Skip to comments.Prenatal coverage would be available to illegal immigrants under bill (AUDIO)

State lawmakers have advanced a bill that would restore prenatal care to mothers who lost Medicaid coverage two years ago, including illegal immigrants.
Sen. Kathy Campbell of Lincoln sponsors LB 599, saying that Nebraskas practice of funding prenatal care of the unborn child of poor women should return, including the unborn child of an illegal immigrant.
The child will be a U.S. citizen at its birth, Campbell stated in her opening. Would we not want that child to be healthy? Would we not want healthy babies?
Nebraska had provided prenatal care through Medicaid until 2010 when federal officials objected. Approximately 1,600 women lost coverage, more than 1,000 were in the country illegally. Under the bill, coverage would be restored at the start of July. The total cost would be $2.6 million dollars annually. The states share would total $654,000.
Speaker of the Legislature, Sen. Mike Flood of Norfolk, told colleagues during floor debate the issue presented a tension between the rule of law and a traditional pro-life position. Flood said because the bill would benefit the baby, the issue tilts toward the pro-life position.
We are a pro-life state and this is a pro-life issue, Flood said during floor debate. We have to balance the interests here. We have to look at the equities on both sides. Were going to pay for the delivery. Were going to pay for the birth. That child is going to be an American citizen. Lets provide the prenatal care for low-income women and lets be pro-life.

Don’t forget about the sex change coverage for illegals!
All those in Nebraska should get out as fast as possible.
Personally I’d prefer to see the babies GONE. Let Mexico take care of it’s own for a change.
I’ll be writing out a check for several thousand dollars soon to Uncle Sugar.
Good to know it’s going to a good cause: deadbeat, lawbreaking foreigners!
And then Libtards sit back and wonder why Doctors, Lawyers, Engineers and all the other educated people are limiting their families to 2 children.
It’s the cost of raising those kids; you see, those RESPONSIBLE people know that they can only afford to raise a family size of ‘x’ - because they have taxes to pay, mouths to feed and the limited family budget only goes so far.
Meanwhile, the uneducated, irresponsbile adults reproduct like flies. Why? Because child care is free, daycare is free, the food is free, educational opportunties are free - there are even special programs for them (free) that people who work have to pay for.
It seems that people on Welfare have more disposable income than people who work.
Got problem you socialists/commies who are reading this board? Think Europe and how quickly they are sinking into the abyss with their stupid acceptance of mass emigration and socialism!!! Hell, their middle-class is quickly eroding into poverty class. You ain't seen nothing yet. Forget Greece. Watch Spain, Portugal, Ireland, and others. Socialism in those countries is going bankrupt. They won't be able to pay their own debts. Watch.
Everything for everybody. Yeah, that's the ticket.
"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. ― Alexis de Tocqueville"
"The trouble with socialism is that eventually you run out of other peoples' money.
- Margaret Thatcher.
Or..."They [socialists] always run out of other people's money. It's quite a characteristic of them."
No matter who made what quote, the concept is valid. We witness it everyday with our welfare class. As we descend into a lower standard of morality, our system is doomed to major conflict.
The "gimmes" want and want while giving nothing back. Got Obamabucks? They have their EBT cards that gives them a better standard-of-living than many around the world. But yet, they riot over new sneakers in stores. They riot when nature hits. They riot for past so-called injustices, when none have anything to do with the past. They riot just to loot (cool...more free stuff). They riot just to destroy (I'm pissed so I think I will destroy something).
They riot just because and none of them have an inkling why, other than their race-baiters agitate them. It just feels good because they think they deserve to riot for some obscure slavery thing that few living today had any experience.
I'm done with their rioting. I'm done with obama's administration over-stepping its Constitutional bounds. I will NOT comply any longer and will defend my home if the rioters get near.
Think COMMUNITY NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH. Talk to your neighbors and friends. Build an operational plan of action.
If Zimmerman is not found guilty and not hung out to dry, and if obama is not re-elected, we are facing nation wide riots. I firmly believe that the "gimmes" and racists WILL go outside their shithole inner cities to attack suburban communities this time.
Remember the Koreans during the Rodney King (1992) riots, standing on their roofs with rifles? Not one of those stores were burned down! Not one! I watched. We can do that also if the bums and scum try to invade our towns.
Talk to your neighbors, folks. Neighborhood Watch is your right! No matter what comes of the Zimmerman issue, it is still your right to defend yourself. Talk, organize, plan, and execute if need be.
Funny. They don’t seem to push abortion on the illegals.
UPDATE : GOOD NEWS....Lincoln, NE (AP) - Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman has promised to veto a bill that would restore taxpayer-funded prenatal care coverage for illegal immigrants.
Big question, are there enough votes to override the veto?
