This may be the real reason Obama is pushing so hard for the public option

I’ve been thinking about it and a few minutes ago I read an article @ LifeNews entitled Obama Won’t Meet With Pro-Life Democrat to Discuss Abortion, Health Care. It seems that Rep. Bart Stupak is a pro-life Democrat who has been trying to get a meeting with President “Transparent” Obama for some time and has been pretty much ignored by the Oh-so-transparent One. Wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that the Representative has been working hard to push back against Obama’s push for the public option? After all, apparently he has “40 Democrats who will vote against the health care bill in the House because it funds abortions”. Hmmm…

And hasn’t the President claimed over and over again that the public option doesn’t call for taxpayer dollars for abortion? Does he mean it? Or is he indulging in one of his favorite pastimes, semantic antics?

Stupak told the Weekly Standard that “there certainly is public funding for abortion” in the House measure. He says the legislation would allow both the public health insurance plan, known as the public option, and federally subsidized private plans to pay for abortions using taxpayer funds.

Well, I’ve been pondering this and it occurs to me that Obama and his minions are pushing so hard and using all the Saul Alinsky tricks they’ve got up their sleeves in an attempt to shove this public (non)option through precisely because it does allow for public funding of abortions, funding that will come from our tax dollars, dollars that will likely go to one of his favorite organizations, Planned Parenthood. He couldn’t get FOCA through so he’s doing just what we in the Pro-Life movement expected him to do. He’s trying to sneak it in through the back door. What a surprise. Transparency and change we can believe in, my (insert your choice of choice words here)!

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!
