NO UNIVERSALITY, NO DEAD BABIES, NO PUBLIC OPTION...:

The pro-choice argument against health care reform. (William Saletan, Sept. 30, 2009, Slate)

This week, the Senate finance committee is considering amendments that would bar coverage of abortions under federally subsidized health insurance. Pro-choice groups are up in arms. After all, says NARAL Pro-Choice America, "In the current insurance marketplace, private plans can choose whether to cover abortion careā€”and most do." If Congress enacts subsidies that exclude abortion, "women could lose coverage for abortion care, even if their private health-insurance plan already covers it!" The organization urges lawmakers to "vote against any plan that takes coverage for abortion away from women who already have it in their private insurance plans."


...unless they own stock in insurance companies, there's nothing in this bill for the Left.
