ObamaCare Update: Taxpayer Dollars Will Be Used to Fund Abortions

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

This week, the Department of Health and Human Services announced that it will provide $160 million in taxpayer money to Pennsylvania to set up a new high-risk insurance pool that will cover any abortion that is legal in the state. Although the Majority claimed that the government-run health care bill would not lead to taxpayer-funded abortions, the law does not contain a specific, statutory prohibition in the legislation. This essentially means that there is no restriction on federal dollars from flowing to insurance plans that cover elective abortions under the state exchanges created by the legislation. The health care law also increases funding for "community health centers" by $2.5 billion, which are not explicitly prohibited in the bill from using the funds to pay for abortions. Because of these egregious provisions, Congressman Miller has cosponsored legislation that would expressly prohibit any federal funding for abortion coverage through the government exchanges, community health centers, or any other program created or funded by the government-run health care law. He will continue to fight for the unborn and will not abandon the sanctity of human life.
