Several Republican lawmakers chastised the Biden administration after the White House promoted a site that helps pregnant teens obtain an abortion while advising them on how to avoid notifying their parents.
Last week, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a press release directly responding to the Supreme Court ruling which overturned Roe v. Wade, and advising women on how they can maintain ‘reproductive health care.’
The release included multiple links to the site AbortionFinder.org where HHS advises they can help obtain financing for an abortion and provide legal information.
The White House promoted the department’s press release on Tuesday.
The website pointed to by the White House and HHS provides information to women, including teens, on how and where to obtain an abortion.
Users provide information on their last period and their zip code, and AbortionFinder.org will provide tips to the expectant mothers as well as the addresses of local abortion providers.
One particular portion of the site addresses teen pregnancy and advises that those who wish to do so can avoid the need for consent from their parents.
“Some states require people under 18 to involve a parent or guardian when getting an abortion,” the site reads.
“If you need to avoid involving a parent or guardian, contact the If/When/How Judicial Bypass (JB) Helpline for information about getting a judicial bypass.”
Several GOP lawmakers lashed out at the Biden administration for encouraging teenagers to circumvent their parents during a highly emotional and life-altering – for both the mother and their child – decision.
House Republican Conference chairwoman Elise Stefanik, according to Fox News, slammed the White House and insisted they “should be ashamed for helping minors bypass their parents to abort an unborn child.”
Representative Lisa McClain (R-MI) also hammered the administration over the site’s promotion.
“The White House advocating for underage loopholes in getting an abortion is beyond sickening,” McClain said. “Shame on you, Mr. President.”
Senator Steve Daines (R-MT) called the move to encourage teens to leave their parents out of the decisionmaking process “as radical as it gets.”
It “is absolutely outrageous that the Biden administration is encouraging minors to avoid talking to their parents about a dangerous, life-altering medical procedure that results in the death of their unborn child,” he told Fox.
Vice President Kamala Harris has said the administration is not only looking at providing information to women on how to obtain an abortion in light of the Supreme Court ruling, but they’re also considering ways to fund it using federal tax dollars.
When questioned on whether or not the White House would consider a “form of voucher for travel, child care services, other forms of support for people” looking to obtain an abortion across state lines, Harris revealed that it was being looked into.
“So, this is something that we are looking at,” Harris said of the abortion vouchers, noting many women are now “going to have to travel” to obtain the procedure and will “have to find daycare and pay for it.”
