77% of anti-abortion leaders are men. 100% of them will never get pregnant!
One of the latest snags with getting our government health care approved is this issue of abortion. Many fear the bill will not be signed off on this round because the language in regards to abortion is so vague. Anti-abortionists feel that a government health care plan should not involve a procedure such as abortion.
The process of abortion can range from a $50.00 pill up to a $500.00 procedure. In my opinion, I would rather my tax dollars be spent in the sum of $50.00-$500.00 vs. the cost of a pregnancy, labor, birth, etc. It is not that I preach “Hey, get abortions” but I do feel it is that persons right to choose what is best for their life. I think that if they make the choice to get an abortion that insurance should cover it. Granted, stipulations may be necessary to prevent some people from becoming professional abortionists. However, most people who go through an experience such as an abortion, likely do not repeat the experience. Once is usually enough.
What I want to know is: How is it any different from other health issues? Yes pregnancy is preventable, but so are many other health issues that we Americans bring upon ourselves due to our habits and lifestyles. I don’t think that covering the cost of abortion on federal dollars should be an issue. What do you think?

No, I don’t think it should be covered. I don’t support abortion at all, and I would rather have my tax dollars go to healthcare and labor that results in a baby being placed for adoption. I don’t think abortions need to be any easier to get, and I think the monetary issue might make some women think twice before having it done.
Thanks for the input Tiffany. I can see your side too. I just dont think it is our place to tell a person there should be a child of theirs in this world if that is not what they want. The child is who suffers the most, the child has to live the life of not feeling loved no matter where they live.
Angela–at least the child would be alive and have a chance to make choices for themselves down the road. The feeling of not being loved is not an automatic side affect of being adopted. Counceling is an option if needed–but only if they are alive…never heard of counceling bringing back an aborted child, but I’ve heard of many a remorseful woman regretting their abortion.
It would be, but what would the woman do to try and get rid of the baby? Being forced to carry against their will? That part doesnt seem right to me. Its their conscience, ya know?
