Obama insisted to Congress that it was not true that healthcare reform caused federally funded abortion. The US Bishops welcomed the statement but pro-life groups wondered how it could be true. Obama refused to say. The House had passed the phony Capps amendment, which pays for abortion with federal funds in the public insurance option while simply declaring that they aren't federal funds, even though the abortionist sends his bill to the US Treasury and gets a check therefrom. Last week the Bishops said enough is enough: all the health plans either pay for abortion outright or do it by the phony Capps arrangement, so unless that is changed we will oppose health care reform "vigorously."
