Biden admin smuggles pro-abortion rules into pregnant workers law

Pregnant women know that the presence of a heartbeat is significant.

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Julie Marie Blake regarding a new rule the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced Monday that hijacks a bipartisan law, the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, to impose pro-abortion regulations on virtually every employer in the country, even those whose religious beliefs dictate that life begins at conception:

“This rule is just the latest example of the Biden administration abusing its power to advance abortion. The new rule seeks to punish the speech of pro-life employers and restrict their hiring practices. The Biden administration and the EEOC don’t have the legal authority to smuggle this illegitimate rule into a law that was created to protect and support women and that had nothing to do with abortion.”

ADF attorneys filed a public comment in October urging the EEOC to withdraw its proposed rule.
