Skip to comments.New! Biden Threatens to Strip Medicare Status From Hospitals That Fail to Perform Abortions in Emergency Situations
Posted on 07/11/2022 6:14:03 PM PDT by Macho MAGA Man
Joe Biden on Monday told doctors and hospitals around the country that they must perform abortions in emergency situations if the mother’s life is in danger even if their state has a ban on the procedure following the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v Wade.
The Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade last month which means states decide their own abortion laws.
More than 25 states have ‘trigger bans’ – meaning abortion becomes illegal or severely restricted once Roe v Wade is overturned.
Biden threatened to issue fines and strip Medicare status from hospitals that fail to perform abortions in emergency situations.
"Today, in no uncertain terms, we are reinforcing that we expect providers to continue offering these services, and that federal law preempts state abortion bans when needed for emergency care,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra. “Under the law, no matter where you live, women have the right to emergency care — including abortion care.”

This will be an emergency SCOTUS review case. Especially given their recent ruling THT CORRECTED A MASSIVE PRIOR SCOTUS ERROR.
Is a nine month timeline considered an emergency?
Evil people do this
This will be struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court. There is NO federal law guaranteeing abortion rights.
I swear our Government is run by the same group the put my high school yearbook together.
So this decrepit piece of excrement thinks old people who are not getting pregnant should have to suffer because of abortions?
Is any Repube going to make this an issue?
Every single abortion will be an “emergency”. That’s how they roll. Democrats have more to answer for than those that participated in the Holocaust.
It’s not blackmail it’s nonsense…
No law denies abortion to save the mothers life…
This so theater for the ignorant
If no medicare hospitals in the area where will the poors get care for their battle wounds.?
Hopefully Rand Paul will do something.
Then hospitals won’t admit Medicare patients. Sounds like a winning strategy. Joe Biden doesn’t understand that he’s supposed to be running a country, not a terrorist organization.
“This so theater for the ignorant”
Unfortunately, that’s half of America.
Would that it would end Medicare. That would be a twofer.
Did same thing for health care worker vax mandates—no CMS Medicare/Medicaid $$ if not vaxxed~even for remote employees...Few religious exemptions allowed.
Tired of them blackmailing to enforce their will over the people.
Ah. So a medical doctor will deliver a client to an emergency room and sign a document attesting to a “life-threatening mecical emergency” that only an abortionist can handle. Is that how they’ll do it?
Precursor to fascism.
