Abortion Coverage back in Health Bill

cracked upSenate passes measure that could allow mandatory abortion coverage in health-care bill

The US Senate today approved the “Mikulski amendment” to the proposed health-care reform bill, paving the way for mandatory abortion coverage in health insurance programs.

The Mikulski amendment stipulates that health insurance carriers must cover any procedure that is classified by the Health Resource and Services Administration (HRSA) as proper preventive care.

Thus if the HRSA said that abortion is preventive care, all insurers would be required by law to cover abortion payments.

This ad in USA Today “cracked” me up. How true!
