At an August 12th townhall meeting in San Jose California. House Democrat Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) told us that abortion would be covered in the socialized medicine bill proposed by Obama and Democrats.
QUESTION: "[This is a ] health care plan that is covering
abortion, which we know that over 90% of abortions are
purely elective, not medically necessary. Why is this being
covered when abortion is clearly not health care?"
REP. LOFGREN: "[This is a] basic benefit plan developed by,
um, health professionals... Abortion will be covered as a
benefit by one or more of the health care plans available to
Americans, and I think it should be."
Funny how Obama supporters were telling us that it wouldn't be and saying that we were making stuff up saying it would be. Now, like clockwork, it's time to bait and switch...which means they'll start telling us why it should be in the healthcare bill funded by our tax dollars.
