An Associated Press story reads in part: ‘An obscure part of the law allows states to restrict abortion coverage by private plans operating in new insurance markets. Capitalizing on that language, abortion foes have succeeded in passing bans that, in some cases, go beyond federal statutes…..”We don’t consider elective abortion to be health care, so we don’t think it’s a bad thing for fewer private insurance companies to cover it,” said Mary Harned, attorney for Americans United for Life, a national organization that wrote a model law for the states.’
The Health Care Freedom Act is considered in states as either a bill or a state constitutional amendment – effectively prohibiting the enactment of any new government-run healthcare programs within the state.
At least 29 states are enacting such a law or a close facsimile of. As well, there 20 states on board with the newly adopted ultrasound law(s) with many more states to follow. States are also considering legislation of ‘personhood’ which will give the unborn child ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness’ instead of impending death. The Tenth Amendment provides that ‘The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.’
It’s about time our votes count.
With all the recent brouhaha regarding the new Arizona immigration law, we see how a single state can pick up the ball and run with getting done what needs to be done, and not in ‘DC time’….”We in Arizona have been more than patient waiting for Washington to act,” Gov. Jan Brewer said after signing the law. “But decades of inaction and misguided policy have created a dangerous and unacceptable situation.”
One voter at a time…one state at a time.
We are trying to ‘form a more perfect union’, not secede from it. However, in order to keep utter chaos from erupting from what seems to be a socialistic plan from the progressive left, we as Americans have to take a moment and study our Constitution and make a concerted effort to keep our country and our states FREE as it was intended by our founding fathers.
We can change the face of abortion ‘one baby at a time, one mom at a time, one heart at a time’
