Biden Administration aims to turn hospital emergency rooms into abortion facilities

Editor’s note. These remarks were delivered at a press conference Wednesday as the Supreme Court was hearing oral arguments over the Biden Administration’s misuse of the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA).

The Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act has been law in this country since 1986. For 38 years, dedicated medical personnel in emergency rooms have been helping women and their preborn children to obtain the medical care they needed. EMTALA contains a duty to both a pregnant woman and her unborn child, and never mentions abortion.

Sadly, but not surprisingly, the Biden administration is trying to force hospitals to ignore one of those patients. Apparently, the Biden administration thinks that emergency rooms are no longer capable of providing care for both mother and child. Their solution is to turn hospital emergency rooms into abortion facilities.

In Idaho, and in every state in this country, doctors have and will continue to care for women experiencing life-threatening conditions, including ectopic pregnancies, and to treat complications from miscarriage. The Biden Administration is attempting to twist the compassionate EMTALA law to push their radical agenda of unlimited abortion.

This president, this administration, has become a one-trick pony with the death of preborn children their primary goal.

Don’t let them get away with it.
