Xi Jinping just secured a third term as the leader of China and is still threatening to invade Taiwan.
Vladimir Putin is still fighting a war in Ukraine, and this could escalate into a nuclear conflict at any time.
These days, China and Russia are emerging as global threats. But Biden has other priorities for America’s military.
Biden’s Defense Secretary says Pentagon will take steps to “ensure access” to abortions “as soon as possible”
Amid a tumultuous time for global security and political alignment, the Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has sent out a memo that he clearly finds very important.
The topic of the memo had nothing to do with America’s national defense, but rather it covered the Pentagon’s new plans to “ensure access to reproductive health care.”
According to Austin, these new measures will go into effect “as soon as possible to ensure that Service members and their families can access reproductive health care and health care providers can operate effectively.”
Of course, they mean that they want to let abortion doctors continue their work, and they want their service members to continue having abortions.
Taxpayers will be covering “monetary awards” against doctors who perform abortions under “official duties”
In the memo the Department of Defense says it will “develop a program to reimburse applicable fees, as appropriate and consistent with applicable federal law, for Department of Defense health care providers who wish to become licensed in a different state than that in which they are currently licensed in order to support the performance of official duties.”
This means that they are planning to comply with state laws and provide relocation services to doctors who are performing abortions in “official” capacity.
It’s shocking that they even have doctors who they would need to relocate because all they do is perform abortions in the first place.
They’re not just retreating from states entirely though.
In fact, they are planning to “develop a program to support [DOD] health care providers who are subject to adverse action, including civil or criminal penalties” in the case that they are “appropriately performing their official duties.”
The memo even implies it will pay for “monetary award consistent with the law” in such cases that they face financial loss because of civil or criminal charges.
So the Pentagon will now be using taxpayer dollars to help abortion doctors move to places where the practice is legal but, if they choose to practice illegally, then taxpayers will pay the penalties.
DOD also wants Americans to pay for “transportation allowances” for people seeking abortions across state lines
They’re not stopping at relocating and defending practitioners.
They even want taxpayers to fund DOD employees’ access to abortions.
The Pentagon memo went on to share plans to “establish travel and transportation allowances for Service members and their dependents . . . to facilitate official travel to access non-covered reproductive health care that is unavailable within the local area of a Service member’s permanent duty station.”
They also promised to update the military health system websites to “clarify the types of medical care that are available through the Military Health System . . . regardless of whether it is performed, or paid for, by the [DOD] at a military medical treatment facility or by a TRICARE authorized provider.”
At this point the Biden regime has shown an utter disregard for the will of the people.
Now they’re on record as having violated the Hyde Amendment.
Many pro-life policy makers will surely take this battle to the White House.
