WASHINGTON, D.C., December 10, 2020 (Operation Rescue) — It is being widely reported that Joe Biden has chosen to nominate Xavier Becerra, California’s pro-abortion Attorney General, to serve as Secretary of Health and Human Services should Biden ever assume the office of the President. The outcome of the Presidential election is still in dispute.
“If Becerra is nominated by Biden as Secretary of Health and Human Services — and that’s a big ‘if’ at this point — Operation Rescue will aggressively oppose his nomination,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Becerra will be a puppet for Planned Parenthood, and will gladly implement all of the Biden-Harris campaign promises to the Abortion Cartel to protect and expand abortion nationwide. That cannot be allowed to happen.”
Becerra was chosen by former California Governor Jerry Brown to succeed Kamala Harris as California Attorney General when she won election to the U.S. Senate in 2016. Becerra then picked up the criminal investigation initiated by Harris against two pro-life journalists, David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, whose undercover recordings exposed Planned Parenthood’s participation in an illegal scheme to traffic tissues and organs for profit, which were harvested from babies aborted at Planned Parenthood facilities. Criminal charges were filed, and that case is still ongoing.
PETITION UPDATE (12/12/2020) -
In a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court of the United States declined to hear the case filed by the state of Texas.
PETITION UPDATE (12/11/2020) -
6 states have formally joined Texas in its Supreme Court suit against Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—four battleground states who ran illegal and unconstitutional elections.
Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Utah have formally joined Texas and agree that the defendant states exploited the COVID-19 pandemic to justify unlawfully enacting last-minute changes and ignoring both federal and state election laws, thus skewing the results of the 2020 General Election.
While Missouri and 16 other states filed an amicus brief with the Court supporting Texas, 20 other states plus the District of Columbia signed an amicus brief supporting the 4 defendant states.
Please SIGN this petition and STAND with Texas, as the state seeks justice in the 2020 general election for all citizens of the United States.

The state of Texas has filed suit against Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia in the Supreme Court over changes which those states made to their election rules, claiming they violated the U.S. Constitution in the process.
Here is the central part of the argument: if Texas were to allow possible voter fraud to go unchecked in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Georgia, it would be akin to committing fraud upon the people of Texas, who cast their ballots within the framework of the law.
Indeed, this would apply equally to all citizens who voted within the framework of the law across the United States!
Thankfully, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is stepping up to vindicate the right of all Texans - and, all Americans - to have every legal vote be counted.
But, the Supreme Court has only until Thursday morning to either accept or decline hearing the case.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition, now.
The main claim that Texas makes is that Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Georgia violated the Electoral Clause of the U.S. Constitution by changing their election rules on mail-in ballots by executive or judicial action, rather than by action from the legislature.
But, America is a land of laws, and most people play by the rules. Citizens also want our state executives and judiciaries to play by the rules.
Bypassing state legislatures, even during a pandemic, cannot be justifiable as it goes against our system of checks and balances, and, ultimately, as it is the legislatures who have the power, vested by the people, to make determinations about state electoral regulations.
Texas also alleges that the defendant-states further violated the U.S. Constitution's Equal Protection Clause by applying different election rules for different parts of their respective states, meaning that election rules were not the same for every citizen of each state.
Texas approached the Supreme Court directly because in disputes between states, the Supreme Court is the court of "first impression." But, the Court only has a limited window to accept or decline hearing the case.
Please SIGN and SHARE this important petition today.

Becerra also attempted to force the pro-life National Institute of Family Life Advocates (NIFLA) to post signs in their pregnancy help centers about abortion services, in violation of their free speech rights. NIFLA sued and the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in NIFLA’s favor with a vote of 5-4 in the 2018 NIFLA v. Becerra case.
Both Harris and Becerra received thousands in campaign contributions from Planned Parenthood.
Becerra also received the majority of his funding during his 2016 Attorney General Campaign from PACs related to the Healthcare Industry, according to Open Secrets.
Senator Tom Cotton posted a statement opposing Becerra’s potential nomination on Twitter:
Xavier Becerra spent his career attacking pro-life Americans and tried to force crisis pregnancy centers to advertise abortions. He’s been a disaster in California and he is unqualified to lead HHS. I’ll be voting no, and Becerra should be rejected by the Senate.

“At this point, Biden choosing cabinet members is like a sports fan filling a roster in Fantasy Football. It is meaningless,” said Newman. “This election is still being contested in six swing states, and the Electoral College still has yet to vote. I believe strongly that the massive evidence of election fraud we have seen presented over the past weeks should be more than enough to award the Presidential contest to the rightful winner, President Donald J. Trump, barring further corrupt acts by election officials.”
