In a terse message from Congress to Joe Biden, his administration has been informed of a responsibility to prosecute members of the abortion cartel in America.

A report at Washington Stand explains there are abortionists who are violating a federal law that forbids mailing abortion drugs.

The report explains a letter from 41 members of Congress to Attorney General Merrick Garland points out that the DOJ has “twisted the plain meaning of the law in an effort to promote the taking of unborn life.”

Organized by Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., and Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, the letter accuses the administration of deliberately ignoring the Comstock Act, “a federal law that forbids sending any item that ‘can be used or applied for producing abortion’ by mail or courier.”

Biden’s office actually has told abortionists they may ship abortion pills even into states where abortion is not allowed.

The report explained, “Pro-life congressmen say the administration is acting lawlessly and attempting to legislate by executive fiat. Although the law has been amended numerous times since its passage in 1873, ‘Congress has never repealed these criminal statutes that prohibit the mailing of dangerous chemical abortion drugs nor modified them in a way that restricted them based on the sender’s intent.’ In 1978, Congress specifically rejected a bill that would punish only those who ‘intended’ to ship drugs ‘used to procure an illegal abortion,” the report said.

The members, 22 from the Senate and 19 from the House, said, “It is clear that Congress never understood the law on mailing abortion drugs to mean anything other than what it says. … [T]he Biden administration’s DOJ has not only abdicated its constitutional responsibility to enforce the law, but also has once again twisted the plain meaning of the law in an effort to promote the taking of unborn life.”

Abortionists who ship mail-order abortion drugs, which make up 54% of all U.S. abortions now, could face prosecution under dozens of pro-life states’ laws in the future.

Lankford told “Washington Watch with Tony Perkins” that the Biden administration’s attempts to “water down federal pro-life protections and evade state laws lacks any legal standing.”

“The attorney general may yell and scream and say they’re going to file charges against states that actually protect children. Quite frankly, our nation is 234 years old; for 185 of those years, states have been allowed to be able to protect the lives of children. The time during Roe v. Wade is the anomaly [when] the Supreme Court took that [right] away from the states,” he said.

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is behind the current war against America’s children? Why are so many adults killing their unborn children right up to the moment of birth, or even after? Why are millions of kids sexualized virtually from birth, and injected with an experimental “vaccine” proven to be both ineffective and dangerous, then as toddlers transported to events glorifying mentally ill, demonically possessed men dressed as women?

Why are America’s children systematically sexualized at school, and by transgender recruiters on social media platforms like TikTok, seducing many into “identifying” as the opposite gender, or a brand-new imaginary gender, then encouraged to take powerful drugs and hormones and have their healthy breasts amputated or undergo chemical or surgical castration?

Why are our children simultaneously indoctrinated with toxic Marxist ideologies like “critical race theory” intended to condition them to hate and reject their own country, parents, faith, race, gender and themselves? Why are they simultaneously being frightened of the future by being fed lurid, terrifying – and groundless – apocalyptic tales of the imminent destruction of the world due to global warming?

No wonder youth suicides have skyrocketed, as have depression, anxiety, addiction and drug overdoses. Indeed, fentanyl, the No. 1 cause of death of younger Americans 18 to 45, destroys multitudes of children annually.

Make no mistake: The harm being done to America’s children in this multi-front war is not accidental: Children are the primary target.

WHY? How can all this be happening in the greatest nation on earth? Who and what is behind it? And HOW CAN IT BE STOPPED?
