It’s Official… Despite Obama’s Many, Many Promises, Obamacare Funds Abortion After All

President Obama repeatedly promised during the healthcare debate that Obamacare would not fund abortions.

He lied.

It looks like it’s official. Obamacare will pay for abortions.
Lief News reported:

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).

    Obama Admin Finalizes Rules: $1 Abortions in ObamaCare, wow, they really want to eliminate a growing population. Obama: KNOW ASSISTANCE FOR YOU, THE BOTCHED ABORTION. NONE!

    Do you feel yet like you live in Red China or Communist Russia yet?

    There was a time when I would have been shocked by news like this, but after nearly four years of this, all I feel is familiar resignation. All we can do is hope that we depose this commie come November.

    Climate “Experts” Propose Global One-child Policy, Socialism, Taxes, Carbon Rationing

    Among the climate “solutions” proposed by scientists, officials, and others for the Cancun COP16 “global-warming” summit are ideas like a global “one-child policy” modeled on Communist China’s brutal system, a carbon rationing scheme for every person on Earth, world socialism, and a series of global taxes paid to the United Nations.

    Prominent scientists have offered some of the more extreme suggestions. Professor Kevin Anderson, for example, director of a “Centre for Climate Change Research” in the U.K., authored a paper urging the adoption of a World War II-style rationing system — for carbon: “The Second World War and the concept of rationing is something we need to seriously consider if we are to address the scale of the problem we face,” Anderson explained in an article, urging world rulers to limit electricity and prohibit food imports, among other things.

    “I am not saying we have to go back to living in caves,” he said. “Our emissions were a lot less ten years ago and we got by ok then.” His suggestion would involve a total freeze on economic growth in developed countries and “carbon rations” for every person on the planet.

    Perhaps trying to make his colleagues seem moderate by comparison, another British scientist writing for the Royal Society said such drastic measures would not be enough to stave off “global warming.” “Peak warming is determined by the total amount of carbon dioxide we release into the atmosphere, not the rate we release it in any given year,” claimed Oxford University physicist Myles Allen.

    The idea of a global “one-child policy” modeled after Communist China’s has also been a hot topic, but not just among Chinese communists. In fact, it has even attracted the support of CNN boss Ted Turner, who urged world leaders to adopt the barbaric tactics at a luncheon in Cancun over the weekend. “If we’re going to be here [as a species] 5,000 years from now, we’re not going to do it with seven billion people,” said Turner, who already has five children of his own.

    World Depopulation agenda

    Did we mention how the elites have set themselves up to make billions on the scam?

    Their standing proposal: Socialism, high taxes, global one-child policy, abortion, sterilization, carbon rationing, carbon taxes, wealth transfer from the U.S. to global institutions. You know the Democrats would do all this if they could only get away with it. They haven’t given up trying.

    More Green taxes are always good, according to the Left. They are hoping that they can drive the price of oil high enough to make some alternative energy idea look rational.

    Obama’s Energy Department and EPA are in direct cahoots with the global socialist takeover agenda.

    Who is funding the geoengineering plans.

    Holdren’s plan to de-industrialize the U.S.

    Barack Obama’s science advisor John Holdren explains his plan to return the United States to nature, eliminate civilization, cooperate with global socialism, transfer our wealth to other countries.

    Once you understand their totalitarian master plan, there is no reason to engage in debating about or even thinking about whether the Left intends to “restore the economy,” “create or save” jobs, “get the economy moving again,” or do anything for the American people. It is an anti-human total takeover agenda. The plans are on paper and out in the open. The Left is going to continue to cooperate with Communist regimes and global socialist schemes, period. It’s a power grab, pure and simple, and a criminal enterprise.

    Yep, all that talk on TV about “helping people” etc. is just hot air. Now you don’t have to waste your time with them, you know who the enemy is.

    Finally, psychologists profile the “green personality type” and conclude they are unreliable, anti-social people. We already knew that. People who go green are the useful idiots of global socialism. There is plenty of information out there about the evils of environmentalism, you don’t have to be a genius to find it. The greens have no excuse. They are fanatics and dupes, avoid them, and boycott every green scheme.

    The worst thing that can happen to us has already happened, being taken over by socialism.

    This planet is old and scarred and cracked and is part of a larger solar system, hence responds to powerful physical forces. This has nothing to do with man’s activities.

    Waiting on the gnashing of teeth and humble apologies by those duped by Obama in 2008 for the damage they’ve been party to by their civic laziness…

    “people must be helped to help themselves.” Any plan or program that
    would make them “dependent upon doles and charities” is “paternalistic”
    and would not be “of any permanent value.” She included an essay (what
    she called a “program of public welfare,”) entitled “We Must Breed a Race
    of Thoroughbreds.”

    “If the upper class is able to give it’s children, grandchildren more and more
    genetic advantages, they will move away form the people who are naturally

    “after-birth abortion”

    [Rather than being “actual persons”, newborns were “potential
    persons”. They explained: “Both a fetus and a newborn certainly
    are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a ‘person’
    in the sense of ‘subject of a moral right to life’.

    “We take ‘person’ to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to
    her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived
    of this existence represents a loss to her.”

    As such they argued it was “not possible to damage a newborn by
    preventing her from developing the potentiality to become a person
    in the morally relevant sense”.]

    Exposing Planned Parenthood, Good, Saul Alinsky, Not Good
    Posted on February 18, 2011

    Last night I wrote a post about LiveAction and the Saul Alinsky book they recommended, Rules for Radicals. I have to admit, even after reading Why Live Action did right and why we all should know that by Dr. Peter Kreeft, I still object to Alinsky’s ideas and to anyone in the pro-life movement using them.

    And that is my real beef with LiveAction, not that they did undercover sting operations and lied to the sleazy corrupt minions of sleazy Planned Parenthood. It’s that they recommended Saul Alinsky to their fellow pro-life workers on their website and that their representative actually told me via email that they didn’t see anything wrong with his book or his methods. That is what bothered me then and is still what bothers me now. I think they took the book off their site, I haven’t seen it lately, but I have yet to hear any of them repudiate it. If you’ve read Rules for Radicals, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t, read it. Everything you’re seeing right now in the world–the middle east, Wisconsin, Europe–will suddenly make a whole lot of sense. Evil sense, but sense, nonetheless.

    Waste Material, Compassionate Choice and Other Lies of Our Ancient Enemy
    Posted on March 10, 2012

    [The following is a report from my participation in 40 Days for Life, Days 17 and 18.] Friday was abortion day at Planned Parenthood in Birmingham. On Friday afternoon the truck came to pick up what is (euphemistically, I suppose) called “waste material”. On the side of the truck it says “Protecting People. Reducing Risk.”

    Protecting folks and reducing risks. Uh huh.

    Ironic, isn’t it? And just a bit sickening. The most defenseless ones of all were certainly not protected and the risk they were in was neither reduced nor even acknowledged. So much for the “compassionate choice.” I’m sure you’ve heard that argument. “It’s compassionate to save a child from possible suffering.” By killing him before he even has a chance to take his first breath outside his mother’s womb? Don’t make me vomit.

    “‘The organizer’s first job is to create the issues or problems,’ and ‘organizations must be based on many issues.’ The organizer ‘must first rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; fan the latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expression. He must search out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act. . . . An organizer must stir up dissatisfaction and discontent.'”
