91 Lawmakers Back Bill to ‘Undo the Negligent Biden Orders Right Now’

91 Congressional lawmakers recently introduced the “Protect the UNBORN (Undo the Negligent Biden Orders Right Now) Act” to prohibit the implementation of and funding of what they’re calling “President Biden’s pro-abortion Executive Orders.”

The initiative follows a letter sent to Biden in July, urging him to rescind Executive Order 14076 (Protecting Access to Reproductive Health Care). The 57 lawmakers on the letter asked that he respect the Supreme Court’s decision and ‘refrain from taking additional action to undermine American voters.’

Biden then issued Executive Order 14079 (Securing Access to Reproductive Health Care), prompting the new legislation.

Essentially, the legislation would:

  • prohibit federal agencies from carrying out, implementing, or enforcing any part of Executive Orders 14076 and 14079, and
  • prohibit funds made available under the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022 from being used on the carrying out of any part of, implementing, or enforcing the Executive Orders.

The legislation has the support of Catholic Vote, Family Research Council, and Heritage Action.

“The Dobbs decision was a major milestone in the fight for life, but it was only the first step in protecting the unborn. The next steps include pushing for new protections for life at both the state and federal level, but they also must include pushing back against Biden administration actions aimed at circumventing state laws that protect life. Rep. Clyde’s legislation that would block President Biden’s pro-abortion executive orders is a good start on that front, and it should garner the support of all pro-life conservatives.”

Jessica Anderson, Executive Director of Heritage Action

Congressman Andrew Clyde of Georgia’s 3rd Congressional district had this to say about the measure:

“Congress cannot cowardly stand by as the leader of the free world wields his executive power to murder countless innocent unborn lives. In order to protect the precious unborn, we must block and defund the Biden Administration’s unconscionable, undemocratic, and unconstitutional Executive Orders. As an unapologetic defender of the unborn, I’m proud to introduce this legislation to prevent taxpayer dollars from funding the Left’s radical abortion agenda, preserve the integrity of our nation’s highest court, and protect the sanctity of human life.”
