It is said that after a person lies so many times it is impossible to distinguish when that person is telling the truth. Barack Obama has been in office less than 2 years, and already no one can trust a word he says.
Even though abortions are legal in the United States thanks to Roe v. Wade, not everyone has to support them financially, right? Wrong.
According to the new health care plan, excuse me, Obama Care, signed into law on March 24, 2010, no provision is made to prohibit funding of abortions through American tax dollars.
After all, the government can’t impose morality on its citizens any more than it can impose religion. First amendment, anyone?
Obama assured the country that federal funds would not be used in funding abortions, saying in his Executive Order for the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that “existing law prohibits these centers [community health centers] from using Federal funds to provide abortion services.”
Yet Obama recently allowed the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to approve a Pennsylvania plan to use federal funds to subsidize coverage of nearly any kind of abortion, and a Maryland plan is not far behind.
The high-risk pool program is one of the provisions in the Obama care plan that allows abortions to be funded by, you guessed it, your tax money. Do you think Obama hears the voices of American citizens? Not a chance.
The funds, $160 million to be exact, will go to pay for and subsidize abortions in the state of Pennsylvania, and as time goes on, these plans could be approved in any of the 49 other states.
But is there the hope that your money won’t actually fund these murders? The law states that “elective abortions are not covered.” Elective? That means if someone chooses, or elects, to have an abortion, it won’t be covered?
Wrong again. The “elective” part is deceptive because it isn’t defined. If a single physician believes that it is “necessary” based on “all factors (physical, emotional, psychological, familial and the woman’s age) relevant to the well-being of the woman,”” then the abortion is legal.
The only way an abortion is illegal? If the mother doesn’t want the child due to its sex.
While a lie was once considered the wrong thing to do, Obama has defined his presidency by it. Whether it be lying while he speaks in press conferences, lying on the record in the senate, or lying in constitutionally defended executive orders like the one mentioned in this paper, Barack Obama continues to do what he does best: lie, lie, lie.
P.S. It seems like Obama is not content with his own country. Now he’s funding a campaign for abortions in Kenya.
