Biden Blocks Texas’ Medicaid Coverage for New Moms while Attempting to Force Hospitals to Commit Abortions

Texas asked a federal judge Thursday, August 4, to immediately block the Biden administration’s directive forcing doctors and hospitals to commit abortions.

The state is seeking urgent protection from the Biden administration after the federal government sued Idaho under the same law at the center of Texas’ case, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA). Biden would withhold Medicare funds from hospitals that do not expand abortion under his new order. 

At the same time, the Biden administration denied Texas’ application to extend Medicaid coverage for low-income women up to six months after giving birth.

Bipartisan legislation to lengthen postpartum coverage from two to six months passed the Texas Legislature in 2021. Democrat lawmakers suspect the federal government rejected the bid because it excludes abortion. 

This blatantly political and partisan move will only have the effect of hurting Texas women and families. Texas will continue to fight the Biden administration’s radical abortion agenda and protect mothers and children in our state.
