Once again Pelosi's words about ObamaCare, "We have to pass the bill to know what is in the bill," are coming back to haunt us. & once again we are seeing that it isn't about health, but promoting the "culture of death".
A recent news report by Michelle Andrews in the Washington Post reveals a dirty little secret about ObamaCare. Yes, as has been touted, it makes sure that parents health insurance covers their children up to age 26, with one huge exception, pregnancy
. You heard correctly, ObamaCare regulations mandate all insurance plans cover birth control pills & abortion causing drugs, but it doesn't mandate that they cover the pregnancy of a daughter under the age of 26 who stays on the plan & gets pregnant.
How can this be? According to the article
"Group health plans with 15 or more workers are required to provide maternity benefits for employees and their spouses under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978. But other dependents of employees aren’t covered by the law, so companies don’t have to provide maternity coverage for them
." & the new HHS mandates do not close this loophole.
According to one estimate by Dan Priga, who heads the performance audit group for Mercer, a human resources consulting company, "roughly 70 percent of companies that pay their employees’ health-care claims directly choose not to provide dependent maternity benefits." & of those 70% most might not even be eligible for Medicaid if the household income is too high.
So, ObamaCare is putting up obstacles for teens & young women to get coverage if they get pregnant. But it is doing everything it can to push abortion
. & on the taxpayers dime.
In other words, we now have a system that does even more to ensure these women see abortion as the only possible choice for them to make. Under ObamCare, health care is no longer about saving lives, but ending as many as possible, even before they are born.
As I have said before, ObamaCare has been set up as a payback to the abortion, & this latest just proves it. After all, if this was really about providing real health care, then why isn't pregnancy coverage required, but covering birth control pills, with no co-pay, is?
The only answer is to push more women into having abortions. Which means more money going into the coffers of Planned Parenthood & the rest of the abortion industry.
Obama's abortion supporters like to say that it is those who are Pro-life that are waging a war on women
. When the truth is something else, it is Obama & the abortion industry who are waging the real war. If this was truly about women, not pushing more abortions, then health care coverage for all pregnancies would be required, just as it is for birth control.
