Supreme Court Decision: Open Door for Free Abortion
This morning the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Obama’s Healthcare law, much to the dismay of pro-life advocates across the country, came as a shock. Setting aside whether or not we are in favor of the Obama administration’s healthcare reform legislation, this healthcare mandate is the largest abortion expansion since Roe v. Wade.
President Obama has opened the doors to federally funded abortion, and other so called “preventive services” that go against the conscience of millions of Americans. There is a false belief that the Hyde Amendment will prohibit federal funds from paying for abortion. Unfortunately, the reality is that American’s will be forced pay into insurance programs that will provide elective abortions.
As a taxpayer, and a woman, I say we should not be forced to pay for elective abortions, nor should we treat women’s bodies as if they are deficient and need free fixing. Under President Obama’s healthcare law, with no copayment, women will receive such life destroying services, while those who are in need of other truly vital medical assistance for non reproductive reasons will not always receive the same free care; many true health care procedures will not be covered even with a co-payment.
We will not be silent as we are forced to participate in the destruction of human life and as women’s bodies are treated as deficient objects. Stand for freedom and the protection of our Constitutional rights before it is too late.
Dignity of the Born and Unborn,
"Unfortunately, the reality is that American’s will be forced pay into insurance programs that will provide elective abortions. "
I don't understand this. Every exchange is required to have at least one plan that does not cover elective abortions. So how will people be forced to choose plans to do cover them? Any more than they are now, at least — if you have coverage through your employer, you won't be using the exchanges, but you don't get to pick whether your employer's plan covers abortions.
OH GOD PLEASE SHUT UP!
It's within the government's power to tax citizens to insure that the health care system remains an affordable service. Did you even read the supreme court decision? or are you one of those Rand Paul types who thinks that the supreme court doesn't have the constitutional power to rule on the constitutionality of laws passed by congress?
Why do you let timmerie post this tea-party republican crap on your site? Oh wait it's cause you're all Tea-party Republicans who claim to be "secular"– now I remember.
Yeah, it's not clear to me that the ACA changes anything in terms of funding for abortion.
What about all the abortions that the health care bill will prevent through increased access to family planning, prenatal care, and such?
