Yes, once again, thanks to 63 million stupid people who thought Zero was going to pay their mortgages and put a chicken liver in every pothead, the feds are now giving out money like vomit from a drunk to directly pay for abortions. Your tax dollars in action. Isn't this a great country or what? We USED to have the Hyde Amendment which at least nixed federal abortion funding...but oh, no...why NOT offend people and make them pay for someone else to kill their own kid. WaytaGo, morons. That's what Obama REALLY means by "helping the poor." KILL THEIR CHILDREN!
Here is an excerpt from LifeSiteNews on the issue:
"WASHINGTON, D.C., July 13, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In the first known instance of direct federal funding of abortion under the new health care legislation, the Obama Administration will give Pennsylvania $160 million to set up a new "high-risk" insurance program - and has quietly approved a plan submitted by an appointee of Governor Edward Rendell (D) under which the new program will cover any abortion that is legal in Pennsylvania.
The high-risk pool program, which will be funded entirely by the federal government, is one of the new programs created by the sweeping health care legislation 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.
Although an earlier version of the health care legislation prevented federal funds from subsidizing abortion, that protection was not included in the bill signed into law. Although the president's Executive Order regarding funding for abortion was touted as the solution, the White House later admitted the Order simply "reiterated" what was already in the bill. Nonetheless, the mainstream media continues to portray the Executive Order as having effectively blocked federal funds for abortion.
"This is just the first proof of the phoniness of President Obama's assurances that federal funds would not subsidize abortion - but it will not be the last," said Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC).
