From GOP Minority Leader Boehner's blog: here

Speaker Pelosi’s Government-Run Health Plan Will Require a Monthly Abortion Premium
Posted by GOP Leader Press Office on November 5th, 2009

Follow @GOPLeader on Twitter for updates.

Health care reform should not be used as an opportunity to use federal funds to pay for elective abortions. Health reform should be an opportunity to protect human life - not end it.

Unfortunately, Speaker Pelosi’s 2,032-page government takeover of health care does just that. On line 17, p. 110, section 222 under “Abortions for which Public Funding is Allowed” the Health and Human Services Secretary is given the authority to determine when abortion is allowed under the government-run plan. The Speaker’s plan also requires that at least one insurance plan offered in the Exchange covers abortions.

What is even more alarming is that a monthly abortion premium will be charged of all enrollees in the government-run plan. It’s right there on line 16, page 96, section 213, under “Insurance Rating Rules.” The premium will be paid into a U.S. Treasury account - and these federal funds will be used to pay for the abortion services.

Section 213 describes the process in which the Health Benefits Commissioner is to assess the monthly premiums that will be used to pay for elective abortions under the government-run plan. The Commissioner must charge at a minimum $1 per enrollee per month.

A majority of Americans believe that health care plans should not be mandated to provide elective abortion coverage, and a majority of Americans do not believe government health care plans should include abortion coverage. Currently, federal appropriations bills include language known as the Hyde Amendment that prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for elective abortions under the Medicare and Medicaid programs, while another provision, known as the Smith Amendment, prohibits federal funding of abortion under the federal employees’ health benefits plan.

Speaker Pelosi’s 2,032-page health care monstrosity is an affront to the American people and drastically moves away from current policy. The American people deserve more from their government than being forced to pay for abortion.

House Republicans are offering a common-sense, responsible solution that would reduce health care costs and expand access while protecting the dignity of all human life. The Republican plan, available at HealthCare.GOP.gov, would codify the Hyde Amendment and prohibit all authorized and appropriated federal funds from being used to pay for abortion. And under the Republican plan, any health plan that includes abortion coverage may not receive federal funds.

A 2,032 page WEALTH SHARE PLAN is an abortion of epic proportions!

No surprise here. Fuck this whole mess. I can't get over that so many people can still support it with a straight face. Fucking idiots.

So, all you "If you don't like abortion, don't have one," folks... You see why your argument is bullshit? I cannot (and will not) pay for any such thing. My money is a representation of my work... I will not work for the death of innocents.

Heck, if abortion coverage only costs me $/month I'm getting it!

Does that cover literally me or, like um, anything I might cause?

Considering the size of the bill; there will be all sorts of things that pop up in it.

This bill needs to be stopped because if they do pass it, and it becomes law; they will be forcing people into a corner.

I disagree. I think this bill simply articulates, in legal language, the corner in which we already find ourselves.

Please remember folks, they don't think of it as "your" money. They see it as "their" money that they're spending on your cheap, whining, uneducated asses.

Seriously.

Put a fork in this crap, it's done! There's already enough opposition amongst the Blue Dogs to keep this from becoming a reality, add to it the CBO's numbers and the fact it's going to pay for abortions, yeah...this crap is done, time to flush it and Pelosi down the shitter!

Where do you think Pelosi is going? Her supporters don't think this bill goes far enough!

I'm not sure how you could make it go farther, but...

Yea, but it hasn't been free in the past. In this case, i think a dollar spent will save thousands in the future. It would be especially effective if they would give welfare the ax.

Oh, and I personally would not choose abortion as an option.

ETA: I also do not support govt run healthcare in any way. Just saying.
