Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are reportedly moving to create a more limited version of the highly controversial and short-lived “Disinformation Governance Board,” in the form of a new high-ranking official at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The new official would be charged with monitoring and responding to public “misinformation” about access to abortion and other reproductive and sexual health services, according to a report from Fox News.

The legislation from democratic Congresswoman Nikema Williams of Georgia and co-sponsored by four other congressional democrats explains the new role is designed to “collect information regarding, and to address, reproductive and sexual health misinformation being disseminated to the public”

The bill further specifies that “The term ‘reproductive and sexual health misinformation’ includes any information relating to reproductive and sexual health that is not evidence based or medically accurate, including inaccuracy in the provision of any related services.”

The proposed “Ombuds for Reproductive and Sexual Health,” would go beyond combating “misinformation.” It would advocate abortion access, at the taxpayers expense, from deep within one of the most powerful federal agencies.

In a press release introducing the legislation Williams said, “As the assault on abortion rights continues, people are scared and confused as to what resources are available for them. The HHS Reproductive and Sexual Health Ombuds Act will ensure everyone has timely, accurate information about their abortion rights. As we push to enact federal legislation protecting our right to abortion nationwide, Congress must also do all we can to ensure everyone gets information about access to evidence-based, medically accurate reproductive and sexual healthcare services.”

Republican Congressman Dan Bishop criticized the bill in a tweet Monday. He wrote, “Federal dollars for abortion advocacy and Orwellian ‘misinformation’ czars. Just another day in the Democrat Party.”
