People have a right to control what happens to their bodies, especially in the case of such an intense and potentially dangerous thing as giving birth. I believe that everyone deserves to be able to get the medical procedures they need and so I support tax money being used for abortions
A bill proposed by Rep. Chris Smith. Prohibits the expenditure of funds authorized or appropriated by federal law or funds in any trust fund to which funds are authorized or appropriated by federal law (federal funds) for any abortion. Currently, federal funds cannot be used for abortion services, except in cases involving rape, incest, or life endangerment. More: beta.congress.gov.
I support your right to do whatever you want with your body. Both men and women. I just don't want to pay for it.
I'd support Federal Funds for abortion involving rape, with the proviso that if and when the perpetrator was caught and convicted, part of the sentence would be financial restitution for the cost of the abortion (and by cost, I mean physical, mental and financial). In other words, a hefty fine paid to the victim, and reimbursement to the state (or Feds) for any abortion and medical costs paid.
Is it healthcare, or in the field of healthcare?
Then the government really needs to leave it alone especially in light of the recent affordable care act that's been made law.
If the government is paying for healthcare for citizens, and this items falls under "healthcare", then this item, much to the chagrin of the elitist republican party, should be included.
