Your tax dollars will be used to fund abortions for "unaccompanied children" in the U.S.
Health and Human Service’s Office of Refuge Resettlement (ORR) has confirmed to CNSNews.com that abortion is one of the emergency medical services that must be made available by federally funded caregivers of illegal alien unaccompanied minors (Unaccompanied Children or UC) who have been sexually assaulted and become pregnant.Don't worry, religious organizations morally opposed to abortion.
HHS issued a new regulation on “sexual abuse and sexual harassment” of unaccompanied children on Dec. 24, 2014, and although the regulation does not specially name abortion as one of the required emergency medical services, an official from HHS’ Administration for Children and Families, which operates ORR, told CNSNews.com via email that abortion is one of those services.
...As CNSNews.com reported earlier, the HHS regulation also includes “emergency contraception,” which includes abortion-inducing drugs such as Plan B One Step, which can prevent a fertilized egg from implantation.
“This IFR proposes standards and procedures to prevent, detect, and respond to sexual abuse and sexual harassment involving unaccompanied children (UCs) in ORR’s care provider facilities,” the regulation says.
The regulation adds: “Care provider facilities must provide UC victims of sexual abuse timely, unimpeded access to emergency medical treatment, crisis intervention services, emergency contraception, and sexually transmitted infections prophylaxis, in accordance with professionally accepted standards of care, where appropriate under medical or mental health professional standards.”
According to the Center for Family and Human Rights, or CFAM, this regulation applies to the many faith-based charities and organizations that are opposed to abortion and abortion-inducing drugs based on their religious convictions.
HHS addressed this moral objection in the regulation by suggesting that organizations could abate those concerns by partnering with others to provide medical services, including ORR itself.
...Providers must comply with the rule by June 24, 2015, according to the Federal Register.
The government will partner with you so you don't have to perform those "medical treatments."
But we're still forced to pay.
