Obama Health Care Bill Pays for Abortion

Barack Obama - the one with two pre-teen daughters living in the White House...the daughters he did not "want punished with a baby," has added taxpayer funded abortions back into the health care bill that will be passed by a reconciliation vote, if it passes at all. On this most sensitive of all issues, an issue of life and death, you and I will be forced to help fund the taking of a child's life. This is an unforgivable position.

If all of the President's changes were made, the resulting legislation would allow direct federal funding of abortion-on-demand through community health centers, would institute federal subsidies for private health plans that cover abortion-on-demand, including some federally administered plans, and would authorize federal mandates that would require even non-subsidized private plans to cover elective abortion,” Douglas said.
One of Obama's first acts as President was the dissolution of the Mexico City policy, instituted...yet again by  G.W. Bush. The Mexico City policy prohibited federal funds sent abroad from paying for, or promoting abortion. You and I are already funding abortions, and the promoting of abortion outside the U.S.
Under the hotly debated "Mexico City Policy," the U.S. government could not provide funding for family planning services to clinics or groups that offered abortion-related services overseas, even if funding for those activities came from non-government sources. It essentially barred recipients of U.S. foreign aid from promoting abortion as a method of family planning.
Reagan put the Mexico City policy in place. Bill Clinton rescinded it. G.W. Bush reinstated it. Obama rescinded it on January 23rd, two days after his inauguration.

Since that time, our tax money, sent abroad as aid, is available to pay for abortions and to promote abortions. What a sad time for America, that a sitting president would write this legislation himself. It is an unforgivable position.

The second video below is nurse, Jill Stanek. Stanek has testified that Barack Obama was the sole Illinois Senator to speak out against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in Illinois. The act was to protect a baby born alive after an induced abortion. The bill would have guaranteed that the child would be treated as a "person," and would be cared for, humanely given comfort, and given sustenance if it lived long enough - rather than...being wrapped in a hospital towel or sheet and placed in the hospital "soiled linen" closet until it died.
