Worse than you thought: Obamacare Provides Unlimited Taxpayer Funding Of Abortion.

Every individual enrolled in a plan that is eligible for federal tax credits and includes coverage of abortion will be forced to pay an additional abortion premium of at least $12 per year with private dollars.

Obamacare mandates that insurance companies then “segregate” any federal affordability tax credits it receives from the individual premiums used to pay for abortions.

The law provides no opt-out for individuals or families who may want to buy a particular plan that fits their health needs but does not include abortion coverage.

The number of abortions that will be heavily subsidized via federal premium tax credits and Medicaid expansion is likely to be between 71,000 and 111,500 per year.

Come October 1, those horribles will resume their onward march as the law’s impact on subsidizing elective abortion will begin to become clearer.

On October 1, many Americans will be railroaded into paying directly for abortions with their insurance premiums.

“You could call the Affordable Care Act the ‘Abortionist Full-Employment Act’ given all the new income flowing to the abortion lobby, over the objection of an increasingly pro-life America,” Yoest said. “While defunding the law is a good place to begin, that won’t solve the layers of anti-life mandates impacting ordinary Americans. Repealing Obamacare is the only way to ensure that life is protected from its intrusive policies.”

The AUL president said the HHS Preventive Care guidelines (which adopt the FDA’s mislabeling of abortion-causing drugs like ella as contraception, and then require their coverage as preventive care) have been in place since August 2012 but its coercive reach continues to expand. Each month, more private insurance plans are required to comply with the anti-life mandate when they lose their “grandfathered” status.
