Forced Prenatal Testing? Yup. The Reich Demands It!

This is not just a matter of a sonogram.

...On the campaign trail in Ohio Saturday, Santorum said, "Free prenatal testing ends up in more abortions and therefore less care that has to be done because we cull the ranks of the disabled in our society." Asked about his statement during an appearance on CBS's "Face the Nation" Sunday morning, Santorum held his ground.  "The bottom line is that a lot of prenatal tests are done to identify deformities in utero and the customary procedure is to encourage abortions," he said.  "This is what goes on in medical rooms around the country. And yes, prenatal testing, amniocentesis does, in fact, result more often than not in this country in abortions."

First off, it's not "free."   With that out of the way....

Santorum's absolutely correct.  ObozoCare requires amniocentesis; it would no longer be elective.  And Santorum's also correct that when a deformity is detected, abortion is suggested.

We should add that, in cases where the baby is born with a grave deformity, it is also suggested that 'feeding and hydrating the baby' is a waste of time and money.

To the Statists, individuals have no rights.  Only the State has rights.

Your source for this is what? Because I'm pretty sure it is FALSE. PPACA requires the procedure be covered by insurance policies.

You folks need to understand the difference between something being required (amniocentecic, end of life planning) and COVERAGE for the cost of those services being required.
