Obama Admin Finalizes Rules: $1 Abortions in ObamaCare
Life News ^ | 3/12/12 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 03/12/2012 4:36:02 PM PDT by wagglebee

It’s official. The concern pro-life organizations had about the ObamaCare legislation funding abortions has been confirmed, as the Obama administration has issued the final rules on abortion funding governing the controversial health care law.

Nestled within the “individual mandate” in the Obamacare act — that portion of the Act requiring every American to purchase government — approved insurance or pay a penalty — is an “abortion premium mandate.” This mandate requires all persons enrolled in insurance plans that include elective abortion coverage to pay a separate premium from their own pockets to fund abortion. As a result, many pro-life Americans will have to decide between a plan that violates their consciences by funding abortion, or a plan that may not meet their health needs.

The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a final rule regarding establishment of the state health care exchanges required under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

As a knowledgeable pro-life source on Capitol Hill informed LifeNews, as authorized by Obamacare, “the final rule provides for taxpayer funding of insurance coverage that includes elective abortion” and the change to longstanding law prohibiting virtually all direct taxpayer funding of abortions (the Hyde Amendment) is accomplished through an accounting arrangement described in the Affordable Care Act and reiterated in the final rule issued today.

“To comply with the accounting requirement, plans will collect a $1 abortion surcharge from each premium payer,” the pro-life source informed LifeNews. “The enrollee will make two payments, $1 per month for abortion and another payment for the rest of the services covered. As described in the rule, the surcharge can only be disclosed to the enrollee at the time of enrollment. Furthermore, insurance plans may only advertise the total cost of the premiums without disclosing that enrollees will be charged a $1 per month fee to pay directly subsidize abortions.”

The pro-life advocate told LifeNews that the final HHS rule mentions, but does not address concerns about abortion coverage in “multi-state” plans administered by the Federal Government’s Office of Personal Management (OPM).

“There is nothing in the Affordable Care Act to prevent some OPM (government administered) plans from covering elective abortion, and questions remain about whether OPM multi-state plans will include elective abortion,” the pro-life source said. “If such plans do include abortion, there are concerns that the abortion coverage will even be offered in states that have prohibited abortion coverage in their state exchanges.”

The final rule indicates “Specific standards for multi-state plans will be described in future rulemaking published by OPM…”

Set to go into effect in 2014, the unconstitutional provisions found in Section 1303 of the Obamacare Act compel enrollees in certain health plans to pay a separate abortion premium from their own pocket, without the ability to decline abortion coverage based on religious or moral objection.

That provision was the subject of a legal document Bioethics Defense Fund’s Dorinda C. Bordlee, lead counsel for the group, submitted to the Supreme Court in February.

“This violates the Free Exercise Clause because religious exemptions are made for groups such as the Amish who morally object to purchasing any insurance, but no exemptions are made for Americans who have religious or moral objections to abortion,” Bordlee said.

“President Obama’s healthcare overhaul includes an ‘abortion premium mandate’ that blatantly violates the conscience rights and First Amendment religious rights of millions of Americans,” AUL president Charmaine Yoest said. “Nowhere in the Constitution does it require Americans to violate their beliefs and pay for abortions.”

ADF Senior Counsel Steven Aden says Americans should not be compelled to pay for other people’s elective abortions.

“No one should be forced to violate their conscience by paying for abortions, but that’s precisely what ObamaCare does,” he explained. “ObamaCare requires that employees enrolled in certain health plans pay a separate insurance premium specifically to pay for other people’s elective abortions and offers no opt-out for religious or moral reasons. Such a mandate cannot survive constitutional scrutiny.”

BDF president and general counsel Nikolas Nikas said the individual mandate not only forces individuals into private purchases, it also effectively mandates personal payments for surgical abortion coverage, without exemption for individual’s religious or moral objections.

He told LifeNews in an email, “Like a Russian nesting doll, the individual mandate has nestled within it a hidden, but equally unconstitutional scheme that effectively imposes an ‘abortion premium mandate’ that violates the free exercise rights of millions of Americans who have religious objections to abortion.”

“No one should be forced to violate their conscience by paying for abortions, but that’s precisely what ObamaCare does,” he explained.

This is no longer about conscience, this is about murdering as many babies as possible.

So, $1/month = my portion of ‘n’ abortions.

Ergo, a baby is worth a fractional dollar under 0bama Deathcare.

0bama, Sibelius, et al are become death. And directly forcing evil on us as participants in death of innocents.

God is not mocked.

$1.00 for abortions? They make it sound like fast food. Are they offering drive-by abortions with a side of fries and a free plastic toy?

The United States is facing the biggest debt crisis in the history of the world. What makes Obama and his supporters think the nation can afford this?

No, because birth-control pills are FREE under Obamacare (one wouldn’t even need to make a co-pay).

“The Department of Health and Human Services has issued a final rule...”

It’s not the final rule. Not by a long shot. The DHHS is temporary. Denying God does not change the truth.

These murderous fools are too ignorant and self-absorbed to understand who they are angering.

That will be next: that makes $2 per month.

Then it will be for cosmetic surgery @ $2 per month bringing us to $4/month.

Then we'll have to pay for sexual re-orientation treatments and surgery, probably $5 per month. Now we're up to $9/month.

Get the picture everyone?

By aborting the unborn, and death panels for us old folks, there won’t be any worry about over-population.

Oh wait, I forgot about the incoming swarms of illegals.

Five centuries ago in England, many were called to martyrdom for standing and bearing witness to the Truth of God - not so different today. But I never thought I would live to see this happen in the U.S.A.

One dollar. One measley, depreciated US dollar. One dollar for a human life. To snuff out the lives of over 40 million unborn souls is one thing; to continue the practice that will bring that total to tenfold that for $1 apiece is about as evil as I can imagine.

Also, this reminds me of how the Germans started out their “Final Solution” goal. At first, they tried things like bullets - too expensive per person so they lined them up front-to-back to get two or three per bullet.

Then, they tried putting them in sealed trucks with the exhausts piped into the cargo hold...that worked, but they had to drive around to kill everyone and that took GAS - too much.

Starvation - required too many guards, added CAPOs, but still required guards but not as many...then, finally Zyklon B, the efficient terminator.

In November 2008, this country elected the human equivalent of Zyklon B - Barack Hussein Obama.

If this isn’t overturned by the SCOTUS, America is finished. It will — I am completely serious — be time for God-fearing people to consider options like agitating for secession, or emigration to someplace like Chile or Costa Rica.

-—— This is no longer about conscience, this is about murdering as many babies as possible.-——

Of course. Nothing is beneath a guy who’s down for infanticide.

OTOH, he’s soooooo cool. When voting, you have to balance these things.

The pro-choice crowd will argue that "our tax dollars have to go to things we don't approve of like war" so, ergo, we who are pro-life should shut up and pay the tax as ordered.

In response, a thought just occurred to me though. Now I don't have the figures, but I doubt that the total deaths from all the skirmishes we've been in since the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973 surpass the 40,000,000+ murders of innocents just in this country.

And Facebook is all filled up with the “Kony 2012” propoganda - a guy that hasn’t been seen in Uganda since 2006.

Why do many Americans care more about Africans than about other Americans?

"As described in the rule, the surcharge can only be disclosed to the enrollee at the time of enrollment. Furthermore, insurance plans may only advertise the total cost of the premiums without disclosing that enrollees will be charged a $1 per month fee to pay directly subsidize abortions.”

In the unlikely event that this becomes effective law, everyone should pay their health insurance bill, but pay one dollar less per month. Put in the memo line: "child butchery payment witheld."
