National Right to Life: “Highly objectionable”

by E. Carroll

-NRL sent a letter to Senator Casey “expressing its strong opposition to language Casey proposed regarding subsidies for insurance plans that cover abortion on demand.”  It said:

“We believe that your proposed language in no way improves the highly objectionable provisions of the Reid bill that authorize subsidies for health plans that cover elective abortion, and that authorize federal mandates for private health plans to cover elective abortion.”

“…The Reid bill, as modified by your proposal, would effectively enshrine in federal law the doctrine that elective abortion is routine health care, and then deign to allow individual citizens to declare themselves to be conscientious objectors.  This is a political fig leaf for a pro-abortion policy – and a cellophane fig leaf, at that.”

-NRL “strongly opposes the abortion language contained in the “manager’s amendment” filed today by U.S. Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (Nv.).  Reid intends to press for Senate approval of the language during the days immediately ahead, without allowing an opportunity for any revisions to be considered.”  http://www.nrlc.org/AHC/Release121909.html
