Proposed health care reform won’t provide funding for abortions

Posted on August 16, 2009 | in Labor News | by

August continues to be a scorcher for members of Congress as they host town halls around the country and try to highlight the truth of the health care bill being drafted. One common assertion by health care protesters is that the bill contains language that will put taxpayer dollars toward abortions. Not true says Laurie Rubiner, vice president of public policy and advocacy with Planned Parenthood:

[Rubiner]: “Nothing could be further from the truth. There is nothing in any of the health care bills that even references abortion, or, for that matter, any other specific medical procedure.”
