Reid's Senate Health Care Bill Contains Monthly Abortion Premium for Taxpayers

Stop the Senate Bill in its tracks. Right now it looks like the "Motion to Proceed" will be voted on this Saturday. Go to or call 202-224-3121 to ask your senators to vote NO on the "Motion to Proceed."

Our post title is Steve Ertelt's headline in this morning's LifeNews:

Washington, DC ( -- House Republican Leader John Boehner says the new health care bill Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid unveiled yesterday contains a monthly abortion premium that taxpayers will be forced to pay. His analysis follows that of pro-life groups that say the bill contains massive abortion funding.

"Just like the original 2,032-page, government-run health care plan from Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s massive, 2,074-page bill would levy a new 'abortion premium' fee on Americans in the government-run plan," he notes....

"Section 1303(a)(2)(C) describes the process in which the Health Benefits Commissioner is to assess the monthly premiums that will be used to pay for elective abortions under the government-run health plan and for those who are given an affordability credit to purchase insurance coverage that includes abortion through the Exchange. The Commissioner must charge at a minimum $1 per enrollee per month," Boehner said today.
