Segment 4 – Biden Health Dept Moves to Erase ‘Father’ and ‘Mother’ From Childcare Law
CatholicVote has learned that the Biden administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has filed an as-yet unpublished regulatory proposal that would eliminate the words “mother,” “father,” “paternity,” and “his” and “her” from childcare-related laws. “This proposed regulation aligns with President Biden’s Executive orders” addressing “how the Federal Government should pursue a comprehensive approach to advancing equity for all, including members of the LGBTQI+ communities,” the unpublished document states.  Logan Church explains.

Having worked on over a dozen campaigns in six states, Logan dedicated her career to electing quality candidates to public office. Now, Logan continues that dedication in her work with CatholicVote as their National Political Director.
