In less than two weeks, Congress will come back from August recess and health care reform will return to center stage. As we have mentioned in recent weeks, the current government-mandated health care reform plan will be the greatest expansion of abortion rights and abortion funding since Roe v. Wade.
But it is not just the preborn who will be impacted. The elderly, the infirm ... every family facing difficult end-of-life decisions ... may soon come up against a government-mandated health care system that is the single greatest legislative threat to our families that we have seen.
Government-mandated health care gives government officials unprecedented influence over health care decisions that have always been the responsibility of the family. And it will include mandated abortion coverage through the public plan and through private insurance premiums.
