Abortion is Not Health Care

January 26, 2011 | 1 comment | Posted in Health, Politics | Tags: , ,

Pennsylvania just took a step forward in protecting your rights and the rights of the unborn in our health care system.

The Pennsylvania Senate Banking and Insurance Committee today, January 25, approved Senate Bill 3 by a 12-2 vote. Introduced by Sen. Don White (R-Indiana County) along with 25 co-sponsors, this straightforward, two-and-a-half page bill would ensure that no taxpayer funds are used to subsidize abortion coverage in health insurance plans.

SB 3 is necessary to ensure that Pennsylvania opts out of providing abortion coverage in the Health Insurance Exchange mandated by the new federal healthcare plan (aka “Obamacare”). Specific language in the new health care reform law permits a state to opt-out of allowing insurance plans that cover abortions to participate in that state’s exchanges.

Currently, five other states have already passed similar legislation. Pennsylvania is one of the many other states currently working on passage of this opt-out legislation.

SB 3 is necessary to keep our insurance laws consistent with Pennsylvania’s current Abortion Control Act. Pennsylvania does not use taxpayer dollars to fund abortions and we need to make sure it stays that way!

Today was a step forward but we still need passing votes in the Full State Senate and the State House of Representatives to make this bill a reality.

SB 3 ensures that your tax dollars do not subsidize abortion insurance coverage. Abortion is not health care. Give your State Senator and Representative a call and help us make sure they’re reminded of this.

You’ll burn for killing your child. You’ll burn for marrying a homosexual human being. You’ll burn for.. whatelse? Talk to God for me and let me know. Imposing faith onto others… You’ll burn for destroying the innocence of young minds who have the right to make they’re own decisions and observations in life. Ask god what he thinks about that. Yall speak of hell as if you know it. Marriage as if you know it. They are ideas in which we all hold a diffrent understanding. Any guidlines deemed fit to be placed upon an ideal are irrefutable, but also unable to be evidenced in favor. People… groups like these give me the feeling of being ashamed of my race, that of humans. Weve made emmense improvements in our societies over the years, yet humans must remain that think it fair and just to mold innocent minds into the plasters created by our own jaded minds. How are we to progress in this case? Racism was an ideal that was taught with guidlines, not an inherent geneological trait. Tolerance, open-mindedness, and decision making abilities must be left to grow in us all, as it is the only ideal we are born with, never to be taught or enforced. God bless you my sisters and brothers of the state. All of us.
