Biden Plans To Expand HIPAA To Abortions

Well, of course he does, because abortion is the number one sacrament under the Democratic Party. Let’s start with the New York Times

Trump and Allies Forge Plans to Increase Presidential Power in 2025

Donald Trump and his allies are planning a sweeping expansion of presidential power over the machinery of government if voters return him to the White House in 2025, reshaping the structure of the executive branch to concentrate far greater authority directly in his hands.

Their plans to centralize more power in the Oval Office stretch far beyond the former president’s recent remarks that he would order a criminal investigation into his political rival, President Joe Biden, signaling his intent to end the post-Watergate norm of Justice Department independence from White House political control.

There’s a lot of this in the NY Times article, which actually misses the point in that Trump wants to decrease the power of federal agencies, weeding out the extras and those who have become partisan tools against the People for the Democratic Party. Further, criminal investigations? You know that all these criminal attacks against Trump come from the highest levels, which must include Biden and his top advisors. But, the same Times never seems to notice Biden’s expansion of presidential power, such as

Biden’s HIPAA expansion for abortion draws criticism, lawsuit threats

The Biden administration’s effort to wield the nation’s premier health-privacy law to protect abortion rights is under fire from Republicans who accuse the president of overreaching — and from Democrats who call it too weak.

The Department of Health and Human Services is preparing to release a final rule later this year that would expand the protections of the decadesold Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, with the aim of shielding people who seek, obtain or provide abortions from red state probes — one of the most concrete steps the administration has taken to defend abortion rights since the Supreme Court ended Roe v. Wade a year ago.

But conservatives, including Republican attorneys general and former Trump administration officials, say the move would violate states’ rights as well as the Supreme Court’s Dobbs decision — and would be ripe for a lawsuit.

There is “absolutely” a potential for legal challenges, said Roger Severino, who served as the head of HHS’ Office for Civil Rights under former President Donald Trump and is now vice president of domestic policy at the Heritage Foundation. “I would imagine, at the very least, that a challenge would come from state attorneys general, because the administration is interfering with their ability to enforce their own laws.”

In Democrat World unfettered abortion must be protected at all costs. There can be no restrictions at all, and the ability to get one anytime anyplace should be easy.

Dozens of top Democrats in the House and Senate, meanwhile, say the draft rules are inadequate for a post-Roe environment in which Republican-controlled states are seeking to more aggressively target abortion providers and anyone who helps a patient circumvent state restrictions.

The attacks from both sides highlight the precarious path the Biden administration has tried to navigate since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade last summer. With no hope of restoring abortion protections through legislation in a divided Congress, the White House has largely leaned on rulemaking and executive orders — many of which are drawing criticism from progressives and the right.

That sounds like an expansion of executive power, NY Times. And the Supreme Court ruling was rather specific: this is a States Rights issue. Not a federal one.

In a letter to HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra shared first with POLITICO, Democrats led by Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Patty Murray (D-Wash.) make several demands, including that the administration require law enforcement to “obtain a warrant before forcing doctors, pharmacists, and other health care providers to turn over their patients’ [protected health information].”

Interesting, since Los Federales required employees to share their private medical information on whether or not they took a Wuhan Flu vaccine. We’re supposed to leave it all up to women, but, the government, mostly Democrats required them to wear masks, take a vaccine, and locked them down, followed by implementing work from home.

    Medical privacy arguments were stronger before the federal government and all the state governments upheld forcing everyone to carry vaccine cards to prove to total strangers that they had had an invasive medical procedure.

    I would be in favor of strengthening those rules again even at the expense of applying them to abortions. But not if abortions are the only medical procedures that are protected. All medical information should be protected and it should be protected first from the government, then from health insurance companies, then from coerced private disclosure.

    Democratic party activists only want to apply civil rights to protect sexual behavior. No one is allowed a right to privacy unless they are aborting, getting AIDS or engaging in LGBTQ sex.

  2. Dana says:

    The HITECH Act of 2009 required that all new medical records be digitized, so that physicians could more easily and promptly obtain a patient’s previous medical records if the patient changed doctors, and encouraged the digitization of past medical records. Some of us noted that if medical records could be simply sent over the internet from one health care provider to another, then medical records would become searchable, and that people other than health care providers would be able to work around protections to check records. After all, wouldn’t a major corporation which was considering an applicant for a really significant position want to know if he had ever been treated for a mental illness or had an undisclosed health problem which could limit his effectiveness?

    It didn’t even have to be for a significant position? With companies having to shell out big bucks for employee health care, wouldn’t it be useful to know if an applicant had a chronic medical problem which would drive up costs? Wouldn’t you want to know if a prospective employee was HIV+?

    So, if the Biden Administration are trying to keep nefarious states from accessing abortion records, aren’t they concomitantly saying that the supposed safeguards on the digitized records isn’t what we were all assured it would be?

    • Professor Hale says:

      And, as the Biden Administration has taught us, no medical record is truely private if the governement has access to it. It was only a short while ago that the Air Force released medical records of former Air Force members who were now members of the opposition political party. The whole point of digital medical resords was to make it easier for teh government to access them. It is a critical element of the proposed “death boards” and reducing the cost of health care by reducing the people who were using it all up.

    Mr Teach typed: In Democrat World unfettered abortion must be protected at all costs. There can be no restrictions at all, and the ability to get one anytime, anyplace should be easy.

    Our Mr Teach exaggerates once again. Recall Roe v Wade, that Democrats lived with for some 50 years?

    In Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decided that the right to privacy implied in the 14th Amendment protected abortion as a fundamental right. However, the government retained the power to regulate or restrict abortion access depending on the stage of pregnancy. And after fetal viability, outright bans on abortion were permitted if they contained exceptions to preserve life and health.

    In practice, abortions were permitted during the first trimester (12 weeks) and states could ban the procedures at the point of fetal viability outside the womb (~ 22 weeks), as long as the potential mother’s health is protected.

    Over 90% of abortions take place in the first trimester.

    The reactionary right’s insistence that abortion should be regulated by states is belied by the federal Republicun’s push for a federal law.

    The right does not wish to regulate abortion but to ban it, but haven’t the balls to admit that. Be men! Don’t lie – just enact outright bans!

        Solid argument!! Why do you, in absentia, defend Mr Teach’s outright lies?

        Just because you were assraped as a child does not give you an excuse to assrape children now!! Does your mommy find you your victims? Is your church a good cover?

        • drowningpuppies says:

          WAAAAH! Cries the inbred nonsensical pedo baby killer.

      Says the ghoul who wants no abortion regulations up to birth! Admit you goal is to push abortion to “after” birth and even up to ten. Be a man! Admit you enjoy murdering tiny people and want unfettered access to do so. Then we canj discuss your obsession with grooming kids for homosexuality and sex “transition”.

      You leftists are immoral animals.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        You seem all aflutter that you were accused of wanting to ban abortions. Do you not? I thought you believed that a fertilized ovum was a person. You’re not willing to compromise when it comes to baby murder are you?? My apologies if you are not interested in banning abortion.

        Again, over 90% of US abortions take place in the first trimester. I was comfortable with Roe v. Wade.

        I know of no one who wants to murder children between birth and year ten.

        Why do YOU believe the Republicuns won’t outright ban abortions?

        You’re a lying Republicun. And so angry and vile! Have a nice day!

    Teach has shown us all that is is completely open to flexing on the date when abortion becomes murder
    He believes that the fetus belongs to the state and that BIG GOVERNMENT should be in control of female bodies.

      Most of us who believe abortion kills a human are willing to “flex” on the date abortion becomes murder. We have to be because UNLIKE YOU FOOLS we realize we cannot say with absolute certainty when that is so common sense dictates flexibility.. You would rather murder a baby than let a non viable fetus escape alive.

      We believe the “:fetus” belongs to the parents like any other child. Do you think that fact means the parent has the right to murder the child?
      None of us believe BIG GOVERNMENT should control female bodies but we do believe the law should protect and defend the live of children and babies too. Don’t you?

    The low IQ Republicun state legislatures are looking for ways to punish women who would dare drive from KY to Illinois for an abortion. Or from MO to IL, or from ID to MT.

    Although interfering with Americans’ travel between the states is clearly unconstitutional (Commerce Clause and Crandall v Nevada (1868)), the new Republicun SCROTUS can find a way. After all, abortion is the murder of babies and children.

    • Professor Hale says:

      If Democrat and Republican party voters work together to strip power away from federal government and state government, then it won’t matter as much who wins elections.

      But let’s be real. Democrats love having that much control. They just want to use it to promote their own agenda. Democratic party politicians never give up power to the people.

    As cameras rolled, Biden told the president of Israel that he doesn’t remember “two-thirds” of the past 75 years since Israel was established. Most of those, of course, Biden served in the United States Senate.

    Yes, he actually said that.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    President Biden was using self-deprecating humor.

    What is Trump’s excuse?
