OUTRAGEOUS: Biden to Leverage Title IX to fund Abortion

The Biden Administration is weaponizing Title IX to fund its radical pro-abortion agenda. The administration is proposing rule changes to the landmark 1972 regulatory law that will redefine sex and pregnancy to include abortion.  These changes will impact every K-12 school, college or university that receives federal funding.

The Washington Examiner explains the proposed rule changes to Title IX:

Our Heritage Foundation colleagues have sounded the alarm on how the proposed rule changes would undercut women’s athletics , undermine due process, impose woke sexual orthodoxy, and more.

But what about pregnancy?…

No longer is abortion recognized as a so-called constitutional right. Abortion policy has returned to the American people and their elected representatives.

While the high court’s 1973 ruling in Roe v. Wade was in effect, top-down national guidelines dictated state abortion law. This made interpretation of Title IX’s regulations easier to apply. Now, states have enacted — or are in the process of enacting — new policies that protect women and unborn children from abortion.

By neither “requiring nor prohibiting” abortion access in schools, the language of the Title IX rule change would create a “ gray zone .” This gray zone would mean that schools may “opt in” to use Title IX as a vehicle for abortion education, referrals, or access. This could take the form of connecting students with abortion clinics, not disclosing a pregnancy or abortion to a minor’s parents, paying for abortion travel, or promoting dangerous abortion pills.

What if a K-12 school or college receives Title IX funding but is located in a state that protects mothers and preborn babies? The Department of Education doesn’t provide any insight into how the conflict between federal regulation and state law would be resolved.

The proposed Title IX rule changes, coupled with the Dobbs decision, will encourage schools and universities to “opt in” to promote abortion. That could allow the Biden administration to use federal funding through the Department of Education to promote abortion in states where abortion is banned.
