Florida is in a major legal fight with Joe Biden over this sick attack on businesses

May 3, 2024

Joe Biden is trying to force businesses to comply with his extreme agenda.

He is using the government to carry out left-wing social engineering.

Now Florida is in a major legal fight with Joe Biden over this sick attack on businesses.

Biden administration forces businesses to support abortion

President Joe Biden has made boosting abortion-on-demand one of the political priorities for his administration. 

His Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued a rule that would require businesses to accommodate employee needs when getting an abortion, such as taking time off.

This rule would force a Christian bookstore to give an employee leave to get an abortion if requested.

And it applies in states where abortion is illegal. 

Biden’s EEOC twisted the language in the 2022 Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA) to claim that abortion is included under the language “pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.”

The law was originally passed to protect pregnant women by giving them “reasonable accommodations” in the workplace. 

“The PWFA also cannot be used to require an employer-sponsored health plan to pay for or cover any particular item, procedure, or treatment, including an abortion,” the EEOC said. “Given these limitations, the type of accommodation that most likely will be sought under the PWFA regarding an abortion is time off to attend a medical appointment or for recovery.”

Republican states suing EEOC over weaponizing a law to support abortion

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody (R) and 16 other states are partnering on a lawsuit against the EEOC to overturn the abortion rule.

They argue that it will force states to support abortion even when it is against state law.

“Unelected commissioners under the Biden administration are seeking to hijack protections for pregnant workers by twisting language into an illegal interpretation of the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act of 2022,” Moody said. “We are fighting back against the unprecedented, attempted mutation of these laws.”

She said that the ruling was an attempt to undermine state abortion laws.

If the states are unsuccessful in overturning the rule, they would be subject to federal lawsuits if businesses do not provide resources for abortions, even if they’re illegal in that state.

Moody is being joined by the Republican attorneys general on the lawsuit from Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and West Virginia.

Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti accused the EEOC of overstepping its authority with the rule.

“Yet in a new rule, unelected commissioners at the EEOC seek to hijack these new protections for pregnancies by requiring employers to accommodate elective abortions — something the Act clearly did not authorize,” Skrmetti’s office said. “The EEOC’s rule constitutes an unconstitutional federal overreach that infringes on existing state laws and exceeds the scope of the agency’s authority.”

Joe Biden is doing everything in his power to force his abortion-on-demand agenda on the states.
