Do you think it's good that our tax dollars will pay for abortions under Obama's Plan? WHY or WHY NOT?

As most of you Obama has promised activists with Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion business, that the first thing he would do as president is overturn every pro-life law in all 50 states.

He also supports federal funding of abortion. He opposes the Hyde Amendment which prevents federal tax dollars from being used to pay for abortion.

Here's the proof:

Do you agree with it? Why or Why Not?

Even if you are pro-choice do you think your tax dollars should go towards someone's abortion?

  • Your first source does not attribute the claim. Journalistically, that is poor practice.

    Your other two sources cannot be accessed as you put ellipses into the links. please post the full links.

    Right now, all you've got is unsubstantiated rumor.

  • But in answer to the question...I'd rather pay for an abortion than for some of the other stuff our government has paid for over the years.

  • well if this is true, there really isnt anything to worry about. Its not gonna happen. For one people do not want to pay for someone to kill a baby and two, that still goes against your rights as an individual. In my opinion I think that is tosh! Still voting for him!

  • Our tax dollars already pay for abortions through medicaid and other state insurance programs.

    I don't like abortion, but I'm less concerned about that than where some of my other tax dollars are going. You can stop paying your taxes if you don't like where they are going, but they'll still throw you in jail for it. There are many anti-war activists in jail for not paying their taxes because they wouldn't pay to support a war.

  • No I dont think it should. I cannot support someone who wants to take a precious life. Just like I do not support Hitler who wanted to take the life of the jews. Yes it is strikingly similar. Planned Parent Hood and Concentraction camps. So similar it should sicken everyone.
    So no I couldnt do that!

    Everyone who supports abortions has been BORN.

    No, I don't want my tax dollars going towards abortions.

  • I think anyone who needs an abortion should be able to get it - regardless of their ability to pay. If they can't afford to have the abortion, they can't afford to raise a child and it costs society way more in the long run.
