Should taxpayers pay for abortions?

I know there has been heavy debate that if the healthcare bill is in fact passed and put into effect whether or not abrotions should be covered. What do you think? I am not asking if you are for or against abortions or asking for drama. I would like to have a nice healthy debate without people getting nasty and rude.

I personally am not for universal healthcare anyway, but if it does get passed I do not want to be responsible for paying for abortions. I think it should stick to private clinics like Planned Parenthood and such unless the abortion is 100% medically necessary.

  • NO, I do not think taxes should be used to cover abortions. It is an ELECTIVE procedure in the first place. If a therapeutic termination is medically needed they are covered anyway. I personally could never choose abortion. I want others to have the choice for themselves though. The ket word is choice.

  • No. They shouldn't pay for viagra, implants, botox or lipo either. Corrective and necessary, yes. Elective, no.
