On Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) has some harsh criticism for members of the President Coronavirus Task Force, especially Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx.
“Give them the gold watch and say thank you, exit stage left. It’s time for them to go out and be quarantined without a government paycheck and see how they like that. We’ll see how they like it. Because that’s what you’ve got. You’ve got two classes of people in America today. You’ve got the people who are the bureaucrats. Their policies have produced the division in this country, that produced an economic depression in this country. They’ve basically they’ve created societal problems, everything from more suicides, more suicide hotline calls, domestic violence, child abuse, increased use of drugs and alcohol. They’ve basically sanctioned elimination, and if it’s not full elimination, at least a curtailing of our rights. And basically, they said we would rather commit economic suicide than have freedom and let people govern themselves and take the risk of freedom. And then we could have put in reasonable policies to protect the most vulnerable. We know who the most vulnerable was from the get-go. We knew it was the elderly. We knew that it was people with these types of of morbidities and health problems. But instead they said, let’s quarantine the healthy as well. You have this quasi-martial law feel going on.”
College to begin offering abortion pill on campus
Barnard College, a partner campus of Columbia University, will be rolling out a plan in May that involves supplying students with abortion pills, the Columbia Spectator reported. The plan to provide the abortion service in the form of mifepristone abortion pills to students was initially announced in the fall of 2022 after the overturning of Roe. V Wade, according to the Spectator. However, the rollout’s delay has been partially attributed to an August 2023 grant the college received, which allowed Barnard to join a large network of primary care providers that will help steer the college through the procedures.
The Daily Caller News Foundation reports Barnard’s Primary Care Health Service will host student focus groups in upcoming weeks to find out student perspectives about the service and to identify new ways to support students considering abortion. “We wanted to make sure that we’re addressing this from every angle that will be supportive of students,” Sarah Ann Anderson-Burnett, director of Medical Services and Quality Improvement of Barnard, told the Spectator. Anderson-Burnett also said it has expanded the availability of its abortion providers to after-hours and year-round.
Barnard has six medical professionals, including two physicians and four nurse practitioners, who are capable of performing the procedure, Mariana Catallozzi, vice president for Health and Wellness and chief health officer of Barnard, told the Spectator. The school also launched a partnership with AccessNurse, a medical call center that will assist with patient concerns related to abortions.
“The training doesn’t end with the clinicians,” Anderson-Burnett told the Spectator. “Clinicians are trained on the actual provision, but there’s also an overall training that will be provided to key partners and stakeholders across the campus because we want every step, every touchpoint, to be supportive and to be trauma-informed and to be patient-valued and centered but also respect confidentiality and privacy.”
The University of Massachusetts Amherst spent more than $650,000 to stock abortion pills in March 2023 at the request of Democratic Maryland Gov. Maura Healey. Democratic New York Gov. Kathy Hochul signed a bill in May 2023 forcing college in the state to stock abortion pills on campus.
