  • The Biden administration is looking to "bail out" Texas pro-abortion groups with its new actions, one former senior HHS official told CNA this week.
  • The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is 'twisting and turning and distorting the law in order to try to bail out their friends at Planned Parenthood,' said Roger Severino, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, in an interview with CNA this week.
  • Severino formerly headed the HHS civil rights office from 2017 to 2021, under President Trump's administration.
  • 17 had announced three actions as part of an effort to 'bolster' abortion in Texas, after the state's pro-life law went into effect on Sept.
