GAO: Americans paying for abortion through Obamacare


Tuesday, September 16, 2014

The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Casey Mattox regarding a non-partisan Government Accountability Office report released Tuesday that demonstrates conclusively that Americans are paying for abortion through Obamacare despite promises the administration made that it would abide by a federal law prohibiting that:

“This report exposes what we’ve known all along: that Obamacare was designed to force Americans to pay for abortions. Federal law protects Americans from paying for others’ abortions, but Obamacare architects built a purposely deceptive accounting scheme into the massive law that makes people in all 50 states fund abortion. We were told that we had to pass the bill to find out what was in it. Now we know one other thing that’s in it: corporate welfare for the administration’s abortion industry cronies. Instead of deceiving the American people, the administration needs to follow federal law and deliver on the transparency we were promised.”

Alliance Defending Freedom is an alliance-building, non-profit legal organization that advocates for the right of people to freely live out their faith.
