Stop the Abortion Mandate is a coalition made up of 54 organizations committed to stop the abortion mandate within the current pieces of health care reform legislation. They sent a letter to Congress on July 22nd, and they also have a video.
There are some who will claim there is no such mandate, as there are not any references to abortion within the pieces of legislation. The text of the bills do not clearly exclude abortion from any tax-payer subsidized or government-mandated benefits package.
And that’s the problem with health care reform as it relates to abortion (and other things as well) – ambiguity. Too much left up to interpretation by too many people.
