While the new healthcare bill does “include a provision that prevents people from receiving tax credits for private insurance plans that cover abortion, except in cases of rape, incest, or a threat to the life of the pregnant woman,” it still leaves the door open to “potentially allow people to use refundable tax credits to pay for abortion.”
The article points out, and insurance companies agree, that the language on abortion in the bill is confusing. Even the Family Research Council has voiced concern.
The article has some good facts, but it goes a bit overboard on making the point that the bill makes it very hard for women to get abortions except in certain circumstances.
But isn’t that the point?
It is time that we stop calling abortion healthcare and start calling it what it is: the unnecessary ending of an innocent life. Let’s pray the final bill expresses this reality.
