditions for an anti-American lawless group to defy Supreme Court rulings in the coming two years. In my view, the creation of this “task force” is just an extension of the desperate rearguard action underway by pro-abort judges to hamstring efforts by states to use the Dobbs ruling; see The Fight to End Abortion Is Facing Massive Resistance From Pro-Abort Organizations and Activist Judges. The second part of the strategy is designed to whip up the anger of the pro-aborts in the Democrat–and Republican–parties in advance of the 2022 elections. We can anticipate that the FBI will uncover more “conspiracies,” like those plotting to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and overthrow the government (The FBI’s Latest Homegrown Terrorist Plot Is an Obvious Joke, but What Is Going to Happen to the People Involved Is Not), to attack abortuaries and the animals that work in them. The sole purpose of this “task force” is to create headlines to support the Democrats in 2022 and 2024.

This one, like many other bad things has potential. This gives us a list of individuals that the next GOP government (I would hope it’s President Ron DeSantis 2024) will have to purge of the federal government.

Justice Department Statement

Today the Justice Department officially announced the formation of the Reproductive Right Task Force. In preparation of the Supreme Court’s possible overturning of this ruling, the Task Force formalizes the work of an existing task group. Roe v. Wade And Casey vs. Planned Parenthood Associate Attorney General Vanita Gupta will chair the Task Force, which will consist of representatives from the Department’s Civil Division, Civil Rights Division, U.S. Attorney community, Office of the Solicitor General, Office for Access to Justice, Office of Legal Counsel, Office of Legal Policy, Office of Legislative Affairs, Office of the Associate Attorney General, Office of the Deputy Attorney General and Office of the Attorney General and will be supported by dedicated staff.

“As Attorney General Garland has said, the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision is a devastating blow to reproductive freedom in the United States,” said Associate Attorney General Gupta. “The Court abandoned 50 years of precedent and took away the constitutional right to abortion, preventing women all over the country from being able to make critical decisions about our bodies, our health, and our futures. The Justice Department is committed to protecting access to reproductive services.”

The Task Force will review and assess all legislation from state and local levels and any enforcement actions.

  • To violate federal law protections related to the provision of or pursuit for reproductive care
  • Impair women’s ability to seek reproductive care in states where it is legal;
  • Impair individuals’ ability to inform and counsel each other about the reproductive care that is available in other states;
  • Ban Mifepristone based on disagreement with the FDA’s expert judgment about its safety and efficacy; or
  • Federal workers who offer reproductive health services under the authority of federal law can be held criminally or civilly liable.

These actions will be identified by the Task Force, which will then coordinate appropriate federal government responses. This includes proactive and defensive legal action. To support federal agencies in their efforts to address issues related to access and reproductive rights, the Task Force will collaborate with them.

The Justice Department works with other stakeholders like advocates, reproductive services providers and state attorneys-general. This important work will be continued by the Task Force. The Task Force will work in conjunction with the Office of Counsel, to organize a meeting of pro bono lawyers, bar associations, and public interest groups to promote the use of legal aid to patients, providers, and other third parties who are legally seeking out reproductive health services. The Task Force will provide online resources such as legal briefs from the Justice Department and information on the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act to aid attorneys who are trying to ensure access to complete reproductive health services.

The Task Force recognizes that Congress is the best place to ensure reproductive freedom. It will coordinate technical assistance for Congress to assist with the development of federal legislation. The Task Force will coordinate technical assistance regarding Federal constitutional protections for states that seek to provide legal protection to patients from outside of the state and to providers offering legal reproductive health care.
