Public Health Care and Abortions: Do You Trust the Fox in the Hen House?

In Colorado, our constitution prohibits public tax dollars being used on abortions. Its common sense and should remain so.

Currently, there is also a federal ban on using tax dollars to fund abortions.

However for years, liberals have wanted a public health care option that would include funding abortions with your tax dollars. And they are about the business of undoing these current restrictions.

That same storm is raising its ugly head again in Congress. Despite denials by the abortions rights crowd to contrary(akin to asking a fox in the hen house if the chickens are safe), Obama himself has affirmed that he wants health care reforms to cover reproductive services.

Congresswoman Louise Capps, a Democrat from California has introduced an amendment to one of the House bills that would allow abortions to be paid for with beneficiary premiums rather than federal dollars. This plan also requires private insurers who want to participate in government subsidized policies to offer two plans- one that would cover abortions and another one that would not. But that is a shell game and either way you slice it, directly or indirectly your tax dollars are going to pay for abortions.

So who is telling the truth?

So my question- do you trust the fox in the hen house to tell you if the chickens are well?
