Federal Funding for Abortion in Health Care Bill: An analysis

April 17th, 2010 by

FOF’s Ashley Horne explains how the new health care bill will provide for government subsidized abortions in an article published yesterday entitled How Exactly Will the Government Fund Abortion Under the New Health Care Law?  Here’s a selection:

The truth is that even with the executive order in place, the government will still subsidize abortions under the new health care law.  Here’s how:

Starting in 2014, if a qualified person enrolls in a state-based private health insurance exchange that offers abortion coverage, the federal government will send tax dollars to that insurance provider to help offset the cost of the insurance coverage – coverage that includes abortion.

If you enroll in a taxpayer-subsidized health plan that covers abortion, the law requires you to make a separate payment of no less than $1 per month (an “abortion premium”) to the insurance company for abortion services.  It doesn’t matter that you may object to the practice of abortion.  It doesn’t matter that you may never actually have an abortion. You pay anyway. In fact, everyone who enrolls in a taxpayer-subsidized health plan that covers abortion will be paying into a pool of money – money which can only be used by the insurance company to pay out for abortion services.
