Depending on where you live, and what insurance policy you have, you may already be paying for abortions either through taxes or insurance premiums. Most private insurers cover at least some abortion services to protect the health of the mother. All states pay for at least some abortion services under Medicaid (see Hyde Amendment). Also note that the current proposed plan does not use federal funds to cover abortion services. Plans that provide abortion coverage will be required to pay for the services using beneficiary premiums.
Finally, if you object to your tax dollars being used to pay for murder, you should move to a state (or country) that does not practice capital punishment. Obviously abortion and execution are not the same thing, but many religions condemn both practices as being immoral and unjustifiable.[/quote]
First, NO, none of my private insurance dollars go to fund abortion. That’s the beauty of private insurance, everyone pays for themselves. That is kinda the whole point of it, to bad you missed it.
If you can’t see the difference between capital punishment and abortion, there is no hop for you.
In addition, lets look at some numbers, shall we? Will go with a state like Texas, just for your statistical benefit. In 2008 There were 18 executions of horrible despicable people in texas.
The same state (texas) in 2005 had over 77,000 abortions preformed on entirely innocent humans who’d never done a bad thing to anyone. Even if, in the end, only a couple of percent are government funded, you get the idea of the magnitude of difference we are talking about here. They are entirely morally and sizably incomparable.
Even in a state like texas there are approximately 4300 abortions to every execution.
