In an editorial yesterday, the LA Times proclaimed:
“we believe abortion should be treated like any other medical procedure for funding purposes”
Currently Medicaid is barred from paying for abortions of unborn children except in a few instances but if the LA Times got their way, the floodgates would open to use your money to end hundreds of thousands of human lives.
The LA Times view is also outside of mainstream America. An example of this is seen when a Quinnipiac University poll found that:
Voters also oppose 72 – 23 percent using any public money in the health care overhaul to pay for abortions.
And a CNN poll with slightly different wording found that 61% supported a ban of taxpayer funded abortions with 37% supporting.
Also of note, the LA Times stated that previous to the newly reinstated ban of DC taxpayer funded abortion, “Government-funded abortions are rare in the district”. District referring to the District of Columbia. That assessment is contradicted by the DC abortion fund (which raises fund to pay for others to abort their children) which said here that 28 women in just one day would need support paying for their elective abortions now that DC can no longer using taxpayer money to pay for the killing.
