As it concerns President Barak Obama’s current health care legislation, which is to be voted in Congress, the following was received earlier today from a concerned reader of ours, Brian Jenkins.
“I want to encourage all Bronxites to contact Senators Gillibrand and Schumer as well as Congressman Crowley to ask them to vote against the current health care legislation in Congress.
Under the healthcare plan, virtually every American will eventually be in a plan that includes abortion by requiring individuals to buy health insurance that meets minimum benefits standards determined by unelected government bureaucrats. If the law does not clearly state that abortion is excluded, abortion automatically becomes a minimum required benefit.
The healthcare bill amounts to a bailout for the abortion industry, which is swimming in profits as it is. Taxpayers should not be forced to subsidize this industry. Since abortion is mandated in the healthcare bill, every insurance plan will have to cover it and provide means necessary to obtain an abortion.
So let’s tell our representatives to vote “no” on the healthcare bill. No one should be forced to pay for abortions.”
Professionals estimate that approximately 46 million abortions take place each year. That means, on any given day this violent and disturbing procedure happens approximately 126,000 times.
A different, even more complicated issue is at hand when a woman has been the victim of rape or incest.
