Twenty states are uniting to fight a new Biden administration rule, saying it forces taxpayers to subsidize the killing of unborn babies in abortions in clear violation of the law.

Life News reports:

This week, Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen led eight states in filing an amicus brief supporting 12 other states’ lawsuit against the new Title X program rule. They asked a federal court to grant relief to the 12 states by blocking the Biden administration from enforcing the rule.

“A preliminary injunction would stop federal tax dollars from being used to encourage and support abortion, protect the conscience rights of family planning providers who decline to play a role in abortion, and preserve choice of providers and keep family planning services accessible for patients, particularly those in rural areas,” Knudsen’s office said in a statement.

Title X funds are not supposed to be used for abortions. The program provides family planning services to low-income individuals, and the law states that Title X grants may not be used “where abortion is a method of family planning.”

….

However, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under Biden quickly reversed the rules, so that abortion facilities no longer have to separate their abortion work from their services under the program. HHS now also mandates that Title X participants refer women for abortions.

“Requiring Title X grantees to make abortion referrals upon request is tantamount to funding a program where abortion is the method of family planning,” Knudsen said in the brief. “Practically, this allows Title X recipients to refer patients for elective abortions at their own abortion facilities.”

We can assure you Hunter and I are are not friends with China, it’s strictly business, you know monkey business, at the expense of the American tax payor. This
has nothing to do with me pushing for battery operated vehicles at GM and other places etc. nor my”business friendship with China” and not that pot of gold Hunter is holding for tought times for the biden family.We are “not at war with the energy industry” in the United States, just those who won’t use our Chinese Batteries. Even thou we shared the same office and the same checking accounts, had know idea Hunter was involved with this deal, hey long before the Biden administration came to be, and Joe Biden had pushed green energy credits in his Build Back Better spending plan this year, “Hunter Biden helped grease the wheels for a Chinese business to buy up key rare-earth minerals used in batteries for electric vehicles”. The New York Times reported Saturday that Hunter Biden was part owner in an investment firm that was involved in a Chinese conglomerate’s $3.8 billion purchase of one of the world’s largest cobalt deposits in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Biden’s spending package passed the House on Friday night and it plans to give away “$ 320 billion in tax credits for companies or consumers who buy electric vehicles”, purchase solar panels, or invest in improving the energy efficiency of their buildings. Cobalt mines are pivotal to China’s world dominance in making batteries for those electric vehicles the”Build Back Better Plan” and Democrats are effectively hoisting on the American people through U.S. taxpayer dollars and government subsidies. Unwinding the twisting takes of moves, the Times reported Biden was a founding board member of BHR, which is the Bohai Harvest RST (Shanghai) Equity Investment Fund Management Company. It started up in 2013 while Joe Biden was vice president in former President Barack Obama’s White House. Three Americans including Hunter Biden controlled 30% of BHR, while the rest is owned or controlled by Chinese investors, including Bank of China, the Times reported from Chinese regulators’ records. BHR helped finance an Australian coal-mining company controlled by a “Chinese state-owned firm”, and also assisted a subsidiary of a Chinese defense conglomerate in buying a Michigan auto parts maker.
