    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 1. Purpose. 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. 2. Policy. 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...

    The Lietieunent Governor of North Carolina, Daniel Forest, is reported to have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General William Barr requesting that the Department of Justice investigate the “collusive attack on the integrity of North Carolina’s elections by the North Carolina State Board of Elections and the office of North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein.” Forest sent the letter yesterday, 24 September. It further notes that “liberal groups from Washington, D.C. have swarmed into North Carolina to file lawsuit after lawsuit against North Carolina, seeking to change, by judicial and executive fiat, laws that were constitutionally passed by our General Assembly.” Forest also states that “this week, in the case of N.C. Alliance for Retired Americans, et al. v. N.C. State Board of Elections, et al. the Democratic Attorney General and the Democratic-controlled Board of Elections entered into a collusive agreement with the Democratic plaintiffs to enact, without the consent of the legislature, wholesale changes to the absentee ballot laws of North Carolina.” Forest notes in his letter that this is especially concerning because North Carolina’s Democratic G governor, Roy Cooper, “has fought tooth-and-nail against the Board of Elections being and independent body rather than a partisan body under his complete control.” Forest asks that the DOJ review these actions to determine whether any federal laws may have been violated, as these actions will no doubt impact the Presidential, Senatorial, and Congressional elections in North Carolina. He further asks that the DOJ review whether this election interference necessitates federal intervention under the Guarantee Clause of Article IV, Section IV of the U.S Consititution.

    The few troops that went to Syria are far less than those being withdrawn from Iraq and Afghanistan and won't be able to stay once Trump pulls us out of Iraq completely. And don't think t isn't obvious that you lost the argument so you changed the subject.

    You can't be this obtuse. More are coming home than are going out, Trump is leaving Afghanistan completely and Iraq completely but not all at once, he is also decreasing the number of troops in other places. But they don't leave units overseas permanently so they constantly send out new units to replace old units that are coming home.

    She is not my choice but she will be a MASSIVE improvement over Darth Bader and hopefully Trump will get several more vacancies to fill in his next term so he balance out the imperfections of his picks.

    LOL I have not made any claim that will age well or poorly, Trump MAY nominate her. You have posted that it has already happened when it has not based on anonymous sources, your thread stank the moment you posted it.

    You had better be more careful about reading so you don't fall for the lie. Both of those links are also "anonymous sources". But if you are not illiterate then you may be a fellow liar to devil. Trump has not announced a choice yet and anonymous claims in the MSM prove nothing

    That's a nice piece of old news about what was not set yet. But I know you read my threads and know better, you are just a liar. With the Pentagon expected to reduce troops levels in Afghanistan down to 4,500 by the November elections, and with the still negotiated US-Taliban peace deal facilitating this, on Tuesday a Pentagon official told Congress it can expect American presence there to be completely ended by May 2021.

    They will all be gone next spring, the Pentagon just told that to Congress. Until then there will continue to be troop rotations and the trolls will continue to misrepresent them.

    LOL Of course there are scheduled deployments, it's called troop rotation. Trump is not bringing all of the troops home at once but I have repeatedly posted the proof that Trump is withdrawing thousands of troops from many countries. All you have is bunk.
