Approximately 40 House Democrats are prepared to block healthcare reform legislation from coming to the floor should the bill include federal subsidies for abortions, said Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) Friday.
Under language in the Energy and Commerce proposal, one health plan in each health care "exchange" that sells public health insurance must provide coverage for abortion. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is currently in the process of merging the House's three health bills.
Are you ok with taxpayer money potentially funding Abortions in the Health Care Bill?

No. It's a woman's right because of the law, but that doesn't mean that the taxpayer should have to pay for it.
Unfortunately government is making it increasingly easier to shirk personal responsibility. If you don't have to pay for something you consider a mistake, then what is the incentive to avoid repeating the same mistake in the future?

You don't want abortions, yet don't want to help keep Americans Healthy!!!!!
One has nothing to do with the other. You are confusing the subject.

HCR shouldn't pay for elective procedures. If it's medically necessary, yes, but otherwise, NO.
I think that is a logical answer mancos. I agree with the Hyde Amendment, so I would agree with your statement as well. I have to wonder the 'language' of the bill, though if Democrats are concerned about abortion subsisides being in Health Care Reform.
