Obama - Fund abortion or we cut off low-income healthcare

In the tradition of open-mindedness, civility and caring for their citizens that characterizes other leftist leaders like Mao and Lenin, Obama is letting Indiana know what he thinks about initiatives to reduce the number of abortions in that state.

"A looming showdown over Indiana's new law that cuts funding for the Planned Parenthood organization may test how far Republican-led states are willing to go in pressing their tough new anti-abortion agendas. The stakes are high. The future of health care for more than 1 million poor and elderly Indiana residents hangs in the balance.

Indiana became the first state this year to cut off all government funds to Planned Parenthood, fulfilling conservatives' goal of financially weakening organizations that provide abortions. Other conservative states have considered such action in recent years but backed away under the threat of loss of all federal money for their Medicaid programs.

The willingness of Indiana, led by a Republican governor and GOP-controlled Legislature, to challenge the federal government and risk a huge financial penalty could take the issue into uncharted legal and political territory. Conservative leaders in other states will be watching the confrontation as they plan their own action on abortion and other social issues.

"I think this is an instance in which a state is really trying to overturn national policy and in so doing is likely to forego federal funding," said Christopher Arterton, professor of political management at George Washington University and an expert on federal-state issues."

Of course, we can't encourage responsible behavior. It's completely out of the question and the public is incapable of it. As always with the left, the violent option is first and foremost. The option that punishes the only completely innocent party in an unplanned pregnancy is the one who has to pay with their life. Way to go Chairman Zero. What else could we expect from someone who as a state senator condoned infanticide?

I've commented here before in support of Australia's Medicare system, which is funded by a levy on every Australian taxpayer. The downside is that my taxes are being used to fund abortions.
