Abortion and Obamacare
by

One of the “myths” liberals are starting to push back against is the idea that the main Democratic health care plan funds abortion. But even the most sympathetic reading suggests, absent any provision to the contrary, that the federal government would subsidize the purchase of health coverage that includes elective abortions even if it is not subsidizing the abortions directly. In practice, this is likely to prove a distinction without a difference. This will not change even if the bill is amended to allow the government-subsidized purchase of health care plans that do not cover abortion. Taxpayer funds will make possible the coverage and procurement of elective abortions.
