There isn’t much that California does these days that shocks people.
It’s become such a bastion of socialism that most don’t even bat an eye when they hear about another left-wing extremist move by California’s government.
But it appears President Trump has had enough. And that’s why you won’t believe the action the Health Human Services Department is taking against California.
The state of California requires private health insurance plans to pay for abortions, which essentially forces the hand of pro-life churches and Christian groups to fund the killing of babies.
As early as January of this year, the Trump administration had warned California that it was in violation of federal law.
In 2014, California deemed abortion a “basic health service” under the Affordable Care Act and, in turn, ordered insurance plans in the state to immediately begin covering elective abortions.
Churches and religious organizations in the state were not exempt from the mandate.
For the past six years, churches, religious organizations, and pro-life groups across California have been fighting against the onerous abortion mandate with no relief in sight.
But now the Trump administration is taking action, saying that California’s actions violate the Weldon Amendment, which protects conscience rights and prohibits states that receive federal funding from compelling healthcare plans to fund abortion.
As a result of the President’s action, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced last week that $200 million in Medicaid funds would be withheld each quarter from the state of California until it removes the abortion-funding requirement.
It is a sad state of affairs when pro-life groups and churches have to fight for their right to not pay for abortions.
But we are seeing more and more states deem abortions a “basic health service,” and the clinics that perform these heinous acts are considered “essential businesses.”
The Left has taken their pro-abortion stance to new levels and will stop at nothing to make the killing of innocent humans a protected act, even up to the actual birth of the child.
Once again, we see left-wing extremists yelling about how we must all be unified and come together as one regardless of what we believe.
However, it seems that the Left doesn’t really want to unify with those who believe it is wrong to kill babies.
