UHC to pay for abortions?

I was reading yahoo news and found the article on this. I am beyond shocked that the gov't would think it is the taxpayers responsibility to pay for unwanted pregnancies. I am of the opinion that the one chooses to become pregnant by not taking the right precautions should foot the bill for it. Comments anyone?

  • I heard about this a few weeks ago, here on CM of all places.

    I'm on the fence about it. On one hand, no, I don't want to pay for someone else's abortion. On the other, a lot of us also don't want to support others' kids through gov't assistance. So it's hard to say. Maybe if abortions were covered, the number of people needing gov't assitance would go down?
