Although President Obama has said there is not abortion funding in the healthcare reform legislation, now both liberal and conservative media sources say he is being disingenuous. Besides, if it’s not there, why would all of the proabort organizations be supporting it so heavily? Here’s why.
Add the Washington Times to the list of media outlets that is confirming what pro-life organizations have said for weeks – taxpayer-funding of abortion and insurance coverage mandates appear in the government-run health care bills Congress is considering.
The Times joins the Associated Press, Time magazine, and the nonpartisan FactCheck.org watchdog in confirming abortion funding exists.
“President Obama isn’t being straight when he says current health care proposals don’t provide government funding for abortion. They do,” the Times newspaper says in a Monday editorial.
“If Democratic plans are passed, your taxes will pay for abortions.”
“House and Senate sponsors defeated a total of seven different attempts, in four committees, to restrict the use of federal funds for abortions,” the newspaper continues.
The Times goes on to describe the Capps amendment a House committee adopted that abortion advocates say prohibits abortion funding but doesn’t.
Section 4 (B) of the amendment reads: “Abortions for Which Public Funding Is Allowed. – The services described in this subparagraph are abortions for which the expenditure of Federal funds appropriated for the Department of Health and Human Services is permitted.”
You can’t get anymore clear than that.
