So says the Obama Administration as it finishes the rules writing for the Obama Care... Read more here...
It’s official. The concern pro-life organizations had about the
ObamaCare legislation funding abortions has been confirmed, as the Obama
administration has issued the final rules on abortion funding governing
the controversial health care law.
Nestled within the “individual mandate” in the Obamacare act — that
portion of the Act requiring every American to purchase government —
approved insurance or pay a penalty — is an “abortion premium mandate.”
This mandate requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that
include elective abortion coverage to pay a separate premium from their
own pockets to fund abortion. As a result, many pro-life Americans will
have to decide between a plan that violates their consciences by
funding abortion, or a plan that may not meet their health needs.
The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a final rule regarding establishment of the state health care exchanges required under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
As a knowledgeable pro-life source on Capitol Hill informed LifeNews,
as authorized by Obamacare, “The final rule provides for taxpayer
funding of insurance coverage that includes elective abortion” and the
change to longstanding law prohibiting virtually all direct taxpayer
funding of abortions (the Hyde Amendment) is accomplished through an
accounting arrangement described in the Affordable Care Act and
reiterated in the final rule issued today.
