Life Links 11/19/09

Americans United for Life has posted a summary of Senator Reid’s health care reform legislation (2.5 MB PDF) as it related to abortion. Their conclusion:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last night unveiled a health care bill which provides for an unprecedented expansion of federally-funded abortion. The bill includes pro-abortion language and mirrors the false compromise Capps Amendment from the House debate — it allows the public option to include abortion coverage and provides federal subsidies for private plans which cover abortion.

National Right to Life’s press release calls Reid’s abortion funding language “completely unacceptable.”

Operation Rescue has posted Caitlin Bruce’s lawsuit against Michigan abortionist Alberto Hodari. Bruce claims Hodari and an assistant performed an abortion on her after she told them to stop.

The RH Reality Check blog has posted an article originally published in Ms. Magazine about how one federal employee named D.J. Feldman couldn’t get her health insurance to cover her aborting her child with anencephaly.
Feldman is speaking out now because of her outrage that the notorious Stupak-Pitts amendment to the House health reform measure would extend such federal bans on abortion coverage to the millions of women who are enrolled in the private insurance market.
But wait....if the Stupak amendment extends the federal ban on abortion coverage to federally-subsidized plans then isn’t it keeping the status quo on federal government’s policy towards funding or subsidizing abortion?
