Secret Planned Parenthood Memo: Stop Maternity Coverage
Since becoming pregnant, I have learned a hard reality. I have private insurance because I am self employed. I knew that my insurance plan did not offer maternity coverage.

To Life News: He is not the commander in chief of our country. He’s commander in chief of the armed forces.
It might be a good article for you to cover Obama’s gift of hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to an organization in Kenya that seeks to liberalize the abortion laws there. This is totally illegal.
I was told this, When Obama enacted his health care reform, he mandated that maternity coverage not be available to any private insurance company.
I just re-upped our private insurance. Would be no problem to get maternity coverage, in my state, through my insurer.
Now, I will allow that it's more expensive than a "Non-Maternity Coverage" Policy. But getting it would be pretty darn easy.
IMHO, there's plenty wrong with Obamacare. However, the best way to fight it is with facts, not demagoguery. All of the facts in the world go out the window if opponents can point to one lie.
I find this nugget to be far more interesting from this article:
‘’When I worked at Planned Parenthood, there was something that we were not allowed to talk about. If we didnt talk about it, then maybe no one else would either. It was called the Jaffe Memo. In 1969, Planned Parenthood was asked by the government to produce some ideas to help with overpopulation. They did just that. What is in the memo as a solution to overpopulation is astonishing.’’
Mid 20th century - maternity (pre-natal, delivery & hospitalization) expenses were not included in private or group health insurance policies.
BECAUSE -Conception and childbirth were not considered illnesses or accidents.
When finally added to coverage, (beginning with pregnancy complications, miscarriage and septicemia) - pregnancy was still subject to pre-existing exclusions.
To eliminate maternity coverage after the insurable risk has been evaluated and included for decades - is clearly manipulative and political. This is confiscation of private enterprise and competition by the insurance carriers.
Insurance coverage guarantees the cost of item covered will continuously rise. There are two forms of medical treatments which have consistently become better and more affordable. One is Lasik surgery and the other is cosmetic surgery. This is because they are not covered by insurance.
Insurance is socialist wealth redistribution. My guess is that if we simply did away with all forms of socialist insurance that the cost of medical care would be reasonable to everyone.
The abortion rate in Russia, where family planning has been practiced since the 1917 revolution is 6 abortions per woman during her fertile life. This is apparently because abortions are free but contraception and pregnancy cost money.
Eliminate Planned Parenthood and International Planned Parenthood. DEFUND socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.
It’s interesting that maternity coverage and leave and other benefits related to maternity were pioneered by feminists who sought to level the playing field in the workplace. Now conservatives are the ones trying to uphold them, in the teeth of the Obama depopulation campaign.
The organization title is a fraud!
They are only interested in ABORTION, and NO PARENTHOOD.
Maternity in the 1960’s. Before maternity coverage:
Physician pre-natal and delivery: $75
Maternity hospital 3 days all inclusive: $125
1960 VW $2000
Maternity in 2011.
Physician pre-natal and delivery: $7,000
Cost of new car $20,000
It’s not true that private insurance won’t give maternity coverage.
And Life News would do better to show a photographic reproduction of the 1969 memo, than to retype it.
I haven’t been following closely, but I believe you can now get coverage for the infant before he or she is born. I was socked with 8 days of hospital care for the baby.
The 70’s was the big push for reducing “over-Population”
If fact One of Zero’s Czars was the main spokesperson for the movement.
It helped make abortion and euthanasia “acceptable” to society as a whole. Who would have thought back then that this bunch would actually be running the U.S Government one day. More like a nightmare come true.
