Biden Administration Announces Significant Financial Support for Texas Abortion Providers

 

Biden Administration Announces Significant Financial Support for Texas Abortion Providers

 

Health Secretary Xavier Becerra announced on Friday, Sept. 17, his support for both abortion providers in the state of Texas and their potential patients, following recent state legislation that bans the killing of babies from the moment a heartbeat is detected.

In early September, the Supreme Court had the opportunity to strike down the legislation enacted in Texas; however, to the surprise of many, that did not happen, and as a result, the historic legislation remains in place.

Democratic politicians and leftist movements lamented the Court’s decision and continued in a legal fight to reverse the law pushed by conservatives and Republicans in Texas.

Hospital Asks Staff to Prove Religious Exemption for COVID Vaccine by Refusing Tylenol

 

Conway Regional Hospital in Arkansas is allowing employees to bypass a vaccine mandate on religious grounds, but they’re asking some to validate that objection by promising not to use more than 30 medications and vaccines.

Health care systems, businesses and schools across the country have implemented COVID-19 vaccine mandates, prompting a spike in people claiming religious exemptions. Few religions outright reject vaccinations, but some religious groups have taken issue with vaccines being developed and tested on fetal cell lines, which are grown in labs based on aborted fetal cells.

Biden’s Vaccine Mandate May Force Low-Income Area Hospital to Shut Down

 

Biden’s Vaccine Mandate May Force Low-Income Area Hospital to Shut Down

 

Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for healthcare workers is putting rural hospitals at risk. Jerry Jasper, CEO at Brownfield Regional Medical Center, said he might be forced to shut down due to the mandate.

In an interview with KCBD, Jasper explained that nursing agencies are already recruiting hospital staff with promises of higher wages. Though he encourages staff members to get vaccinated, not all of them have taken the jab. Jasper estimates that 20 to 25 percent of his staff will leave if a vaccine mandate is implemented. Losing these workers will likely shut down the institution.

“They [China] are using that to divide us, to use that as a kink in our armor to divide us from within, by getting corporations to criticize injustice here, without saying a peep about injustice over there and deflecting accountability for their human rights abuses.”
