Abortion Giant Paid to Promote ObamaCare

By Matthew Clark1398283011000

Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, is being paid (by your tax dollars) to enroll people in ObamaCare.

California’s ObamaCare exchange is paying Certified Enrolment Counselors, including 38 Planned Parenthood affiliates, $58 per person for enrolling people on the state exchange.  A “successful application” brings $58 per individual enrolled with a bonus of another $58 for enrolling a dependant.  A “successful annual renewal” for these individuals will bring in another $25 per person.

That’s no small sum.  The abortion industry has a knack for finding ways to squeeze taxpayer dollars out of the American public.  Planned Parenthood receives nearly half of its annual billion-dollar budget courtesy of the taxpayer.

Now taxpayers are paying them to be ObamaCare telemarketers.  Many of those ObamaCare plans in turn cover abortion and of course contraception and abortion pills.  So with Planned Parenthood committing 327,166 abortions and dispensing over 1.5 million “emergency contraception kits,” i.e. abortion pills, on a yearly basis, they already have plenty of incentive to sign people up for the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.  Yet, now the taxpayer is being forced to pay Planned Parenthood to sign up future customers.

Of course this isn’t the only windfall for the abortion industry.  ObamaCare is replete with kickbacks, subsidies, and programs that benefit big abortion.

California isn’t the only government entity partnering with the abortion industry to promote ObamaCare.  Similarly, the federal government’s “Champions for Coverage” program operated through CMS is littered with abortion providers and advocacy groups.  Though not paying them in the same way as California, the federal government has partnered with numerous Planned Parenthood affiliates, NARAL, and various “reproductive health” organizations (code for abortion) to promote pro-abortion ObamaCare throughout America.

As unbelievable as it is, it’s hardly surprising.  The abortion industry and the Obama Administration have been in cahoots from the beginning.  The individual mandate, the employer mandate followed by the HHS abortion-pill mandate, “School-based Health Centers,” expansion of Medicaid, federal subsidies, the abortion surcharge on insurance, and on and on make ObamaCare a smorgasbord of opportunity for big abortion.

Isn’t it time we stop subsidizing an industry that makes its living perpetuating death?
