(trendingpolitics) – While the State Department attacks Russia for daring to say that the West is full of degenerates, Brandon is pushing to make it even easier to kill unborn babies. Watch Psaki proudly announce that here:
Here was her full statement on the issues, part of which can be heard in the video. It comes from the January 21st press briefing:
Tomorrow also marks the 49th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade. Reproductive health care has been under extreme and relentless assault ever since, especially in recent months. It has been nearly 150 days since women in Texas have been denied these constitutional rights.
We are deeply committed to making sure everyone has access to care and we will defend it with every tool we have. That includes continuing to work with Congress to pass the Women’s Health Protection Act and codify this fundamental right into law.
In the meantime, the administration has taken a range of important actions, from repealing the global gag rule to strengthening the Title X Family Planning Program. Today, HHS announced additional Title X grants, and there will be further announcements coming from HHS later today as well.

This is a moment for us to recommit to strengthening access to critical reproductive healthcare, defend — defending the constitutional right established by Roe, and protecting the freedom of all people to build their own future.
Here’s what the summary page of the “Women’s Health Protection Act” to which Psaki refers would do:
This bill prohibits governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, abortion services.
Specifically, governments may not limit a provider’s ability to
- prescribe certain drugs,
- offer abortion services via telemedicine, or
- immediately provide abortion services when the provider determines a delay risks the patient’s health.
Furthermore, governments may not require a provider to
- perform unnecessary medical procedures,
- provide medically inaccurate information,
- comply with credentialing or other conditions that do not apply to providers whose services are medically comparable to abortions, or
- carry out all services connected to an abortion.
In addition, governments may not (1) require patients to make medically unnecessary in-person visits before receiving abortion services or disclose their reasons for obtaining such services, or (2) prohibit abortion services before fetal viability or after fetal viability when a provider determines the pregnancy risks the patient’s life or health.
So, Brandon, while denigrating the Russians for defending traditional values, is attempting to remove more or less all restrictions on abortions. That includes abortion “telemedicine” (whatever that means) and “prohibit[ing] governmental restrictions on the provision of, and access to, abortion services.”
Got it. Team Brandon is committed to helping women kill babies. Brandon himself said about as much in a statement released on the 21st, saying:
The constitutional right established in Roe v. Wade nearly 50 years ago today is under assault as never before. It is a right we believe should be codified into law, and we pledge to defend it with every tool we possess. We are deeply committed to protecting access to health care, including reproductive health care—and to ensuring that this country is not pushed backwards on women’s equality.
[…]The Biden-Harris Administration strongly supports efforts to codify Roe, and we will continue to work with Congress on the Women’s Health Protection Act. All people deserve access to reproductive health care regardless of their gender, income, race, zip code, health insurance status, immigration status, disability, or sexual orientation. And the continued defense of this constitutional right is essential to our health, safety, and progress as a nation.
Well, it’s not essential to the health and safety of the murdered babies. It would also be hard to say that a nation already struggling to produce enough babies is progressing because it’s trying to make it easier to kill babies. But Brandon was never known for the coherence of his arguments.
