Democrats guarantee abortion coverage in ObamaCare
Urgent: Call your representative and two senators today!
August 31, 2009
President Obama told liberal clergy that those who claim his health care plan will provide taxpayer funding for abortions are "bearing false witness." But it's the president who is not being truthful with the American people.
The Capps Amendment, passed by Democrats in the Energy and Commerce Committee at the end of July, specifically says that the "public health insurance option shall provide coverage for (abortion) services," and directs the "Commissioner" to "assure" that every American will have access "to at least one ... plan that provides coverage of (abortion) services."
California Democrat Zoe Lofgren admitted in a town hall meeting this month that "abortion will be covered by one or more of the health care plans available to Americans."
Even the Associated Press wrote that ObamaCare "would allow a new government-sponsored insurance plan to cover abortions."
Democrats in the House and Senate have voted down every attempt to make sure abortion funding is kept out of the health care proposal.
There are many reasons to oppose ObamaCare, but stopping the taxpayer funding of abortion is perhaps the most important. Help us protect the life of the unborn by working with us to stop ObamaCare in its tracks.
