HHS official to abortion opponents: 'We're just getting started'

For the first time in recent memory, an official from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services spoke at a conference of the nation’s largest anti-abortion organization.

“Our president is fearless when it comes to life and conscience,” said Roger Severino, who directs the Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights. “We’re just getting started.” Severino was a featured speaker at the National Right to Life convention Thursday in Overland Park.

snip========================================================

The Department of Health and Human Services drew both praise and criticism in January when the Trump Administration created a new conscience and religious freedom division of the office of civil rights and proposed regulations to protect health care workers who don’t want to perform abortions or other services because of their religious or moral beliefs.

The department’s strategic plan also now includes language that says, “A core component of the HHS mission is the dedication to serve all Americans from conception to natural death.”

3. You won't take a right we've had for fifty years away so easily.

You have no idea what you are up against. Seventy six percent of women are polling right now to keep roe v Wade .

''

What a pant load. seriously? They said this "“A core component of the HHS mission is the dedication to serve all Americans from conception to natural death" From conception to natural death? Does natural death mean when snap is taken away and healthcare is gone...is starvation and no access to care a "natural death"?

5. This sheshe2!

They only care about the fetus, they could give a damn about the lives of actual human beings once they are born. No health insurance? Too bad, sucks to be you. As long as the fetuses are taken care of that is all that matters.

6. "Natural death" means "When GOP policies kill you."

That's the GOP for you: promise to take care of you, then kill you so they don't have to take care of you.

7. "Natural death" also precludes the death penalty

which so many "pro-lifers" enthusiastically support.
