17 States Just Blindsided Biden’s Feds

17 States Just Blindsided Biden’s Feds – Launch Major Legal Action Against Sick New Rule

More and more Republican states are showing some spine in fighting back against the bureaucratic culture war being waged by the Biden administration. Biden’s leftist minions continue to push radical values on businesses and people who have no recourse against the bureaucracy.

People have a right in this country to pursue their own values but that doesn’t give the government free reign to force those values on those who disagree. Biden has used his presidency as a tyrannical seat of power to abuse the federal system of forced regulations on businesses and employees.

A coalition of Republican states blindsided Biden’s regime with a lawsuit meant to derail his forced values compliance. The lawsuit challenges the president’s rule that forces people to bow down to an ideal that goes against their personal beliefs.

From The Daily Wire:
A group of Republican attorneys general are suing the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC ) over new rules that force employers to grant certain accommodations for their employees to get abortions.

The suit from 17 states, led by Arkansas Attorney General Tim Griffin and Tennessee Attorney General Jonathan Skrmetti, argues that the EEOC is violating numerous laws to make the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act relate to abortion. The states argue that the rule will force them to allocate resources to support elective abortions — even if elective abortions are illegal in their states.

Finally, Republican states are joining together to challenge Biden’s edicts that oppress the rights of American citizens. The federal government now must defend edicts that were not put in place by the people it governs.

The federal government has pushed far left ideals on people to the point of undermining any rational thinking. The EEOC voted 3-2 to include abortion as part of the meaning of “pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.” This prompted the lawsuit because employers must give accommodations for women to get abortions, which would include granting time off to get an abortion or immediately after an abortion.

Skrmetti said the EEOC attempt to rewrite the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act int “an abortion mandate” is illegal. He said the act, signed by Biden in 2022, was designed to protect mothers-to-be and promote healthy pregnancies by requiring employers to make “reasonable accommodations” to pregnant women.

“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.

Republican officials argue that the rule violates the conditions laid out in the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, infringes on state sovereignty, and violates the First Amendment. Republicans joined together to fight the EEOC mandate.

“I’m proud to lead the coalition fighting to protect the rule of law against this unconstitutional federal overreach,” Skrmetti said.

Republican attorneys general filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas and want the rule to be vacated and declared illegal.

Key Takeaways:

  • Republican states sued the Biden administration over a new federal abortion mandate.
  • The edict includes abortion as part of “related medical conditions” per Fed guidelines.
  • A coalition of red state officials said the rule is an “unconstitutional federal overreach.”
