Saturday, August 22, 2009 confirms abortion coverage, Obama wrong

We noted earlier that President Obama misled the nation when he denied that abortion would be covered and funded in his health care plan. Now has confirmed the truth.

From the summary:
Obama has said in the past that "reproductive services" would be covered by his public plan, so it’s likely that any new federal insurance plan would cover abortion unless Congress expressly prohibits that. Low- and moderate-income persons who would choose the "public plan" would qualify for federal subsidies to purchase it. Private plans that cover abortion also could be purchased with the help of federal subsidies. Therefore, we judge that the president goes too far when he calls the statements that government would be funding abortions "fabrications."
