EXECUTIVE ORDER

– – – – – – –

Protecting Vulnerable NEWBORN AND INFANT children

     By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered as follows:

Section 1Purpose.  Every infant born alive, no matter the circumstances of his or her birth, has the same dignity and the same rights as every other individual and is entitled to the same protections under Federal law.  Such laws include the Emergency Medical Treatment and Labor Act (EMTALA), 42 U.S.C. 1395dd, which guarantees, in hospitals that have an emergency department, each individual’s right to an appropriate medical screening examination and to either stabilizing treatment or an appropriate transfer.  They also include section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (Rehab Act), 29 U.S.C. 794, which prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities by programs and activities receiving Federal funding.  In addition, the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, 1 U.S.C. 8, makes clear that all infants born alive are individuals for purposes of these and other Federal laws and are therefore afforded the same legal protections as any other person.  Together, these laws help protect infants born alive from discrimination in the provision of medical treatment, including infants who require emergency medical treatment, who are premature, or who are born with disabilities.  Such infants are entitled to meaningful and non-discriminatory access to medical examination and services, with the consent of a parent or guardian, when they present at hospitals receiving Federal funds.

Despite these laws, some hospitals refuse the required medical screening examination and stabilizing treatment or otherwise do not provide potentially lifesaving medical treatment to extremely premature or disabled infants, even when parents plead for such treatment.  Hospitals might refuse to provide treatment to extremely premature infants — born alive before 24 weeks of gestation — because they believe these infants may not survive, may have to live with long-term disabilities, or may have a quality-of-life deemed to be inadequate.  Active treatment of extremely premature infants has, however, been shown to improve their survival rates.  And the denial of such treatment, or discouragement of parents from seeking such treatment for their children, devalues the lives of these children and may violate Federal law.

Sec. 2Policy.  It is the policy of the United States to recognize the human dignity and inherent worth of every newborn or other infant child, regardless of prematurity or disability, and to ensure for each child due protection under the law.

Sec. 3.  (a)  The Secretary of Health and Human Services (Secretary) shall ensure that individuals responsible for all programs and activities under his jurisdiction that receive Federal funding are aware of their obligations toward infants, including premature infants or infants with disabilities, who have an emergency medical condition in need of stabilizing treatment, under EMTALA and section 504 of the Rehab Act, as interpreted consistent with the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.  In particular, the Secretary shall ensure that individuals responsible for such programs and activities are aware that they are not excused from complying with these obligations, including the obligation to provide an appropriate medical screening examination and stabilizing treatment or transfer, when extremely premature infants are born alive or infants are born with disabilities.  The Secretary shall also ensure that individuals responsible for such programs and activities are aware that they may not unlawfully discourage parents from seeking medical treatment for their infant child solely because of their infant child’s disability.  The Secretary shall further ensure that individuals responsible for such programs and activities are aware of their obligations to provide stabilizing treatment that will allow the infant patients to be transferred to a more suitable facility if appropriate treatment is not possible at the initial location.

(b)  The Secretary shall, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, ensure that Federal funding disbursed by the Department of Health and Human Services is expended in full compliance with EMTALA and section 504 of the Rehab Act, as interpreted consistent with the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, as reflected in the policy set forth in section 2 of this order.

(i)   The Secretary shall, as appropriate and to the fullest extent permitted by law, investigate complaints of violations of applicable Federal laws with respect to infants born alive, including infants who have an emergency medical condition in need of stabilizing treatment or infants with disabilities whose parents seek medical treatment for their infants.  The Secretary shall also clarify, in an easily understandable format, the process by which parents and hospital staff may submit such complaints for investigation under applicable Federal laws.

(ii)  The Secretary shall take all appropriate enforcement action against individuals and organizations found through investigation to have violated applicable Federal laws, up to and including terminating Federal funding for non-compliant programs and activities.

(c)  The Secretary shall, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, prioritize the allocation of Department of Health and Human Services discretionary grant funding and National Institutes of Health research dollars for programs and activities conducting research to develop treatments that may improve survival — especially survival without impairment — of infants born alive, including premature infants or infants with disabilities, who have an emergency medical condition in need of stabilizing treatment.

(d)  The Secretary shall, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law, prioritize the allocation of Department of Health and Human Services discretionary grant funding to programs and activities, including hospitals, that provide training to medical personnel regarding the provision of life-saving medical treatment to all infants born alive, including premature infants or infants with disabilities, who have an emergency medical condition in need of stabilizing treatment.

(e)  The Secretary shall, as necessary and consistent with applicable law, issue such regulations or guidance as may be necessary to implement this order.

Sec. 4General Provisions.  (a)  Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

(i)   the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

(ii)  the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

(b)  This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

(c)  This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

Transcript: Presidential Message on the National Day of Prayer and Return, 2020

Posted by on 1:28 pm in News | Comments Off on Transcript: Presidential Message on the National Day of Prayer and Return, 2020

Presidential Message on the National Day of Prayer and Return, 2020

On this inaugural National Day of Prayer and Return, the First Lady and I join millions of Christians here in the United States and around the world in prayer, as we turn our hearts to our Lord and Savior.

Our great Nation was founded by men and women of deep and abiding faith—a faith that has stood the test of time.  Four hundred years ago, early American settlers trusted their lives to His providence and braved a voyage to a New World.  From the pilgrims who sought His protection aboard the Mayflower to the countless believers who today bow their heads to ask for His guidance during these unprecedented times, our country continues to turn to the Lord.  Following in our ancestors’ footsteps we continue the “firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence” that provides us enduring strength and reassurance in our times of need.

The trials and tribulations the American people have faced over the past several months have been great.  Yet, as we have seen time and again, the resolve of our citizenry—fortified by our faith in God—has guided us through these hardships and helped to unite us as one Nation under God.  As we continue to combat the challenges ahead of us, we must remember the sage words of President George Washington during his first Presidential Address: “propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained.”  As a country and a people, let us renew our commitment to these abiding and timeless principles.

Today, I am pleased to join my voice to yours in thanking God for blessing this nation with great power and responsibility.  With reverence, humility, and thanksgiving, we beg for His continued guidance and protection.

Governor Evers Crosses the Line—Again 

This week on Tuesday, September 22, 2020, Governor Evers declared another 60-day statewide Public Health Emergency (Executive Order #90) that begins today and continues through November 21, 2020.  He also issued Emergency Order #1 which mandates “face coverings” (aka, “masks”) statewide. This is the governor’s third statewide 60-day emergency declaration dealing with COVID-19.  Constitutional experts have told us the second and this third statewide emergency declaration are illegal. Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) have already filed a lawsuit against the second emergency declaration. It was filed in Polk County on behalf of three plaintiffs. Listen to WILL’s president and General Counsel Rick Esenberg discuss the lawsuit and the governor’s most recent emergency declaration HERE.

Sample Ballots Now Available
And what’s this we hear about referenda questions? 

Wondering what’s on your ballot? Wonder no more! Sample ballots are now available for you to look over online. CLICK HERE, enter your address, and a sample of your November 3, 2020 ballot will appear for you to look over.
NOT ALL BALLOTS will include a referendum question(s) such as these —
Julaine Appling explains, “Probably 99% of the referenda on your November 3 ballot, unless you have something coming from a school district to increase the mil rate or allocate extra funding, etc., are “nonbinding” referenda. They are “advisory” referenda only, meaning they are put there to get a sense of the will of the people on a particular issue. Many referenda questions on issues such as the legalization of marijuana, redistricting (such as the example above), and more, are put out there by liberal progressives who are trying to make people think these are binding referenda. Again, they are NOT binding and, in my opinion, don’t need a vote at all.”

President Trump Says He Will Sign Historic “Born Alive” Executive Order 

From The Hill: “President Trump on Wednesday announced he will sign an executive order he says would ensure all babies born alive, including those born prematurely or that survive abortions, receive medical care, in an appeal to conservative and religious voters.
‘Today I am announcing that I will be signing the born alive executive order to assure that all precious babies born alive, no matter their circumstances, receive the medical care that they deserve. This is our sacrosanct moral duty,’ Trump said.

“The text of the order was not available after the announcement, making it unclear what it actually does. Trump said his administration would also increase federal funding for neonatal research.”

“Protecting life is always right regardless of when or where,” commented Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action. “President Trump has an extraordinary track record of matching his actions to his words on this foundational issue. As an organization dedicated to protecting the sanctity of human life, we are incredibly grateful for this pro-life announcement.”

Federal Judge Extends Absentee Ballot Deadlines
Wisconsin Legislature Appeals Ruling

A federal judge in Wisconsin has extended the deadline for an absentee ballot to be mailed and to be received by the clerks’ offices. If this order stands, then it impacts the upcoming November 3 election.  The judge ordered that absentee ballots will count if they are postmarked by November 3 and received by November 9. Currently, ballots must be received in the clerks’ offices by the close of the polls on Election Day, which is 8 p.m. statewide.

The order also extends the voter registration deadline to Oct. 21 and allows those who make absentee ballot requests on time but who don’t receive them in time for Election Day to get replacement ballots via email or through the state’s website between Oct 21-29.

In addition, poll workers in the state will be allowed to work in any county rather than just where they reside.
READ MORE HERE

On Wednesday, September 23, in a not-so-surprising response to the order, the Wisconsin legislature appealed the ruling. Read more HERE.

Julaine Appling, WFC president, responds, “This is the right thing for the state legislature to do at this time. Given how close we are to the election, these changes ordered by this federal judge just further confuse people in an already confusing time. Thank you to the senate and assembly leadership for stepping up and getting this done.  Conservatives need to push back hard against efforts to suppress the conservative vote by keeping people confused about how and when to vote.”

Even in This, God Is in Control

Posted by on 4:34 pm in News, Wisconsin Family Connection Transcript | Comments Off on Even in This, God Is in Control

2020 | Week of September 21 | Radio Transcript #1378

God assures us that nothing happens outside His knowledge and control, down to knowing the number of hairs on our head and even when a sparrow falls from a nest. And He even appoints the day of death—and that is why we must trust Him as we deal with and attempt to process yet another unique twist and turn in this wild ride called 2020.  God not only knew Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg would die on Friday, September 18, He in eternity past foreordained that event to happen, even knowing how crazy this year has already been in America and around the world.  What we must do know is to pray that in the midst of all this, we as believers know how this affects us and understand what we can do to help ensure good comes from this turn of events.

First and foremost, I send to the Justice’s family my sincere condolences and my prayers. This is a difficult time, no matter the age of the loved one or the circumstances surrounding the death.

Now, what does all this mean as we stand about forty days from a major presidential election that is already fraught with more drama than one can imagine?  I think hearing from a noted attorney, in this case, Michael Farris, CEO and general counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom, gives us some perspective. Farris wrote on his Facebook the following:

“Why has the Supreme Court Become So Politicized? It would shock the Framers of the Constitution to learn that filling a vacancy on the Supreme Court would become a leading issue in a presidential election…

“For many people, including me, judicial selection (especially for the Supreme Court) is the most important issue….Why? The answer is self-evident.

“The Supreme Court has made and continues to make some of the most important and most controversial policy decisions for our country. The Supreme court legalized abortion nationwide. It wasn’t a vote of Congress or the people. The Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage. It wasn’t a vote of Congress and [was] contrary to a vote of the people in nearly every state. This last term, the Supreme Court expanded the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to include sexual orientation and gender identity in the protected classes. Congress did no such thing.

“These are policy decisions. And they have been made by unelected judges. These judges joining these opinions claim these were decisions that were required by the text of the Constitution or law. But few seriously believe that Congress and the states intended to legalize abortion or same-sex marriage when they crafted the 14th Amendment in 1868.

“The public says it correctly. The Supreme Court legalized abortion and same-sex marriage—words that describe a legislative and not a judicial act.

“President Trump, and others who support the idea of appointing judges who are originalists, are actually seeking to de-politicize the Supreme Court. We want judges who follow the law, not make the law. If Roe v. Wade is reversed by originalist judges, for example, that does not ban abortion nationwide. It is not just the opposite policy decision. Reversing Roe v. Wade simply puts the issue back to the states. It takes the judiciary out of this political issue.

“[This] falls pretty much along party lines. Democrats generally want living constitutionalists—a philosophy that allows and encourages judges to make policy decisions rather than leaving those to the legislative branches or the votes of the people themselves. Republicans generally promise to appoint judges who want to de-politicize the judiciary by following the original meaning of the Constitution and laws.”

Farris closes by saying President Trump will be accused of politicizing the Supreme Court, but the Supreme Court, he says, did it to itself.

That pretty much sums up how we are all impacted by the death of Justice Ginsburg. Decisions made by the justice who will fill her vacancy on the court could be there for decades, being part of, or maybe even being the deciding vote, on issues that are sometimes truly matters of life and death and truth versus falsehood.

This is not a time for Christians to sit on the sidelines. This is the time for Christians to pray faithfully and earnestly for God to intervene in the affairs of this nation—because we know He is in control of it all. And then, we must be sure to vote and to encourage others to join us. Elections have consequences. And so very much is at stake.

For Wisconsin Family Council, this is Julaine Appling, reminding you the Prophet Hosea said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.”

Please Pass the Politics 

From the pen of Julaine Appling, WFA president, “From the time I was six or seven, I’ve been involved in elections.  Yes, you heard me right.  My mother, while she never ran for office, was always involved with the political scene.  She found it intolerable, for instance, that when she and my dad moved to Georgia in the early 1950s that the state had only one political party.  So, Mom set out to do what she could to help bring in a second party.

“I vividly remember walking around neighborhoods with Mom, passing out campaign literature, putting up yard signs and enlisting people to help with candidates.  People don’t believe this, but on presidential election years, our whole family would watch the party conventions on TV.”

President Trump Doubles Down on Pro-Life Message 

From LifeSite News:
“As I seek re-election this November, I need your help in contrasting my bold pro-life leadership with Joe Biden’s abortion extremism,” Trump says in a letter to pro-life supporters.
“The Democratic Party unequivocally supports abortion-on-demand, up until the moment of birth, and even infanticide — leaving babies to die after failed abortions. Joe Biden’s embrace of this extreme position is most evidenced by his support for taxpayer funding of abortion on-demand. Forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions is an abhorrent position that must be defeated at the ballot box. Joe Biden has doubled down on these positions with his selection of abortion extremist Kamala Harris as his running mate.”

In the same letter, Trump promises to “fully defund the big abortion industry such as Planned Parenthood…”
Read more HERE.

“Planned Parenthood doesn’t deserve one penny of taxpayer money,” says Julaine Appling, WFA president, “This organization still receives over $500 million dollars in public funding. I’m definitely encouraged by the President’s statement, but I’m not sure why he doesn’t do the defunding right now instead of waiting. It’s within his power to make it happen now and by so doing he saves many unborn American lives.


Girls Not Required to Compete Against Boys, Court Says
  Really great news, says Appling
From LifeSite News:
“The US Supreme Court’s decision to write transgenderism into federal nondiscrimination law does not create a right for gender-confused male students to compete against actual girls, the US Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) concluded in a letter explaining how the divisive ruling factors into its own judgment.

“LGBT activist groups such as the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) have assailed the suit as a ‘desperate attempt’ to ‘strip transgender students of the rights every student deserves and policies that provide them the same opportunities as every other student.’ But science backs up the plaintiffs’ concerns.”
READ MORE HERE

Julaine Appling, WFA president, says, “The recent court decision is just plain wrong; it’s already been positively cited several times in other lawsuits. So this is really great news from the Trump administration’s Department of Education and is another reminder that elections have very real consequences.
