Associated Press: No doubt about it. ObamaCare does pay for abortion

AFAlogo

As even the Associated Press admits, the government takeover of health care will,despite what the president has told you, involve the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions.

The AP says flatly, “The proposed legislation would permit government-sponsored health plans, open to non-Medicaid patients, to cover abortions.”

So when the president or members of Congress say abortions aren’t covered in health care reform, they aren’t telling you the truth. And when the president’s spokesman says that federal law would prevent taxpayer funding of abortions in the health care plan, he’s not telling you the truth either.

The Hyde Amendment prevents Medicaid funds – and Medicaid funds only – from being used for abortions, but that restriction wouldn’t apply to the government takeover of health care.

In fact, under the Capps Amendment in the House bill, the public option would be required to offer abortion services, and every American would have to have access to at least one health care plan that included abortion.

Take Action

The full Senate will soon be debating its huge health care bill. Contact both of your senators today and tell them firmly but politely that they can’t “Hyde” any longer, that abortion is not health care, and that they must remove abortion from any health care reform bill they consider.
