Biden Encourages Dangerous Underage Abortions?

  • Executive

In Brief: 
Last week the historic Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health gave American babies more protection than they have had in 50 years. However, the Biden administration unveiled a new website this week that directs young girls to information about how to get a secret abortion without their parents’ knowledge or consent. 

The Background:

The new website from the Biden administration describes killing unborn babies in abortions as a “right,” despite the fact the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that there is no constitutional right to abortion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health last week.

Primarily, the government site directs users to another websites, including the billion-dollar abortion chain Planned Parenthood. They further give information on how to get taxpayers or independent groups to pay for it.

One of the sites recommended by the Biden administration specializes in underage abortions and how to obtain an illegal underage abortion, directing them to a separate website to obtain a judicial bypass to get an abortion “if you need to avoid involving a parent or guardian…”

The webpage contains a “quick exit” button that immediately redirects the website to an unrelated webpage, presumably so minors won’t get caught browsing.

When it comes to mail-order abortions even for minors, Mifepristone is recommended and “prescribed.”

According to Life News, 

“Mifepristone is used to abort unborn babies up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. It blocks the hormone progesterone and basically starves the baby to death.” For decades, the FDA required that abortionists could only prescribe in-person after a thorough medical examination due to its many high risks. That was lifted by the Biden administration in December, thereby no longer requiring the in-person requirement and began allowing the drug to be sold through the mail. These abortion drugs can now be purchased online- without ever seeing or even speaking to a doctor despite the FDA linking the abortion drug to at least 26 women’s deaths and 4,000 serious complications between 2000 and 2018. But once again, that is of no concern to our leadership. Under President Barack Obama, the FDA stopped requiring that non-fatal complications from Mifepristone be reported. So true numbers are unknown, but assumed to be much higher.”

All new data and reports show that serious side effects are being downplayed and even ignored, with as many as one in seventeen mothers requiring hospital treatment post-abortion. In another study done by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, it was found that “the rate of abortion-related emergency room visits by women taking the abortion drug increased more than 500 percent between 2002 and 2015.”

After all, this is all about the health of women, so they say.

Notable Quotes:

“There are other options if you can’t or don’t want to involve your parents, or if your parents refuse to support your decision...You can get an order from a judge that lets you get an abortion without telling your parents. This process is called judicial bypass.” - Townhall
