Why are Pro-Life concerns called and belittled to (angry mob) of what preserving lifers ?

■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

  • . Lawmakers also should deliberate this proposed health care overhaul in a civil and serious way that doesn’t include tactics like reconciliation to ram through health reform that many Americans don’t want.

  • I love (<----sarcasm) how some conceited people try to diminish the value of your question because it is not something they give two craps about ((see above)).

    I hope these political loons will open their ears and shut their mouths so they can hear what the people are trying to tell them.

    The big thing is that they need to do it in a "civilized tone" and normally they don't. THAT is the problem!

  • I actually have no problem with the government providing funding and support for women who face a crisis and make decisions regarding their body.

  • Of course they could and they will if the Dems have their public plan. They have already passed or tried to pass many bills allowing tax monies to be used in abortions so why would you believe them when they say "No we won't". Several amendments have been introduced by republicans to put in the bill specifics that say NO funds would be used in abortions but all have been tossed out by Dems. Kinda obvious in what they plan to do dontcha think?

  • why should it not cover a procedure that's legal? Please don't give me a religious reason b/c by that rationale we couldn't have it cover blood transfusions b/c JW don't believe that's right for religious reasons.

  • 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".
