Obama Reveals True Colors: Federally Funded Abortion on Demand!

We've been saying right from the beginning that ANY healthcare "reform" coming out of THIS Congress and THIS Administration will result in federally funded abortion. Congress passed the Stupak amendment passed, but it's like nothing ever happened.

From Steve Ertelt at LifeNews:

Obama Will Remove Abortion Funding Ban From Health Care Bill, Advisor Says

Washington, DC ( -- Top Obama advisor David Axelrod on Sunday confirmed what pro-life advocates already suspected would happen. He said President Barack Obama will work with congressional Democrats to remove the abortion funding ban the House approved in its version of the government-run health care bill.

Axelrod says that, because the Stupak amendment allegedly goes beyond the status quo under the Hyde amendment (which bans abortion funding under Medicaid),
Obama will make sure the amendment is yanked during the conference committee....

"The only thing that will prevent the health care bill from being 'an abortion bill' is precisely the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, as the House of Representatives recognized by a 46-vote margin," (Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee) said.

"The phoniness of Obama's claim that he has been trying to preserve the 'status quo' on abortion policy should be evident to any observer by now. In reality, the White House and top Democratic congressional leaders have been working hard to create a national federal government health plan that would fund abortion on demand, just as Obama promised Planned Parenthood," Johnson added.
