Stabenow Offended By Attempt To Further Prohibit Use Of Taxpayer Money For Abortion

Carrie Budoff Brown is reporting over at Politico that Senator Orrin Hatch’s (R-UT) amendment to prohibit tax dollars from being used to pay for abortion in the health care overhaul died in committee in a 10-13 vote.

“Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) Sought Wednesday To Tighten Language In The Bill Prohibiting Federal Funds From Being Used On Abortions, But The Amendment Failed 10-13.”  (Carrie Budoff Brown, “Abortion Amendment Fails,” Politico, 9/30/09)

Stabenow: “I find it offensive that in here any woman, any family purchasing through the exchange, if they did not receive any tax credit would be prohibited from having the full range of health care options they need.”  (Carrie Budoff Brown, “Abortion Amendment Fails,” Politico, 9/30/09)

Hatch Retorted That Americans Are Offended By Subsidizing The Abortion Industry. “Hatch said he did not mean to offend, but there were people who are offended by taxpayers subsidizing abortion.”  (Carrie Budoff Brown, “Abortion Amendment Fails,” Politico, 9/30/09)
