WATCH: Becerra and AOC Throw the Rule of Law Under the Bus in New Remarks on Abortion Pill Decision

On Friday evening, a Texas federal court ruled to suspend the FDA’s approval of mifepristone, one of the two drugs used in combination to cause an abortion. The ruling is paused for seven days so the federal government may appeal.


As we reported:

U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ruled in favor of pro-life medical groups challenging the FDA’s approval of the drug. He ruled that “both the initial approval of the pills in 2000 as well as more recent FDA decisions allowing them to be prescribed via telemedicine, sent by mail and dispensed at retail pharmacies, are unlawful,” according to the report.

That caused a meltdown of monumental proportions on the left, with calls from people like Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) to ignore the ruling. AOC said it was up to the Biden administration to “choose” whether or not to enforce it. Wyden said that Biden “can and must ignore this ruling.”

Democrats are throwing the rule of law — the very foundation of our Republic — under the bus.

Now, the Biden administration is fully flying in the face of the law as well. Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra was asked by CNN’s Dana Bash if they were taking ignoring the law off the table regarding this decision. But Becerra said very clearly no, “Everything is on the table.”


He also wasn’t shy about saying that a lawless attitude didn’t just apply to this particular aspect of the abortion debate; he said that Joe Biden has said that all options were available back “when the Dobbs decision came out.” “Every option is on the table,” he said. Translation: everything they can do to avoid complying with the law is fair game. We saw how this resulted in activists trying to intimidate the justices of the Supreme Court, with one even wanting to assassinate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

This shows once again how lawless the Biden team is, how they think they are above the law. There are no “moderates.” They’ve all become the radical left like AOC. Ocasio-Cortez reiterated her position on Sunday as well saying she didn’t think federal courts had the authority to tell the FDA what to do:


She doesn’t seem to have any idea how the law works. Not that it would matter to her. She thinks the magical “D” means they can do what they like, and hang the law. The state should get to dictate to the people, she seems to think, regardless of what the law says.

Notice also how the media seems to blissfully go along with this, as though this is normal, and not an intent to undermine the very nature of our constitutional system. An “insurrection,” you might call it. The media doesn’t even seem to do much to question, much less condemn this radical position, because they likely agree with the position politically.

But it’s Republicans who are attacking the foundations of our system? The Democrats need to look in the mirror on that one. The only ones threatening the rule of law are them.
