Abortion Under Attack In Florida's Legislature
Last week, the Senate approved a bill that would bar private insurers from covering abortions, even partially, with any government money. (Supporters of this measure don't seem to mind that their tax dollars contributed to the 2,700 civilians killed in Afghanistan last year. I'm just sayin.) And yesterday, House members advanced a bill that would further restrict a minor's ability to get an abortion.
The best interest standard does not include financial best interest or financial considerations or potential impact on the minor or the minor's family if the minor does not terminate the pregnancy.
Well, since abortion opponents don't mind financially unfit people having babies, it's worth noting that Florida has the nation's second highest rate of uninsured children and is the third worst state overall, in terms of child health care, according to a recent report from the Commonwealth Foundation.
So, unless Florida's abortion opponents advocate for universal child health care - you know, that evil Obamacare - they're sending kids into a dismal, deadly system.
