As Tony Perkins, the FRC president, told LifeNews.com: “The final health care bill passed into law last March contains provisions to fund abortion and to ration health care. Additionally, the law creates a huge unfunded mandate on both businesses and states, guaranteeing closed businesses, lost jobs and pushes states closer to fiscal disaster that will inevitably lead to more bailouts from the federal government — all to pay for the monstrosity that is Obamacare.”
“Passage of H.R. 2 is the first step in protecting taxpayers from being forced to fund abortions and being under the thumb of a federal bureaucracy for their health care needs,” he said.
The House of Representatives took its first step last week in repealing the abortion-funding ObamaCare bill that pro-life groups strongly oppose.
