Fox News is reporting that that Representative Bart Stupak (D – Michigan) says that he was told by another prominent Democrat in Congress that the current health care reform legislation will fund abortions with taxpayer money.
Stupak claims that Representative Henry Waxman (D – California) told him that Democrats “want” to fund abortions.
“‘We want to pay for abortions,'” Stupak claims Waxman told him on audio being played on Fox.
Fox is also reporting that current legislation which Obama and leading Democrats are trying to ram into law will take a dollar out of everyone’s health insurance premiums and use that money to fund abortions; premiums which will be mandated by law for everyone to pay or else face fines and possible jail time.
Megyn Kelly, of America Live, is reporting that “one dollar” of every insurance premium will be applied to fund abortions.
Stupak leads a coalition of Democrats who are against any Federal funding of abortion. The Stupak Amendment, which was erased by the Senate, had specific and clear language prohibiting abortion with Federal money.
The current legislation under consideration by the House is the Senate bill which was passed on Christmas Eve of last year; this bill has no specific language outlawing taxpayer-funded abortion.
