Anti-life Senate health care reform bill clears major hurdle

Moments ago, the Senate voted 60-39, a party-line vote, to begin debate on Majority Leader Reid’s anti-life health care reform bill.  The debate and amendment process will begin Monday, November 30th.

Majority Leader Reid’s health care bill:

  1. Allows the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services to require coverage of any and all abortions through the public option.
  2. Creates new federally-funded subsidies for private health plans that cover abortion.
  3. Requires every insurance market to include a private plan that covers abortion.
  4. Fails to sufficiently protect health care entities from discrimination on the basis that the health care entity does not provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions.
  5. Fails to prohibit federal funding of assisted suicide.
