FAQ on Abortion and Health Care

Does the just passed health care bill cover abortions? Did the executive order solve the problem? Follow this link for a helpful FAQ from Matthew Anderson on what just happened.

Here are the questions he answers:
  • Did the Senate health care bill, which was the bill under consideration, cover abortions initially?
  • But isn’t this bill covered by the Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal funding for abortions?
  • So Stupak solved this with the Executive Order, right?
  • Why did Stupak cave, then?
  • Did Stupak get anything for it?
  • And pro-lifers?
  • Can we be done talking about this now?
