Abortion funding begins under national health care in spite of executive order praised by Ellsworth

July 14, 2010

Indianapolis, IN – LifeNews.com is reporting that the Obama administration is allowing federal taxpayer funding of abortions under the new national health care law in at least two states uncovered so far – Pennsylvania and New Mexico — in spite of an executive order that Congressman Brad Ellsworth told Hoosiers would prevent such funding.

Ellsworth was a key figure in passage of the federal health care bill by breaking from previous promises to oppose any health plan that provided federal abortion funding. Ellsworth’s defection led to the unraveling of the Stupak coalition and ended the hopes of defeating the bill.

In a press advisory following his vote for the health care bill, which National Right to Life called the largest expansion of abortion since 1973, Ellsworth touted an executive order signed by President Obama as proof that the bill would not fund abortions, stating,”Today’s executive order puts the force of the White House behind the pro-life principles in the bill and restates existing law that not one dollar of taxpayer money will be used to fund abortions.”

“Brad Ellsworth either purposefully tried to deceive Hoosiers into thinking the Obama executive order was legitimate, or he was naive enough to trust the White House and the abortion groups pushing for the bill from day one,” states Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter. “The revelations of abortion funding under the plan underscores his betrayal of the pro-life movement and the illegitimacy of the executive order signed by the President.”
