Or, as Pundette says in Finding Out What’s In It:
I don’t think the majority of Americans are going to be pleased with this. They may or may not be okay with abortion, but do they really want the blood on their own hands, per order of the federal government? Isn’t there a law against that? But the Obama administration is betting they won’t really mind. God knows he doesn’t. Nor does his henchwoman Kathleen Sebelius.
So it should come as no surprise to see what’s turned up in Obamacare: Obama Admin Finalizes Rules: $1 Abortions in ObamaCare
Pundette highlights the coverage from Life Site News. The Daily Caller has the story now, too:
The Department of Health and Human Services has finalized the policies governing state health care exchanges under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, and with it the rules governing abortion coverage under the new law.
Life News reports that “the concern pro-life organizations had about the ObamaCare legislation funding abortions has been confirmed.”
Indeed pro-lifers have long have known that the health care law, specifically Section 1303, would require enrollees in the health care exchanges to pay a separate monthly surcharge for abortion coverage.
With the final HHS rules set in stone, the surcharge is a dollar.
“We knew it would be there because of the law but they have confirmed now with their final rule that it will be a one dollar surcharge,” a pro-life House staffer told The Daily Caller.
“In all likelihood a lot of people are going to be purchasing a plan and if they are not paying attention when they purchase they are going to be paying a dollar a month surcharge for a service they are never going to use or want to use,” the staffer added. “Really it boils down to an accounting gimmick anyway.”
That’s it. Life Site News, Pundette, Nice Deb, K-Lo and the DC. Spread this around. Make it go viral. Multiple Memeorandum threads. Force the MSM to report it on the nightly news. Make everyone who claims to be pro-life who voted for this man and his merry henchmen rue the day they swallowed the Hopenchange.
This will not stand.
Repeal this bill. And know that the man who designed the grandfather of Obamacare won’t be the man to lead the way.
