Will the Hyde Amendment keep abortion out of “Health Care Reform”?


It’s amazing that politicians (with President Obama leading the charge) continue to insist that these Health Care reform bills will not subsidize abortions. “They lie!”

If it weren’t for the fact that I long ago already lost faith in trusting anything that comes from a politician’s mouth, I’d be saddened and shocked. But in fact, it’s just more of the same.

At least some have been honest enough to admit abortion will be covered. But most of them continue to twist the truth. And not only do they twist the truth, but they go a step further and from high horse proclaim that we’re being lied to and misinformed by those that say otherwise.

Meanwhile, attempts to add a simple line to the bill that would prohibit this bill from subsidizing abortion has been continually struck down by Democrats.  That’s all you really need to know.

You’ll also hear a lot of them say that we don’t need to add this simple restriction to the bill because we have the Hyde Amendment.  While this might seem reasonable at first, but it is actually just more of the same lies and deceit.
