Newt Gingrich calls Obama the Food Stamp president. Obama is also the “Abortion President”. Or perhaps I really should call him the Abortion King.
Within the unreadable pages of Obamacare there exists several ways by which abortion is covered and paid for through tax payers’ money.
A new surcharge of $1 will be included in the insurance exchanges and the tax payer will not even know they are paying into this to fund abortions.
Also, those who buy specific insurance which covers abortion will not only be able to deduct that from their taxes, but they can get an earned income credit for having an abortion included policy.
And where would this “earned income credit” come from? The tax payer of course.
If you recall the battle over Obamacare, there was a bill introduced called the Pitts/Stupak Amendment. This was done so that no abortion would be funded in the Obamacare health plans. But, what many don’t know is the amendment was never included in the Obamacare in the end. I believe this amendment being placed within the Obamacare package was done as a payoff for Pitts and Stupak to vote for Obamacare. They were deceived of course.
According to the ACLJ:
“ObamaCare requires every American to purchase health insurance, it requires every state to establish health insurance exchanges, and it dramatically expands Medicaid. Each of these – private health insurances programs, exchanges, and Medicaid – can, and in some case are required to, provide coverage for abortion. The result is hundreds of millions of dollars being funneled to the abortion industry every year and the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.
In fact, the law specifically provides that state health exchanges may cover abortions unless the state enacts specific legislation prohibiting abortion coverage. Moreover, the law’s requirement that insurance providers cover “preventive services” and preventative care are so broadly defined that they could be used to force coverage of abortions and abortion related drugs. Thus, all Americans are forced to purchase health insurance that could cover abortion and in some cases is required to cover abortion.”
I find this to be a complete outrage. Tax payers should not have to pay for others’ abortions. And it is completely unacceptable for those who are pro-life and believe that aborting a baby is murder. But we will have no recourse if Obamacare stands with the Supreme Court.
So not only do we, as citizens, have to buy into these exchange plans, mandated of course, we also get the extra little goody of paying and funding abortions, something many Americans do not want to pay. This is an affront to one’s religious views of abortion.
And this is far worse than the contraceptive battle being waged on the Catholic Church recently. If you think the tax payer providing contraceptive is unacceptable, then I’m sure you will feel even angrier over the fact that you will be paying for abortions, which is far worse.
I don’t know about you, but I do not want to be any part of paying for murder of innocent babies. It goes against my moral conscience and my religious beliefs which are supposed to be protected under the 1rst Amendment. Once again Obama steps on the rights of every citizen in this country with his forced mandates for abortion funding.
