  • BreakPoint: From Forcing Nuns to Freeing Nurses

    08/30/2019 7:36:14 PM PDT · by Morgana ^ | AUG, 30, 2019 | John Stonestreet & G. Shane Morris
    According to the records, in Fiscal Year 2018 the U.S. Health and Human Services Civil Rights Office received over a thousand complaints, alleging conscience violations or religious discrimination. That’s significantly more than in any year recorded under the previous presidential administration. One complaint came from a Catholic nurse working at the University of Vermont Medical Center. The unnamed nurse claims that her employer forced her to take part in an abortion, though she had informed the hospital of her pro-life beliefs. The nurse was scheduled to help a patient who had suffered a miscarriage, but when she walked into the...

    For the first time in our nation's history, there is now a federal department spending an average of more than $100 billion per month. No, it is not the Department of Defense, which is charged with the core federal responsibility of defending us from foreign enemies. It is the Department of Health and Human Services, which, if Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has his way, will run the "Medicare for All" program. As it now stands, HHS runs Medicare for many and Medicaid for more. "In 2019, the program will cover an estimated 61 million persons (52 million aged...

    The situation on the U.S. southern border with Mexico continues to deteriorate as hundreds of thousands of Central Americans falsely claim asylum, overwhelming Border Patrol and HHS facilities. But while most Democrats are still sitting by with complaints and false accusations instead of solutions, others are finally admitting a crisis exists. CNN's Fareed Zakaria is one of them, who took time on his show this week to detail how the current asylum system is being gamed at devastating levels. "It pains me to say this but he [President Trump] is right that the United States faces a crisis with its...

    WASHINGTON -- The federal government will stop funding intramural research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) involving fetal tissue derived from elective abortions, the Department of Health and Human Services said Wednesday. "Promoting the dignity of human life from conception to natural death is one of the very top priorities of President Trump's administration," the department said in a statement. "Intramural research that requires new acquisition of fetal tissue from elective abortions will not be conducted." The department said current NIH-funded research at academic centers with abortion-derived fetal tissue can continue, however, and new projects can still be funded,...

    The Trump administration is canceling English classes, recreational programs and legal aid for unaccompanied minors staying in federal migrant shelters nationwide, saying the immigration influx at the southern border has created critical budget pressures. ... Federal officials have warned Congress that they are facing “a dramatic spike” in unaccompanied minors at the southern border and have asked Congress for $2.9 billion in emergency funding to expand shelters and care. The program could run out of money in late June, and the agency is legally obligated to direct funding to essential services, Weber said. The move — revealed in an email...

On Wednesday, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced a final rule from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that will require direct-to-consumer television advertisements for prescription pharmaceuticals covered by Medicare or Medicaid to include the list price – the Wholesale Acquisition Cost – if that price is equal to or greater...

    WASHINGTON — Black Christian pastors, doctors and lawyers are calling on the Department of Health and Human Services to abolish its Office of Population Affairs, an entity that they say is responsible for funding contraceptive programs that are partly responsible for a “genocide” in their communities. In the aftermath of the 2019 March for Life, dozens gathered at Emmanuel Church of God in Christ in Southeast D.C. Friday evening for the “Sudden Uprising” conference to speak out against abortion and to call for an end to federal birth control and contraceptive funding that they argue has helped reduce the African-American...

    On Friday the Office for Civil Rights at the Department of Health and Human Services finally announced that it found California violated the federal conscience protection laws. This is the first time since the launch of the new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division one year ago that OCR has found a violation under these laws. Several pregnancy resource clinics in California complained that the state of California had fined them for refusing to refer others to, and advertise, abortion clinics. In 2015, California adopted the Reproductive Freedom, Accountability, Comprehensive Care, and Transparency Act, which required pregnancy resource centers to essentially...

    A former executive for Pfizer, recently tasked with joining HHS to help reduce the prices of Big Pharma’s monopoly prescription medications, was found bludgeoned to death outside his Washington D.C. apartment. Local police ruled the death of Daniel Best a suicide, raising immediate questions about how an individual can bludgeon himself to death with multiple blows. “The city’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner on Thursday said Best died from “multiple blunt force injuries” and it ruled his death a suicide. It would not release further information,” reports The news website also reports: In announcing his death, HHS Secretary...

    Last week, a federal judge in California dismissed a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union had filed in 2016 challenging the government’s award of grants to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to provide services to unaccompanied minor illegal aliens and trafficking victims. In the lawsuit, the ACLU argued the grants violated the Establishment Clause because the Department of Health and Human Services allowed the Catholic organization (and its sub-grantees) to deny girls and women in their care contraceptives and abortion. The court rejected the ACLU’s Establishment Clause claim in a methodical 34-page opinion, explaining that the federal funds...

    A federal court has granted a Christian liberal arts college in Pennsylvania a permanent injunction against the Obama-era abortion pill mandate that required the school to be complicit in providing health care coverage that violated its religious convictions. On Thursday, Judge Joy Flowers Conti of the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania granted permanent relief to Geneva College, a liberal arts school affiliated with the Reformed Presbyterian Church of North America. Conti ruled that the Department of Health and Human Services Obamacare contraception mandate violated the college's rights under the Religious Freedom Restoration Act by requiring...

    Contrary to reports of mass confusion at the Southwest Border, where the Department of Health and Human Services is under a court order to reunite children with the parents who brought them here illegally, "there is no confusion whatsoever," HHS Secretary Alex Azar told Fox News Thursday morning. Azar said his department is working against a court-imposed deadline to reunite the 11,800 children with the people who are claiming to be their parents. The process includes DNA testing. "Every child is accounted for," Azar said. "We know every child, where they are. We know the record -- the last time...

    It’s about time… finally someone does a great job of explaining why President Trump’s plan is 100 times better and safer than Obama’s plan. Hopefully, whistleblower Jason Piccalo will go on TV and start screaming this to the public. I hope he gets on Hannity or Tucker Carlson to show what has happened to many children during the Obama Administration. This is important! While everyone on the left is screaming about the illegal alien children being put into detention centers, it’s important to remember that the Obama policy of catch and release put the kids in danger by placing some...

The notification, sent to lawmakers on Wednesday and first reported by The Washington Post, says the Defense Department received a request for assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). “HHS has requested DOD determine its capabilities to provide up to 20,000 temporary beds for unaccompanied children at DOD installations,” the document states. If the Pentagon finds that it can provide such lodging, “the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) requests the...
