Senate Leadership released their draft of ObamaCare “Repeal” this morning. We are relieved, and grateful, to report that the effort to end taxpayer support of Planned Parenthood remains very much alive.
We are in no position yet to comment on the larger content and policy directions of this draft legislation. Yet we are encouraged that Sen. McConnell continues to support defunding Planned Parenthood. In addition, the leadership’s version of ObamaCare Repeal would prohibit the use of any federal subsidies families may receive for health care to be used for elective abortions.
There are broad pro-Life principles at stake in the national debate over health care. We have long been adamantly opposed to ObamaCare because of its fundamental threat to pro-Life values: End-of-Life issues, access and affordability, as well as abortion. Destruction of ObamaCare is a vital pro-Life objective. Congress must find a way to get this job done for America.
