And yet, the healthcare bill doesn’t exclude abortion mandates.  So another reason to be opposed to this healthcare bill that will increase taxes and undermine private insurance.

Kim Lehman of Iowa Right to Life writes the consequences of this bill there is not specific language on abortion, it will in effect do the following:

  1. Compel taxpayers to finance abortions.
  2. Coerce private insurance plans to pay for abortions.
  3. Force communities to set up abortion facilities everywhere in the name of “ACCESS.”

She says that the “breach in the new Health Care Reform Bill the Democrats are pushing through Congress goes beyond the radical Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA).”

Be sure to contact your Representative and Senator.  Tell them to (ideally) kill the entire bill, but at the very least make sure abortion mandates are excluded from the bill.
