Help Wisconsin Opt-Out of Obamacare's Abortion Subsidies

Wisconsin Right to Life is working with several legislators on legislation which will allow Wisconsin to opt-out of abortion coverage in the state-based insurance “exchanges” created by Obamacare.  Polling indicates that citizens do not want to subsidize abortion coverage or pay for abortions.  

The new law requires federal agencies to subsidize and administer health plans that will pay for elective abortions.   The law also opens the door to direct federal funding of abortion in Community Health Centers, hundreds of which are operated by Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest abortion provider.

The Executive Order signed by President Obama, widely and inaccurately reported as prohibiting taxpayer abortion funding under the law, cannot overrule the abortion impact of the law.   Unfortunately, the opt-out provision can only be applied to abortion coverage.   Action at the federal level will be needed to negate the impact of direct abortion funding at Community Health Centers.

Opt-out legislation cannot be introduced until January of 2011.  Wisconsin Right to Life is promoting a petition to our new Governor, who will take office then, letting him know that thousands of Wisconsin citizens want Wisconsin to opt-out of subsidizing abortions through health insurance under Obamacare.

You can download the opt-out petition here.   Or, you can sign up online. Urge your friends to do so also.




 

Major Battles Begin Over Federal Taxpayer Dollars for Abortion

Every fall, Congress passes numbers of authorization and appropriations bills to keep the government funded and running.  Every year, we right-to-lifers are successful in  prohibiting the use of federal taxpayer dollars for abortions by adding amendments to dozens of these bills.  It has been fairly routine each year for taxpayer funding of abortions to be prohibited.  NO MORE!

Buoyed by the success of the abortion-laden Obamacare and stung by the President's regulation to prohibit abortion funding in high-risk insurance plans, pro-abortion groups and legislators are more determined than ever to force you, the taxpayer, to pay for abortions in every instance imaginable.

First on the list is funding abortions at military hospitals.  Sen. Roland Burris (D-IL) successfully added an amendment to a defense authorization bill to allow abortion at taxpayer-funded military base hospitals.  Senator John McCain (R-AZ) objected to unanimous consent to allow the bill to be considered.  McCain's objection forces the leadership to find 60 votes to consider the bill.  And, so it will go on bill after bill.

It is strange that legislators would actually vote in favor of taxpayer funding of abortions when polls over the past three decades indicate the American public does not want its taxpayer dollars used in this way.  For those up for re-election, they do so at their own peril.




 


 

Georgia Man Wants to be Killed For His Organs

The culture of death has many facets.   The latest twist?   A Georgia man with Lou Gehrig's disease wants to be killed for his organs.   He believes his diagnosis is "a death sentence, positively, no questions asked."   In an act of what he believes to be magnanimous compassion, Garry Phebus wants other people to live by having his good organs transplanted into them, knowing that removal of his vital organs will cause his death.

Causing his death in this manner is, of course, not legal.   So, Phebus has taken his appeal online to get backing from others.  "I am not suicidal.  I just know that it is a matter of time before I die and wish to do a good thing for those people who have a good life expectancy"  he says in a youtube video.

A new "selling" point for the culture of death.   A macabre one at that.
