March 4, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – LifeSite has officially launched a 50-state campaign calling on U.S. Senators to reject the nomination of Dr. “Rachel” Levine for Assistant Secretary of Health and, as a resident of Pennsylvania, it has my full support.

While many Americans were first introduced to Dr. Levine last week after he refused to answer Sen. Rand Paul’s question regarding whether minors should be subjected to dangerous hormone therapy and transgender procedures during the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee’s confirmation hearing, I’ve had the sincere displeasure of becoming acquainted with Biden’s handpicked nominee here on the homefront.

For the last year, I, along with friends and family members, lived under the excessively oppressive coronavirus restrictions implemented by Levine’s Department of Health here in Pennsylvania, and now fear that our entire nation could be headed down a similar path at the federal level.

Since last March, Levine, a man who has become notable for being transgender rather than being a competent public servant, has been responsible for implementing what seemed like never-ending, arbitrary shutdowns of Pennsylvania businesses throughout 2020. He has also introduced laughably absurd outdoor and at-home mask mandates and even state-issued advice on how to “safely” pursue romantic and sexual relationships in the midst of a pandemic.

Additionally, Orwellian action was taken on Levine’s part to develop protocols that made it possible for businesses deemed “non-essential” to be turned in to the state for not complying with Pennsylvania’s unconstitutional, livelihood-destroying lockdown orders.

Most concerning, though, is Levine’s own disastrous judgment, and unconscionable handling of Pennsylvania’s nursing homes.

Taking a page from the Cuomo playbook, Levine, under the watchful eye of liberal Governor Tom Wolf, made Pennsylvania one of only five states to mandate all nursing homes and certain care facilities admit patients who tested positive for COVID-19, regardless of the threat it posed to our state’s most vulnerable. When data showed that 70 percent of COVID-linked deaths from those facilities were a direct result of the policy, Levine’s own mother was immediately removed from one of them.

UPDATE (3/10/21) - 

The House has passed the $1.9T COVID relief package. For the first time in 44 years, the Democrats voted against amendments to prevent taxpayer dollars from funding abortion domestically.

In a complete reversal of the protections given to the unborn by the Hyde Amendment and the Trump Administration, billions of dollars will now be spent by the U.S. federal government to fund and promote abortion in the United States and abroad.

Joe Biden championed the rescission of the Hyde Amendment during the campaign, and has said that he will sign the bill on Friday.

________________________________________________________________

The relief bill which just passed the House contains funding for abortion, both inside and outside the United States, and even sets up a $50 million slush fund for Planned Parenthood!

This is outrageous!

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition telling all U.S. Senators not to fund abortion with the new COVID relief bill.

AND, after you SIGN, please TAKE A MINUTE TO DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR SENATORS by clicking on the link below.

The bill just passed the House and now goes to the Senate, so we must ACT NOW to tell our Senators never to allow abortion-tainted funding to fuel our nation's recovery!

The Democrats' use of COVID-19 as a pretext to fund abortion is unconscionable and disgusting in equal measures!

Americans do not want our politicians to use COVID relief as an excuse to fund abortion. A recent poll shows that a solid majority of Americans (58%) of ALL political backgrounds oppose the use of taxpayer funding for abortion.*

But, the Democrats' relief bill conspicuously leaves out Hyde Amendment protections against domestic funding of abortion!

Not only that, the bill is actually a revolting funding wishlist for abortion projects at home and abroad, including:

  • $750 million for U.S. community health centers and "global health" finance WITHOUT the protections of the Hyde Amendment.
  • $50 million for Title X which could be used by abortionists like Planned Parenthood as a bailout cash reserve.
  • Giving Planned Parenthood access to small business relief.
  • Further funding of COBRA insurance under Obamacare which funds abortion with taxpayer dollars.

Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition telling U.S. Senators not to fund abortion with the new COVID relief bill.

After you SIGN, please CLICK HERE TO CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS.

Thank you!

The deadly policy, however, stayed in place.

It’s disturbing, though not at all surprising, that the left no longer even tries to hide its collective desire to prioritize gender confusion over professional qualifications when filling important vacancies in our government. If not for identity politics, we wouldn’t even know Levine’s name, and he certainly wouldn’t be in contention for any leadership role in our federal government.

The last thing the American people need at HHS right now are leaders who ignore science, prioritize politics over public health, and put lives and livelihoods at risk, just so Biden can earn “woke” points.

Take it from me: Levine is entirely unfit to serve. The Senate should promptly reject his nomination.
