dont make me kill you.jpegI’ve written vaguely before about amendments to healthcare bills presented by pro-lifers – and shot down by pro-aborts – that would codify promises the other side makes, such as “Abortion isn’t in healthcare.” Oh yeah, then why stop the amendments insuring that?
So I thought you’d be interested in specific amendments to the Baucus healthcare plan that were presented today as the Senate Finance Committee, chaired by Baucus, began considering his healthcare plan….

  • Hatch #10 restores funding for abstinence education.
  • Hatch #12 prohibits funding for assisted suicide and offers conscience protection to those who refuse to participate in assisted suicide.
  • Hatch #13 mirrors the Hyde-Weldon conscience protections with regard to abortion.
  • Hatch #14 prohibits funding abortion or plans that cover abortion. Also clarifies that it does not prohibit insurance providers from offering abortion coverage separate from the subsidized plan.
  • abortion is not healthcare 7.jpg

  • Enzi #12 strikes Baucus abortion language and adds language prohibiting any federal government entity from requiring abortion coverage.
  • Enzi #13 strikes Baucus abortion language and adds language prohibiting any federal funding for abortion or plans that cover abortion and allows individuals to purchase separate supplemental abortion coverage with non-federal funds.
  • Enzi #14 strikes Baucus abortion language and adds language prevent overturning of state abortion laws.
  • Enzi #15 strikes Baucus abortion language and adds language prohibiting state and local governments, health care providers and health plans that receive federal financial assistance from discriminating against entities on the basis of their refusal to perform and participate in specific surgical or medical procedures or provide certain pharmaceuticals.
  • These senators should be commended for their pro-life efforts.
    And now, if you read a pro-abort online saying there is no abortion in healthcare, you can add a comment saying the other side should have no problem, then, approving Hatch #14, Enzi #12, and Enzi #13 in the Baucus healthcare plan. Same goes if they say there is no assisted suicide in healthcare, or that the rights of healthcare entities are protected.
