Dannenfelser: “Would do nothing more than prop up Obamacare, the largest expansion of abortion on-demand since Roe.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) this afternoon announced its opposition to the Alexander-Murray health care legislation that fails to address abortion funding in Obamacare.
“The legislation proposed by Sens. Alexander and Murray would do nothing more than prop up Obamacare, the largest expansion of abortion on-demand since Roe,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “This is an inadequate, short-sighted approach which fails to address the abortion funding problems created by the health care overhaul. Right now nearly 900 health care plans subsidized by taxpayer dollars cover abortion – forcing taxpayers to be complicit in the destruction of human life.
“In no way does the Alexander-Murray bill fulfill Republicans’ campaign promise to repeal and replace the ACA. That’s why Congress must use reconciliation to address all of the issues, including abortion-funding, in Obamacare.”
