Obamacare: Maryland to offer federally funded abortions

July 18, 2010

  Last week Pennsylvania became the first state to offer federally funded abortions under Obamacare, and now Maryland has joined in and will be the second state to allow taxpayer money to be used for abortions.

  How can this be, Barack Obama signed an executive order outlawing the use of taxpayer money for abortion? Well, he also signed an executive order to shut down GITMO and that isn’t going to happen. This should come as no surprise. Barack Obama only signed the executive order to placate pro-life advocates and all the while he knew that this legislation would be used to fund abortions. The executive order was nothing more than a public relations move– much like the GITMO executive order– and Barack Obama either hoped that Americans wouldn’t realize that federal money was eventually going to be used to fund abortions, or he didn’t give a damn what Americans thought after they learned the truth because by that time it would be too late to stop his radical agenda.

  The law trumps Barack Obama’s executive order and money that Maryland is going to receive from the federal government (the taxpayers) is going to be used to fund abortions. Barack Obama’s executive order banning the use of federal money to fund abortions was nothing but a sham– just as many of us knew it was from the beginning.

Maryland will receive $85 million in federal funds for its federally mandated high-risk insurance pool, which will cover abortions

  This “high-risk” insurance pool is the same program that Pennsylvania is using to cover abortions also. Regardless of what Barack Obama said when he signed this executive order, federal money is going to be used to kill the unborn.

  Bart Stupak is the man who held up the healthcare reform legislation because he was allegedly against the notion that taxpayer dollars would be used to fund abortions, but instead of holding out for language in the bill that would have prohibited the federal funding for abortion, he caved in on a promise by Barack Obama that taxpayer money wouldn’t be used to fund abortion– and obviously more importantly in his mind, grant money to his state to build airports– and now we are seeing exactly what Barack Obama’s word is worth– NOTHING! 

  Barack Obama is a two-faced scoundrel who has shown the world that his word means absolutely nothing, and Bart Stupak should be ashamed of himself for believing him in the first place.

  In wake of Bart Stupak’s sellout of the most vulnerable among us– the unborn– he was forced to announce that he will not run for re-election. While he will never admit it, his vote for healthcare reform was the final nail in his political coffin. And all of those Blue Dog Democrats who pretended that they were pro-life Democrats who opposed federal funding of abortion should also lose their jobs. They let America down and they let the unborn children down. We should never forget that they sold the unborn babies down the river so that Bart Stupak could “bring home the bacon” to his home state. I hope that they are proud of what they did.

  Two states have now confirmed that they will use this “high-risk” pool as a means to fund abortions and we can expect more– if not all– states to follow suit. That is why it is of the utmost importance to pass legislation that will correct this wrongdoing.

  Mike Pence has come out swinging against this betrayal, calling on congress to amend the legislation to stop the federal funding of abortion.

This is one more example of a broken promise in ObamaCare,” said Pence. “It is morally wrong to end an unborn human life and it is reprehensible to take taxpayer dollars from millions of pro-life Americans and use them to pay for abortions.”

Pence urged Congress to enact new legislation to stop abortion funding through the health-care law.
“I call on Congress to act quickly on critical legislation by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA) to stop the administration from using ObamaCare to fund abortions

  Barack Obama claimed that under healthcare reform there would be no federal fund available to perform abortions:

Under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions

  But we have now learned that that statement is a lie. If this was just an oversight by the president– and not just a bold faced lie– we should expect him to join Mike Pence and call for an amendment that would prohibit the taxpayers from funding this genocide. If he refuses to do so, we will know that this was part of his plan from the beginning. I think we all know were Barack Obama stands on this issue.

    Apparently one’s word means nothing to Obama as with all his kind the “the ends justify the means”!

    …And the dems are still saying that they will keep the house in Nov? How much more ammo does the right need? now we need to concentrate on weeding out the RINOs.

      The Dems are just trying to put on a brave face, they know what is coming in November. Robert Gibbs admitted the truth and look at what Nancy Pelosi did to him. We will weed out the RINOs, Republicans had better not assume that they are safe, we are watching them also!

        But Liberals always reply with, “So if someone is anti-war, he shouldn’t have to pay taxes, right?”

        Yes they do, but my response to them is, the constitution grants congress the right to declare war, where is the right to an abortion found in the constitution? They have no amswer.

    As I continue to play devil’s advocated, the Liberal would say, “Where is the prohibition against women having dominion over their own bodies?”
