Abortion is not health care

Dear Editor,

Unless the final healthcare bill includes Stupak-like language, government subsidized insurance coverage for abortion is still a reality.

Abortion is not healthcare, as the abortion industry would like Americans to believe, and it should not be mandated under any health insurance plan, especially one that Americans will be forced to subsidize. The proposed healthcare bill amounts to a bailout for the abortion industry, which is swimming in profits already.

As it now stands, there will be private insurance options that will include abortions subsidized by the government.

Tell Congress to vote no on any healthcare bill that does not include Stupak language to explicitly exclude abortion from the healthcare bill.
