■Funding abortions with taxpayer dollars: This concern has been raised in all three House committees and the Senate HELP committee. Based on the passage of an amendment to require at least one insurance plan to cover abortion each geographical region and the failure of several amendments to prohibit federal funds for abortion services, taxpayers could end up financing abortion.
“A serious health reform effort warrants a serious discussion,” Health Affairs Editor Susan Dentzer said at the start of the press club event. She’s absolutely right.
Americans should have the opportunity to voice their concerns (in a civilized tone) at the town halls this month and actually be heard by their representatives

Abortions should NEVER be used as a form of birth control. There are so many methods out there for controlling conception that abortions should not be an option for that. People HAVE to be responsible for their actions. If you participate in the act it takes to get pregnant, then YOU and the father are the only 2 that are responsible for the child you created. Not me, not the public! Unwanted pregnancies are a result of behavior. It isn't an illness. If you don't want to get pregnant, you have to be responsible and use contraceptives and not abortion. Yes, yes, I know there can be extenuating circumstances. I'm just talking about "birth control".
