Ranking Member Cassidy Condemns Biden Administration’s Continued Disregard of Congressional Intent in Published PWFA Regulation

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA), ranking member of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) Committee, slammed the Biden administration following its illegal injection of abortion politics in its final enforcement regulations for the bipartisan Pregnant Workers Fairness Act (PWFA).  

Previously, Cassidy blasted the Biden administration for its inclusion of abortion politics in the proposed regulation and called for those provisions to be removed. 

“The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act aims to assist pregnant mothers who remain in the workforce by choice or necessity as they bring their child to term and recover after childbirth. It defies common sense, and Congress’ intent, that EEOC continues to inject abortion into a law specifically aimed at promoting healthy childbirth,” said Dr. Cassidy. “The Biden administration must enforce the law as passed by Congress, not how they wish it were passed. The decision to disregard the legislative process to promote a political agenda is shocking and illegal.”
