Secretary Becerra to “Double Down” on Abortion Access

Will work to include abortion access within Medicare, Medicaid.

On Wednesday, Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra testified before the Senate Appropriations Committee, giving an update on the HHS’s Reproductive Healthcare Access Task Force. When asked what his department would do if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Secretary Becerra said that they would work to provide family planning access regardless of the decision.

“We are going to double down on the effort to make sure that the legal rights all Americans, women to access the care that they’re entitled to continues forward,” said Becerra. “We will also make it clear what the law requires of anyone who accepts federal funding through Medicare, Medicaid to provide services to all Americans without discrimination.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his administration to turn their hearts toward the Lord as they set health care policy.
  • For Secretary Becerra to seek God’s guidance as he implements the president’s agenda.
  • For God’s protection over the justices of the Supreme Court as they continue to consider the abortion case ruling in the wake of the decision draft leak.
