President Issues Another Executive Order on Abortion

The action would authorize the use of Medicaid to fund out-of-state abortions. 

President Biden signed another executive order in the wake of the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade. The new action authorizes the use of Medicaid funds to help pro-abortion states provide the procedure to women traveling to receive an abortion. 

At the signing ceremony, President Biden said, “Secretary Becerra (Health and Human Services) is going to work with states through Medicaid to allow them to provide reproductive health care for women who live in states where their abortions were being banned in that state. The executive order makes sure healthcare providers comply with federal law, so women don’t face delays or denials of medically necessary care.” 

The president also stated, “I am committed to doing everything in my power, including taking strong action in the Executive Order I signed today, to safeguard access to abortion care.” 

Legal questions are already being raised about whether or not the new executive order violates the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and leaders within his administration to seek the Lord’s heart regarding the lives of the unborn.
  • For federal legislators as they determine the legality of the president’s order in light of the Hyde Amendment.
  • For citizens across the United States who are recognizing God as the Creator of life.
