US citizens to be forced to personally pay for surgical abortion under USA Obamacare "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act"

US citizens to be forced to personally pay for surgical abortion under USA Obamacare "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act"
Surgical abortion (in the case of citizens), added to contraception, chemical abortion, sterilization mandatory insurance already would be forced to cover.

The Catholic Bishops, and others, have raised concern, over the new implementation, of regulations within Obamacare, which will now force Americans buying mandatory Health Insurance, to directly fund abortion with a 1$ or above mandatory surcharge for the surgical practice. While insurers may choose to offer a plan excluding abortion, if they include it, for which they will be subsidized, they will get federal tax subsidies towards funding abortions, they need not inform potential clients beforehand, and may not inform them of how much of the surcharge goes towards abortion. Those buying insurance, also may not opt out of funding abortions, as the regulations forbid insurers from permitting this based on any grounds including religion, or conscientious objection. They will be forced to stick with abortion funding insurance, only informed of it, in a benefits list in small print, given to those who buy insurance. This extends to the majority, who will get insurance through their employer, or based on which doctors networks are covered by an insurer, who will have no option in American law, but to fund abortion directly through the 1$ or above surcharge.

This latest move is in addition to regulations forcing employees (through their employers plans), to fund sterlization, abortion causing drugs such as the morning after pill, and ordinary contraception. Barack Obama, has also announces, through the White House's mechanisms, that Universities will now also be forced to add students into Obamacare, meaning that their abortions will be funded by ordinary Americans, and other students.


While the American White House, in Washington DC, Washington State, has already claimed that funding of measures to prevent children being born, saves costs, KPMG has warned of catastrophic consequences to the USA economy and state due to aging population, a euphemism for low birth rates, if its birth rate does not increase, or at least stop decreasing.

Abortion now mandatory part of plans, Insurance buyers, not to be told plans cover it until actually in the plan and made to pay 1$ up surcharge, US government to pay insurance providers to cover abortions also.

Obama attempts to deceive American Public with non-negotiated not compromise: attacks Catholics for objecting


(SACNS Americas NewsScripturelink Catholic Voters' Guide and PoliticsSocial Justice South Africa)

Marc Aupiais  -  12:42  -  Public
Obama attempts to deceive American Public with non-negotiated not compromise
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops claim that the mandate that insurance companies provide contraception, abortion pills, sterilization free of charge to the Catholic Church and its institutions, is a deception. They say they will still indirectly pay for the services, and that the conscience opt out must be both for buyers and for sellers of insurance, as pregnancy they say is not a disease. Obama supporters such as the Catholic Health Association's leaders who some claim to have negotiated the change, along with some democrats have seemingly withdrawn support for a bill allowing opting out of providing money for preventing life being born.

"The bishops had initially called the compromise “a first step in the right direction.” But late Friday they released a second statement saying that the plan raised “a grave moral concern.” Mr. Doerflinger said the reason was that they did not see the rule itself until 7 p.m.; the administration official said, however, that the new rule had not been written yet because the details had not been hashed out, and that the bishops must have read the old rule.

The bishops also were dismayed that the administration did not consult them in crafting the compromise, presenting it to them as a fait accompli.

Mr. Doerflinger said, “We were not part of the negotiation and we were told there wasn’t one by the White House.”

The bishops used the turn of events to renew their objections to the broad requirement that was part of the sweeping health care overhaul passed in 2010 that any employer who has a moral or religious objection — even a small business owner — must offer birth control in their insurance coverage because it is preventive care.

“All the other mandated ‘preventive services’ prevent disease, and pregnancy is not a disease,” the bishops said.

4 of the 5 major USA News Services promote abortion, oppose Catholics- Report claims
ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN give a lot of coverage to a cancer charity no longer funding some abortionists, but no coverage to a major election year issue of Obama attacking institutions of Catholic faith!- claims media institute

Yahoo News "Media Research Center blasts networks for not covering Obama’s ‘attack on religious freedom’" By Dylan Stableford Tue, Feb 7, 2012:

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/cutline/media-research-center-blasts-networks-not-covering-obama-150745021.html

""The double standard is clear for all to see," Bozell wrote. "You are ignoring the attack on the freedom of religion by the Obama administration, but coming to the aid of [abortionists and Obama allies] Planned Parenthood because you agree with them."

[...]

• ABC and NBC waited 16 days to cover the anti-Catholic ruling, finally citing the new rule on "This Week" and "Meet the Press" on February 5.
• CBS waited 10 days to mention it on "This Morning" and provided no subsequent coverage.
• CNN briefly mentioned the rule when it was announced on January 20th, then didn't bother to mention it again for 10 days.


Yet, Bozell wrote, "in reaction to a decision that would affect vastly fewer potential patients, the networks pounced on the Susan G. Komen Foundation's decision to cease a measly $480,000 in a grant to Planned Parenthood, the country's largest abortion provider." Timothy Dolan, president of the Catholic Conference of Bishops, was among several church leaders copied on the letter by Bozell.

Representatives for ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN did not immediately respond to requests from Yahoo News seeking comment."

The Exception is not the rule, nor is it unexpected from the class of people who supported Obama despite his abortion agenda, links to abortionists!

I'm sure the Cardinal Newsman Society knows. Fact is many of the supporters of Obama are "Catholic". I have never heard of De Paul University. I have heard of Notre Dame. Many of these universities also fund and support abortion providers Planned Parenthood. It doesn't actually hurt the bishops' argument.

The largest Catholic university in the nation has admitted to providing contraception coverage as part of its health care benefit package, further undermining the GOP’s claims that Obama’s regulation ...

Michael Bloomberg (New York), head of Bonanza Oil (Dallas), Credo, others pledge money for abortionists, as Komen calls fowl over Planned Parenthood campaign against them




Marc Aupiais  -  17:54  -  Public
Michael Bloomberg (New York), head of Bonanza Oil (Dallas), Credo, others pledge money for abortionists, as Komen calls fowl over Planned Parenthood campaign against them
Due to a Federal investigation of whether or not Planned Parenthood illegally misused funding for other processes to perform abortions, Komen withdrew funding under existing rules about federal investigations. The move prompted an active campaign by Abortionists and their friends to harm Komen. Similar to one against AT&T in 1991. Now, The Amy and Lee Fikes' Foundation of Bonanza Oil Co. in Dallas, pledged $250,000, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he would match the next $250,000 and Credo, a mobile-phone company, promised $200,000 to fund Abortion firm Planned Parenthood.

"Planned Parenthood Federation of American received $400,000 from 6,000 donors as of Feb. 1. More pledges were made yesterday though the group didn't have an updated amount, said Shawn Rhea, an organization spokeswoman. Three large donors had surfaced: The Amy and Lee Fikes' Foundation, run by the head of closely held Bonanza Oil Co. in Dallas, pledged $250,000; New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he would match the next $250,000; and Credo, a mobile-phone company, promised $200,000.

The Komen foundation's decision not to continue grants for 16 of 19 local Planned Parenthood affiliates sparked questions about its motives after Planned Parenthood said the action was prompted by pressure from anti-abortion forces. Critics and supporters filled the Internet with comment and petitions.

"This is a difficult issue made more difficult by the gross mischaracterization" of Komen's intent, Elizabeth Thompson, the Dallas-based group's president, said yesterday in a conference call with reporters.

Komen initiated a review of grant criteria and included a rule denying money to any organization under federal, state or local investigation, Chief Executive Officer Nancy Brinker said during the call.


House Inquiry


The foundation cited as a reason for withdrawing funding a probe by Representative Cliff Stearns, a Florida Republican and chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, into whether New York-based Planned Parenthood is illegally using government money for abortions.

No other group has been told it won't be receiving grants under the new criteria, though some "probably do" provide abortions, Brinker said. "We ask a lot of questions" of grantees, "but that's not one of them."

Komen, which provides $93 million in grants to local communities for breast-cancer education, screening and treatment, is known for the pink ribbons it first distributed to breast-cancer survivors and participants of the Komen New York City Race for the Cure in 1991, according to its website. The foundation, among the largest breast-cancer advocacy groups in the U.S., also funds research on the disease. Brinker founded the group in 1982 after her sister, Susan G. Komen, died of breast cancer.

"The essence of the organization" has been obscured by the Planned Parenthood dispute, Brinker said on the call. "-San Francisco Chronicle (SF Gate) 'Komen Says Criticism Unfounded as Planned Parenthood Gains Funds' Elizabeth Lopatto and Anna Edney, Bloomberg News on Monday, February 6, 2012
