Read the Bill: Senate Bill Pays for Abortions at Community Health Centers
Here are two great articles that help you cut through all the spin flying around the health care bill that just passed. the first a very informative piece by John McCormack of the weekly standard is entitled,” read the bill.” the second is a FAQ over at first things (HT: Justin Taylor). In regard to the executive order all sides seem to be of the same mind.
The executive order promised by President Obama was issued for political effect. It changes nothing. It does not correct any of the serious pro-abortion provisions in the bill. The president cannot amend a bill by issuing an order, and the federal courts will enforce what the law says.
“we are grateful that [the executive order] does not include the Stupak abortion ban.”
