Obama's New HC Plan Keeps Abortion Funding

Ad Feedback

President Barack Obama is trying to get his healthcare agenda off life support. He released his new healthcare proposal on Monday.

However, some of the changes could doom the proposal among House Democrats. That's because the plan is closer to the Senate version, and does not include the House bill's restrictions on taxpayer funding for abortion.

Pro-life Democrats warn that their final decision hinges on this issue.

"I won't promise my vote on the final bill until I have a chance to read it, look at it and make sure we're not doing anything to jeopardize the sanctity of life," Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., said back in September.

Meanwhile, Dr. David Stevens, the head of the Christian Medical Association, says Obama's plan does not provide adequate protections for doctors and nurses who oppose abortion on ethical and religious grounds.

Stevens says a recent survey of faith-based medical professionals shows 95 percent would quit rather than violate their conscience.
