ObamaCare Now Funding Abortions in PA

"We've been able to come up with an agreement to respect the sanctity of life on health care reform. There will be no public funding for abortion in this legislation. We've all stood on principle." -Congressman Bart Stupak on March 21, 2010

Uh, Bart Stupak call your office.

Human Events is reporting that
The Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) is providing $160 million to the state of Pennsylvania to set up a new high-risk insurance pool program that pays for abortions, as part of a larger $5 billion commitment of taxpayer funds that will include abortion coverage for over 400,000 people nationwide.

“This is the boldest admission yet from the Obama administration that the President’s Executive Order on taxpayer-funded abortion was a sham. The fact that the high-risk pool insurance program in Pennsylvania will use federal taxpayer dollars to fund abortions is unconscionable,” said House Republican leader John Boehner.
This is sickening. Bart Stupak should be ashamed of himself. Bob Casey Jr. of Pennsylvania should be ashamed of himself. I'd bet his father already is.

Dems for Life? Hah!

  2. "Democrats For Life" is fast becoming an oxymoron on the level of "Prostitutes For Virginity".

  3. Now that the Obama admin OKs first tax funded abortions under Obamacare, I wonder if the signers of the Manhattan Declaration will make good on their threat to commit acts of civil disobedience?

    An archbishop has already called for civil disobedience http://divine-ripples.blogspot.com/2010/07/archbishop-calls-for-civil-disobedience.html
    (But that's in Spain though.)

  4. Is this duplicity much different than the Catholic Church saying it opposes divorce while its priests advise in favor of divorce to seek annulments, every single day?

  5. @Anon 3:26: IMHO - apples and oranges. Abortion unlike divorce is an intrinsic evil.

  7. @Anon 7:02. He might have been threatened. Is that a justification?
