Student upset over abortion mandate PDF Print E-mail

Dear Editor:
I thought that the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) was not going to happen and that taxpayers would not be forced to fund abortions.
However, the abortion lobby has found a way to get the cornerstone issues of FOCA passed and they got taxpayers to fund abortions through the healthcare bills.
There are no provisions that explicitly states abortions should not be funded by taxpayers in the healthcare bill. That means that you and I will be paying for abortions.
Not only that but FOCA mandated abortion to be covered under all healthcare plans.
Guess what is in the healthcare bill now? That’s right. Abortion is now a mandate and must be covered by all health insurance plans.
I don’t want to be forced to subsidize abortions and I don’t think the government has the right to force its citizens to pay for such a procedure.
Tell Congress to vote against the healthcare bill if specific language is not included that stops taxpayers from funding abortions.
