Washington, DC - U.S. Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, released the following statement today in response to the Obama Administration spending $160 million on a “high risk” insurance program that will pay for abortions:In Pennsylvania taxpayer funds will be used to pay for all but "sex selection" abortions. New Mexico has also received taxpayer funds for abortion with absolutely no restriction on the abortions performed. Boiled down to its essence, Obama lied. The executive order banning taxpayer funding of abortion is, as many of us said at the time, useless. Bart Stupak could not be reached for comment.
“It is morally wrong to end an unborn human life by abortion. It is also reprehensible to take taxpayer dollars from millions of pro-life Americans and use them to pay for abortions.
“President Obama promised the American people that his health care law would not allow federal funding of abortion. But according to an investigation by the National Right to Life Committee, this allocation for Pennsylvania’s high risk pool will break the president’s promise by using taxpayer dollars to subsidize coverage of nearly any kind of abortion.
“We must stop this immoral offense against human life and against American taxpayers. Congress should act quickly on critical legislation by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA) to stop the administration from using ObamaCare to fund abortions. The best long-term solution, and the one that I remain committed to, is the total repeal of ObamaCare.”
The blogprof reminds us:
Obama's legacy will be that of a dishonorable man whose lies led to the deaths of an untold number of innocent unborn children. The irony-abortion disportionally affects the African American community, therefore, Obama is killing his own constituents.
