President Obama has previously promised that, “no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions, and federal conscience laws will remain in place.”
In light of this, some questions you should ask include:
Why is the President going along with the Senate plan that could require private health insurance companies to cover abortion?
Why does the President’s proposal allow federally-subsidized health plans to pay for abortions?
Why is the President supporting an “abortion tax” paid by individuals participating in the Exchange?
Why does the President’s plan require states to act to stop subsidized plans from funding abortions?
Why does the President’s plan not adequately protect the conscience rights of health care providers who do not want to participate in abortions?
Lastly, why are there no restrictions on funding of abortions tied to the increase in funding of community health centers?
Be sure to tell the White House you want the President to keep his promise that no taxpayer funding will go to abortion.
