I keep seeing this is it true?

I was reading a post and i'm sure you know which one or will. And some of the replies said that tax-dollars pay for abortion. Is that true? I thought if you got one you had to pay for it, I'm pro-life and only believe a abortion is ok if you were raped or something of that nature. But anyway is it true? If so can you give me a link for it I'm am very interested to find out why.

  • Yes it is true, if you are on state medical and want an abortion they will pay for it, a person I know did it and was shocked when she told me.

    Why, so the state doesnt have to pay for the baby ie foodstamps, medical or other forms of assistance. Its a one time payment vs. a lifetime

  • Medicaid is only required to cover abortion in cases of rape, incest or if the pregnancy is life threatening for the mother. Now...I'm sure that anyone wanting one will find a doc that will say it's one of these things..so there you have it.

  • Some states fund state money for abortions.

    Per the Hyde Ammendment, Federal Money cannot be used to fund an abortion for situations other that rape, incest, and medical emergency.

    However, Obama wants to repeal (do away) with the Hyde Ammendment. Which opens up critics to be concerned with Federally Funded Abortions would be used as a form of "birth control" (Not saying I agree, but that is the debtate). I do think the Hyde Ammendment needs to remain as is.

  • Actually, as tax payers; yes we are paying for abortions whether it's rape or medically nessecary. It's called Planned Parenthood. They are federally funded program, and they provide abortions.
