Obama Administration Approves First Taxpayer-Funded Abortions Under Obamacare
Another Day – Another Liberal Lie Exposed
Obama told Americans back in November that democrats would not sneak in funding for abortion in their health care bill.
It was a lie.
The Obama Administration just approved the first taxpayer-funded abotions under Obamacare.
Life News reported:
The Obama administration has officially approved the first instance of taxpayer funded abortions under the new national government-run health care program. This is the kind of abortion funding the pro-life movement warned the kind of abortion funding the pro-life movement warned about when Congress considered the bill.
The Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million to set up a new “high-risk” insurance program under a provision of the federal health care legislation enacted in March.
It has quietly approved a plan submitted by an appointee of pro-abortion Governor Edward Rendell under which the new program will cover any abortion that is legal in Pennsylvania.
The high-risk pool program is one of the new programs created by the sweeping health care legislation, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, President Obama signed into law on March 23. The law authorizes $5 billion in federal funds for the program, which will cover as many as 400,000 people when it is implemented nationwide.
Of course, Barack Obama promised Americans several times that abortion would not be covered under the bill.
