Abortion and ObamaCare

In Tennessee and Arizona, insurance exchanges created under ObamaCare are barred from covering abortions. Pro-life groups claim this trend will continue as more states realize that the bill passed earlier this year allows states to block abortion coverage by private exchanges. (Missouri’s legislature sent a similar measure to Gov. Jay Nixon.)


Pro-abortion members of Congress are incensed, according to the Associated Press and Fox News:

"Implementation of this reform should be about increasing access to health care and increasing choices, not taking them away," said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., a member of the Senate leadership.

Expect the White House to close this loop with strong-arm tactics.  When insurance companies discovered that ObamaCare permitted insurance companies to exclude children with pre-existing conditions, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius simply dictated the loophole closed.  Sheepish insurance companies yielded.

Dictatorships are efficient. They are also inhumane.
