So the idea a woman should be legally allowed to kill her own child in order for it to be as safe as possible for her to kill her own child is laughable and idiotic.
    And your arguement would go over as well as a case of vodka at a tea-totallers convention... Believe me, these pro-abortion advocates are mean, nasty, twisted, and filthy, I know..

    I agree that federal funds should be available to pay for abortions for women covered by federal health programs like Medicaid and under some constrained circumstances such as rape, incest and health of the mother, all of which the Hyde amendment prohibits today. That law punishes the victim.

    And that the most cost effective and health-oriented approach in this area is contraceptive education and distribution. Abortion while it is a safe procedure when conducted in clean environments by trained professionals, it is in most cases an elective procedure which carries some small risk that can and should be avoided entirely.

    This new law goes further than the Hyde amendment by effectively imposing a tax penalty for those people who have private health insurance policies covering abortion; the net result will be that no policies will cover those costs. It's a devious, round-about way to make abortion even more costly for those compelled to obtain one.

    Cost for women with means, will be of no significant concern, but, for women with limited or no significant means, this law will have enormous impact on them and their families. It's unfair and wrong.

    The federal government does all sorts of things we disagree with; we don't get to opt out paying for them just because we disagree.

    A distinct possibility. However, in my defence I'm hardly a standout on this forum in this respect.
