WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) – President Joe Biden has threatened to veto a resolution to formally end the federal state of emergency (SOE) for COVID-19, following a narrow Senate victory for the measure.

On January 14, the Biden administration issued a 90-day extension to the SOE, allowing for the continuation of various executive actions and federal spending pertaining to the pandemic. A month later, Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS) introduced a resolution to end it, arguing that “with COVID cases and hospitalizations on the decline, 94 percent of Americans having immunity to COVID, mask mandates falling by the wayside, and 70 percent of Americans agreeing ‘it’s time we accept that COVID is here to stay’ and that ‘we just need to get on with our lives,’ it’s clear we need new approach to COVID as we learn to live with it.”

Politico reports that the Senate voted 48-47 to approve the resolution along party lines Thursday, with Republicans invoking a provision of the National Emergencies Act to pass it via simple majority.

Joe Biden’s pick to replace the retiring Justice Stephen Breyer on the U.S. Supreme Court is abortion defender D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first black woman nominated to the nation's highest court ever.

By choosing Brown Jackson, Biden is fulfilling two campaign promises at the same time: first, to use every tool at his disposal to defend and promote the killing of the most innocent; and, second, to make the nation’s highest court more "diverse."

Of course, Biden could have achieved "diversity" by different means (and, as a "Catholic," he should have), but, as throughout the rest of tenure in office, he has chosen to pursue the deadly path of promoting abortion.

And, make no mistake: Planned Parenthood and NARAL are ecstatic about Brown Jackson.

SIGN and SHARE this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Unlike most previous nominees to the Supreme Court, Brown Jackson has a judicial history of supporting abortion - which should be enough to cause Senators to reject her.

In the 1990s, she wrote an amicus brief defending a Massachusetts law that banned protests outside of abortion clinics. Thankfully, the law was ruled unconstitutional in 2000, but it shows how Brown Jackson intends to use the law to silence free speech so that the killing can continue without protest.

Pro-lifers are unanimous in their opposition to Brown Jackson, while the pro-abortionists are undivided in their zeal for her nomination.

SIGN and SHARE this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

Carrie Severino, president of the pro-life Judicial Crisis Network, warned of an imminent free speech threat, stating that in her "buffer-zone" amicus brief, Brown Jackson "repeatedly disparaged the peaceful and often prayerful clinic protesters as engaging in ‘in-your-face’ and ‘chaotic’ activity that somehow fell short of ‘pure speech.’"

And, Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List stated her organization's opposition to Brown Jackson's nomination, saying: "She is on record opposing the free speech rights of pro-life advocates pleading to save lives outside abortion centers and supporting the false claim that abortion is ‘health care.’"

But, the country's top abortion groups are celebrating Brown Jackson’s appointment.

Planned Parenthood CEO Alexis McGill Johnson wrote in a tweet addressed to Jackson: "We can’t wait to see the fantastic work you will do and will be here to support you along the way,"

And, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Mini Timmaraju agreed.

"Judge Jackson … has a demonstrated record of defending and upholding our constitutional rights and fundamental freedoms — including reproductive freedom," Timmaraju said. "We are confident that she will be a voice for justice, equity, and freedom on the Court in the decades to come."

Thank you for SIGNING and SHARING this petition which urges all U.S. Senators to reject abortion activist Brown Jackson's nomination to the Supreme Court.

“The robust powers this emergency declaration provides the federal government are no longer necessary and Congress must debate, and ultimately repeal them, in order to begin the process of unwinding the powers the government took hold of during the peak of the crisis,” Marshall argued on the Senate floor.

In response, the White House declared that it “strongly opposes Senate Joint Resolution 38,” claiming it would “unnecessarily and abruptly curtail the ability of the Administration to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic” and vowing to veto it should it reach Biden’s desk.

It’s unlikely the measure would get that far, however, since it would first have to pass the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. Further, Republicans lack the congressional votes to override a presidential veto.

That said, a House vote could be closer than many suspect, given Democrats’ recent backtracking from the heavy-handed COVID policies of the last two years. 

In recent months, administration members and their allies have begun to concede several claims they had previously deemed “misinformation.” In January, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention abruptly halved its recommended isolation period for the COVID-infected. White House COVID czar Dr. Anthony Fauci admitted “if you look at the children who are hospitalized, many of them are hospitalized with COVID, as opposed to because of COVID.” Former U.S. Food & Drug Administration commissioner (and current Pfizer board member) Scott Gottlieb admitted that “cloth masks aren’t gonna provide a lot of protection.” More recently, Democrat consultants have privately urged the party to distance themselves from lockdowns, advice taken by various governors and mayors across the country.

Many of the policies championed by Democrats to curb COVID have proven to be either ineffective or counterproductive, including lockdowns, masking, and promotion of COVID vaccines. Meanwhile, approximately $740 billion in previously approved COVID emergency spending remains unused.

While the president’s efforts to force Americans to take COVID shots have been met with legal setbacks, he has signaled that he isn’t giving up yet.

“We will never give up on vaccinating more Americans,” Biden declared during his State of the Union address this week. “We will continue vaccinating the world. We’ve sent 475 million vaccine doses to 112 countries, more than any other nation. And we won’t stop.”
