The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed a new pro-life rule requiring stricter compliance with federal law that prohibits taxpayer funding for abortion. This is something we’ve been advocating for years.
ObamaCare has expanded taxpayer funding for abortion, and an abortion surcharge buried in ObamaCare could be forcing millions of Americans to unknowingly pay for abortions.
Under current regulations, insurance companies are failing to separately identify abortion coverage surcharges for customers. As a result, many U.S. taxpayers are unknowingly paying for abortion coverage. Therefore, while customers – like you, who are legally required to obtain a minimum level of insurance coverage – are complying with the law, current regulations allow insurance companies to ignore it.
HHS’s proposed rule would fix this problem by providing greater oversight and requiring transparency to promote compliance with already established federal law. This oversight and transparency will prevent federal funds from being used in violation of federal law to pay for abortion services. Further, it will protect the rights of conscience of U.S. taxpayers by preventing their funds from being unknowingly used to pay for abortion services.

It should shock the conscience of everyone in America. It’s one of the most horrific stories in generations, and it’s hardly being covered by the mainstream media. It could be the plot of a chilling horror movie, but it’s 100% true. An Indiana abortionist (and resident of Illinois) was secretly...
Under the guise of “modernising,” New Zealand is considering adopting a proposed Abortion Legislation Bill . Abortion in New Zealand is currently allowed only in limited situations where the mother’s life or health is in danger, in cases of serious fetal abnormalities, or if the pregnancy is a...
Just when you think you’ve heard it all, you say to yourself, could that have actually been said? It’s really sick when you think about it. Today on the show we discussed Sen. Bernie Sanders saying that if we increase abortions we’re going to save the planet. Think about that for a moment. He...
Sidewalk counselors share the good news of the sanctity of human life where that message needs to be heard the most: right outside the doors of abortion facilities. These counselors, who suffer the insults of clinic “escorts” and all types of weather, are unspoken heroes of the pro-life movement.
