Obamacare Outrage #11: Taxpayer Funded Abortions

How Senator Mikulski Slipped an Abortion Mandate into the Health Care Bill , and was outed on her actions by Senator Hatch:

To eliminate any ambiguity that Mikulski’s amendment was intended to mandate abortion coverage in the proposed health-care reform, Hatch asked her a final question.

“Madame Chairman, would you be willing to put some language in that says, ‘Not including abortion services’?” Hatch asked. “Then I think you would have more support.”

Mikulski concluded with a convoluted response, saying, “So, no, I would not be willing to do that at this time.” Mikulski’s amendment passed.

On Monday, Hatch offered his own amendment in the committee to prohibit any funding of abortion through federally funded health insurance programs except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother. The amendment was defeated.
Taxpayer-funded abortions is now in the Senate ObamaCare bill.
