Who do you want making your healthcare decisions? You and your doctor or the government? This new healthcare bill is full of government nannygrabbing our personal freedoms. People ought to be free to self govern in issues as personal and private as the health of ourselves and our most precious loved ones.
Of all the issues facing families right now, this one is near the top of the heap. Cradle to the grave oversight? Do we need it? And what about the moral implications of forcing a population deeply morally divided on abortion to fund abortions on demand?
Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said on National Public Radio that this healthcare legislation would be “a platform to extend access to abortion to all women in the United States.”
OneNewsNow reports Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee, on the new language recently approved in the bill:
“…[T]he fact is the language that the House committee adopted over our objections, and which [Richards’] side supports, would explicitly authorize the new government plan — which would be available to every American — to cover abortion on demand,” the pro-life leader explains. “It would also allow federal subsidies to flow to private health plans that could cover abortion on demand.”
There are many chilling aspects of this bill, but the militant abortion angle, forcing people to do what they are morally repulsed by, is not the spirit of freedom. If for that reason alone, this bill should go down in flames.
