    WASHINGTON (BP) -- Abortion continued to embroil President Obama's signature health care law as Americans began researching their options in the exchange insurance plans called for by the measure.

    The exchanges, or marketplaces, opened Oct. 1 to enroll people who have no health insurance or pay for it themselves. Pro-life advocates inside and outside Congress greeted the latest step to implement the controversial 2010 Affordable Care Act with concerns about policies that apparently will increase the number of taxpayer-funded abortions.

    Pro-lifers charged:

    -- The Obama administration has issued a final rule that would cover abortions for members of Congress and their staffs, thereby violating a longstanding federal law.

    -- The law, under the guidance of the administration, could enable about 5.5 million girls and women to gain abortion coverage, resulting in what possibly could be more than 100,000 additional, publicly subsidized abortions per year.

    The health care law has faced pro-life opposition throughout its contentious existence. Pro-life organizations, including the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, opposed the legislation while it was under congressional consideration, decrying its government subsidies for abortion.

    Glad to notice they recognize they're already being paid for under Medicaid, and this would just expand the coverage.

    I don't think a lot of people realize their tax money funds them under the Medicaid program, or maybe they just don't complain on here. I've never heard it brought up in the threads that come up on the topic of abortion and nobody ever commented when I mentioned it, and that has surprised me.

    Maybe because I brought it up under the question of how it's okay to obey the government and pay taxes if it's used for abortion if abortion is murder.

    Question is still out there if anyone wants to answer it...

    It fits ObamaCare too. They made it mandatory, is it wrong to disobey? One really can't use the abortion argument to say yes, if they still pay taxes, right?

    It's not OK Gina and ultimately my feeling is as believers we will have to answer to the Lord even though we were forced under a kind of coercion and duress.

    In actuality it has been going on since 1973 when the US Supreme Court said OK to the bloodshed of the innocent.

    After all our taxes pay their salary.

    Pray and get involved with a pro-life movement, what else can we do other than renounce our citizenship (and go where?).

    Personally I love my country, but my government has become morally bankrupt.

    That's not true in every state. Missouri and Kansas, for example, both ban abortions as part of Medicaid coverage. Each state administers its own Medicaid program, and I'm sure there are states that allow it. Most, however, do not.

    That's because those who make this a GOP bread and butter issue don't dare start talking about taking away people's Medicare for ANY reason.

    And you're right.. The average person on here and elsewhere does not even realize that their tax dollars are being used to fund abortions. wonder if the same folks take issue with their tax dollars funding the murderous activities of the CIA,FBI, NSA or any of those other acronym organizations .

    I wonder why it seems that the GOP's care for the born never seems to rise to the level of their supposed care for the unborn?

    We pay the taxes. We can't control what they do with the taxes once we have paid them. It's kinda like us paying taxes to fund the military who sells weapons to countries who become our enemies.

    It's the insurance that's mandatory. You either have to have it through an employee or through the exchanges.

    As there is nothing unBiblical about demanding someone have health insurance, it would be wrong for us to disobey the law to have it.


    Again, our taxes pay for all sorts of unGodly stuff that we have no control over. If we're gonna complain about abortion, we need to complain about the other stuff too.

    We've sold and given weapons, made and paid for with our tax dollars, to enemies who have killed tens of thousands for years.
