This is from today.
Anti-choice politicians have drawn a line in the sand: they won’t be happy until women who now have private insurance coverage for abortion lose it in the new health-care system. The stakes for women could not be higher in the health-care debate.So according to NARAL, if Obamacare passes with a public option, then your tax dollars will pay for abortion. Commentators on the left have called us liars for saying the public option includes abortion, but when Nancy Keenan writes that they are making sure “anti-choice legislators don’t succeed in banning abortion in a reformed health-care system,” then we know that it is part of the public option. They know it is and want to save it.
That’s why we’re meeting with key lawmakers all day today to drive the point home—and making sure that anti-choice legislators don’t succeed in banning private insurance companies from covering abortion care in a reformed health-care system.
Don’t be fooled by the distinction between public and private. If healthcare stays in the hands of private companies then we still have a choice of what type of plan we pay into. If it becomes “public” (i.e, socialized) then you will pay for abortions.
Call your congressman and senators and do the opposite of what Nancy Keenan of NARAL says to do! And feel free to foreward this message to everyone you know.
