Merry Christmas – You’re Now Legally Required to Fund Abortions

with 2 comments

As hundreds of millions of Americans gather to celebrate the miraculous birth central to their faith, U.S. Senators will be passing legislation that will require these same Americans to pay for the ending of unborn lives.  The timing can be described as nothing less than the epitome of sick and morbid irony.

Nebraska’s Democratic Senator Ben Nelson was quick to forget his opposition to abortion when Harry Reid offered forth taxpayer money from 49 other states to pick up the tab for Nebraska’s Medicaid program (if you live in any state other than Nebraska, you’ll be paying for your state’s Medicaid program as well as the Medicaid program in Nebraska).

Even more unconscionable, this bill will lead to your tax dollars funding any and all abortions.  Never mind that 73% of Americans oppose taxpayer-funded abortions (while 23% support).  Forget that the concept of ending a viable human life is morally reprehensible to many Americans.  Even further, if your religious or moral beliefs compel you to reject the barbaric practice of late-term abortions, where a living human being (who could survive outside the womb) is sliced, diced, butchered, and suctioned out of the mother – well, that’s too bad.

According to the Senate bill poised to pass, you’re going to have to pay for it regardless of your core moral convictions.  By the way, where exactly is the “Right to Choose” for those who do not wish to fund abortions?

There is already chatter on various blogs regarding the idea of “Conscientious Objection” to being forced to pay for abortions.  Doctors are allowed to invoke this protection against an action they find morally reprehensible, however will American taxpayers be given the same protections?

On the eve of Christ’s birth, our Senators will be passing a law that will require Americans to pay for abortions.  If you disagree with abortion – including late-term abortion – what will you do when your taxes come due, and you realize that a portion the money you are sending to the federal government will be responsible for ending unborn babies’ lives?  Regardless of your own personal views on abortion, is it right to force those who are morally opposed to abortion to be required by law to pay for it?

The content of the current health care bill about to pass shows each and every Democrat in the Senate could care less, and the timing of the vote (on Christmas Eve) amounts to nothing more than a complete rejection and belittling of the majority of Americans’ moral convictions.

What a special Christmas gift from our Senate.

  1. It’s also worth noting that the Obama Administration is on the case, trying to silence criticism over the abortion language. Bart Stupak, the main Democratic opponent to tax-payer funded abortion in the House, has already spoken out regarding this:

  2. Well what do you expect when you have a socialistic congress and a president that doesn’t believe in capitalism or democracy. We’re headed downhill fast and we need to do something to turn this around fast or we won’t be the “United” States for long.
