Tell Congress: Take Abortion out of ObamaCare

Contact your senators (click here) for support of S.1467, and contact your congressman (click here) for support of H.R.1179.

-- From "Bill Hits Back on Obama Admin’s Forcing Abortion Drug Coverage" by Steven Ertelt, 8/4/11

. . . the Obama administration has approved a recommendation from the Institute of Medicine suggesting that it force insurance companies to pay for birth control and drugs that can cause abortions under the Obamacare government-run health care program.

However, legislation sponsored by pro-life Rep. Jeff Fortenberry, HR 1179, and several pro-life members of the U.S. House [along with S. 1467 introduced by Sen. Roy Blunt] would help mitigate those conscience concerns.

The legislation allows an individual or institutional health care provider or health care plan to not be compelled to cover or refer for services or items (drugs) that violate their religious or moral views.

The poll did not include mention of the ella drug — billed as a morning after pill but a drug that actually causes an abortion of a unique human being days after conception. Still, a plurality of Americans opposes the requirement the Obama administration put forward this week and they tell Rasmussen that they would like to have the option of picking their health plans based on cost and what coverage they need.
