House OKs pro-life changes to ObamaCare

06/01/11 – The U.S. House of Representatives is working on making changes to ObamaCare, specifically when it comes to abortion funding.

In a 234-182 vote, the House recently approved the Foxx Amendment to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare), which would have set aside funds to be spent without congressional oversight. The amendment offered by Congresswoman Virginia Foxx (R-North Carolina), however, would make those discretionary funds reviewable by Congress each year.

“My amendment [says] that none of these funds could be used for elective abortions, and also that none of the funds could be used to train doctors for elective abortions,” she explains. Also under the amendment, medical schools that discriminate against healthcare providers who refuse to do abortions because of their conscience will not receive funds.

But despite the House’s approval, the prospect of passage in the Senate is slim, says the lawmaker — and not just because of political correctness. Foxx points out that 23 senators are up for re-election, so they do not want to take a position on the issue.

“That’s not the way it’s supposed to be,” she contends. “We have important business that needs to be done in this country, and the American people are not here simply to re-elect these people to a secure term so that they can sit around and contemplate their navels. We need work done by them.”
Congresswoman Foxx argues the House’s action reflects what voters say they want, especially in the area of no tax dollars for abortion.
