Xavier Becerra’s confirmation as Secretary of Health and Human Services poses a clear and present danger for Catholics and all people of faith. Given his record of aggressive hostility to free speech, health care freedom, and the traditional values of marriage, family, and the sanctity of life, Americans must be prepared for what is coming.
Becerra is a culture warrior and extreme left-wing ideologue who repeatedly trampled on our most fundamental constitutional rights. We can only assume Becerra’s clear contempt for religious freedom will continue in his new role. It is only a matter of time before he targets the Little Sisters of the Poor again, strips doctors and religious institutions of conscience rights, and mandates other harmful policies that assault core freedoms cherished by people of faith. Every Senator who voted in favor of this confirmation is now responsible for the radical policies likely to come out of HHS during Becerra’s tenure — and voters must hold them accountable.
