Surprise! ObamaCare Includes Abortion on Demand

Not that anyone with an IQ larger than their shoe size is actually 'surprised.' members of Congress said the plan’s approach to abortion is essentially the same as the Freedom of Choice Act, which would strip states’ right to limit abortion, establish abortion on demand across the country and allow federal funds to pay for the procedure.

...Gingrey and Smith joined other pro-life members of Congress in support of Rep. Joe Pitts’ (R-Pa.) sponsorship of an amendment to the House version of Obama’s health care plan, which is slated for mark-up this week. A similar amendment offered by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) to the Senate health care legislation banning federally funded abortions was rejected last week.

The reason for such an amendment is Dave Obey's "advisory committee".

The legislation vests new, huge, sweeping powers in an Obama-appointed committee tasked with establishing what is called essential health benefits that all plans must include,” Smith said. “Of course all that comes after the enactment and the signing into law the legislation.”

Smith added that abortion will be included in those benefits. “What we want to stress here is this benefits committee – which is unelected, and there will be minimal oversight – when they put together their minimum benefits of which abortion absolutely will be included on demand,” he said

The game is on in the District of Criminals.
