The Biden administration is once again trying to circumvent the Dobbs decision and the law by providing abortions through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Let’s pray against this.

From LifeNews.com. A Texas nurse has filed a lawsuit to stop Joe Biden from turning VA hospitals into abortion clinics.

Leading pro-life groups are concerned that a $71 million increase in taxpayer funding to the Office of Women’s Health at the Department of Veterans Affairs will be used illegally to fund abortions. Since 1992, the Department of Veterans Affairs has been statutorily prohibited from using taxpayer dollars for abortion. In September, the Biden administration ignored this longstanding prohibition and issued a new rule that funds abortion for undefined and presumably broad “health” reasons.

Meanwhile, the Department of Veterans Affairs said it plans to kill babies in abortions in cases of rape or incest or in cases where the mother’s life or health is in danger, even though doctors repeatedly say abortions are never medically necessary.

Responding to this, a VA nurse in Texas has filed a lawsuit against the administration, saying she doesn’t want to have to work at a hospital that also kills babies in abortions and could require her to assist in or promote abortions.

The plaintiff in the Texas lawsuit — Stephanie Carter, a nurse practitioner at the Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Center in Temple — is a 23-year VA employee and Army veteran who says in legal filings that she cannot “work in a facility that performs abortion services for reasons other than to save the life of the mother because … unborn babies are created in the image of God and should be protected.”

The lawsuit was filed on Carter’s behalf by First Liberty Institute, a nonprofit Christian conservative legal group based in Texas. In a statement, officials said the new policy violates a host of religious liberty protections.

“It is unconscionable that the Biden administration would force health care workers at VA facilities to violate their consciences,” said Danielle Runyan, senior counsel for the institute. “The VA should be focused on caring for the men and women who bravely served to protect our country, not on performing illegal abortions.”

The lawsuit (filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas) alleges that allowing abortions at VA facilities “substantially burdens Ms. Carter’s sincerely held religious beliefs and forces her to choose between her job and her religious convictions.”

Carter says she is already facing pressure to promote abortions.

VA Press Secretary Terrence Hayes claimed that the pro-life and religious views of VA employees would be respected but the Biden admin has repeatedly left pro-life medical workers hanging out to dry and is actively trying to force Christian doctors and nurses to participate in abortions in other areas.

Biden’s move is already a violation of federal law that prohibits the taxpayer-funded VA medical centers from doing abortions but it also violates the Dobbs decision, whereby the Supreme Court gave states the ability to protect babies from abortions.

During a Congressional hearing, a Biden official said the illegal plan will have VA clinics distributing the dangerous abortion pill that has killed dozens of women and injured thousands — and likely more but the federal government stopped counting the number of deaths and injuries to women. …

Responding to the plan, Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-Montana) said he’s glad that Alabama and possible other states will file suit against it.

Although VA officials claim many of the abortions will be to save the life of the mother or in difficult medical circumstances, the VA will start with abortion drugs that are virtually never used in such cases and are almost always done for an elective abortion merely to kill the baby. As many as 1,000 babies or more will be killed in abortions whereas requests for abortion in medical emergencies are very rare. …

Biden’s move to expand abortion on demand through the Department of Veteran Affairs breaks federal law. It is in violation of Section 106 of the Veterans Health Care Act of 1992 which specifically prohibits the VA from providing abortion. …

Deuteronomy 6:5 And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Luke 10:25-28 One day an expert in the law stood up to test Him. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

“What is written in the Law?” Jesus replied. “How do you read it?”

He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”

“You have answered correctly,” Jesus said. “Do this and you will live.”

Revelation 21:8 But to the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and sexually immoral and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their place will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death.”

Jeremiah 50:9 For behold, I stir up and bring against Babylon an assembly of great nations from the land of the north. They will line up against her; from the north she will be captured. Their arrows will be like skilled warriors who do not return empty-handed.

Dear Heavenly Father, I believe Stephanie Carter is serving You with her heart, mind, soul and all of her strength. I believe she is a warrior and pray she is an arrow in Your quiver with EVERY ONE of her efforts perfectly targeted. I pray You will bless each individual working to support this lawsuit. I pray You will totally destroy this plan and remove everyone from leadership in support of it. Save the babies Lord. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen
