Here comes a even bigger struggle: President Obama has already released a statement that he would veto the Protect Life Act in the event it makes it to his desk. Clearly President Obama has no regard for the majority of the American people’s wishes on this subject and he continues to push a rather pro-abortion agenda.
- Uphold the Hyde Amendment which prevents any PPACA funds (tax dollars) from paying for abortion (except in the cases of rape/incest or threat to the mother’s life).
- Subsidized federal funds will not be able to cover abortions that step outside of the Hyde Amendment restrictions.
- Conscience protections upheld so that health care providers who will not take part in abortion receive federal funding without discrimination.
- Individuals, states, and local governments will have to purchase a separate rider to cover elective abortions. This will only be allowed through private funds, not your tax dollars.
How do you think this will turn out?
