The left is always on the lookout for another reason to promote their extreme position on abortion---a position overwhelmingly opposed in recent polls---and they are taking heart in a newly released Congressional Budget Office report on the financial implications of H.R. 1797, the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (which would ban abortions after 20 weeks).
“H.R. 1790 would result in increased spending for Medicaid,” says CBO. “Since a portion of Medicaid is paid for by state governments, CBO estimates that state spending on the program would increase by about $170 million over the 2014-2023 period.”
In other words, according to the CBO report, the part of healthcare provided and paid for by the government (Medicaid)---something that expands greatly under Obamacare---aborting late-term babies is a cost-saving measure for government. Letting late-term babies live, according to this reasoning, is an increased cost for government.
This comes as great news for Obama. With his
healthcare reform plan wealth-redistribution plan coming apart at the seams, the cost savings mentioned in the report could go a long way in providing the funds necessary to pay for those late-term abortions, not to mention Sandra Fluke's birth-control pills.
Murdering babies via abortion, even murdering them if they survive it, has been a part of the death-culture of the far-left for quite some time. With the federal budget spinning out-of-control, don't be surprised when the pro-abortion Progressives add this CBO report to their arsenal af weapons.
Kermit Gosnell's of the world, rejoice!
