Regardless of anything Barack Obama has said there will be federal funding for abortions in his new healthcare scheme and this is one of the major problems Americans have with it.
An analysis of the new healthcare bill, posted by the White House, indicates Obama has no intension of cutting federal funding for abortions in this latest “new” version of healthcare.
The new plan will provide $11 billion to expand Community Health Centers that will certainly do abortions. Apparently Obama and his Party believe Americans especially Pro Lifers are fools.
The projected price tag for aborting millions of American babies has actually been increased by $2.5 billion with funding not only for staffing but for the construction of new “Centers” as well.
The hopes of many Pro Lifers that the Stupak-Pitts amendment would keep federally funded abortions out of Obama’s scheme have proved groundless because there is no mention of it in the new text. Clearly, if this new bill passes and becomes law we will be paying for the slaughter of innocent babies under the guise of “better health.”
America is growing more, not less Pro Life
The more Barack Obama pushes socialized healthcare plans on America, the more his popularity falls. Rasmussen tells us just 41% of voters favor socialized healthcare and 56% are against it. Fully 45% “strongly oppose” the plan.
The Left would never admit this but there is strong evidence to suggest that there is a correlation between the recent dramatic shift in public attitudes against abortion and the growing resistance to a healthcare scheme that will include tax payer funded abortions.
For the first time in many years the number of Americans who want abortion legal in “every case” is below 50% at 47% which has dropped from 54% in just the past year.
America wants Congress to start over on healthcare
Sixty one percent of Americans want the entire plan scrapped and Congress to start over with a clean slate. The idea of Obama and his Party ramming through a single payer socialized medicine scheme is political suicide for them, but he doesn’t seem to care.
A majority of Americans don’t believe Obama’s healthcare scheme will pass this year and who can disagree?
What did you do to be worthy of your American freedoms yesterday? What will you do today and what do you plan to do tomorrow?
