Yesterday (7/9/09) in the key Senate health committee the Senate Democratic leadership's goal of universal abortion coverage at taxpayer expense was front and center when Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) introduced an amendment that moved health care "reform" one step closer to forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions for the first time in 30 years.

It's certainly ironic that Sen. Mikulski and the committee Democrats would consider taxpayer-funded abortions to be a health care benefit since the baby gets no health care benefit from abortion. President Obama and the Democratic leadership claim they want to 'reduce' abortion, but you don't reduce abortion by funding it.
When it comes to taxpayer funding of abortion, the Democrats are out of step with the American people who according to polls consistently oppose the practice by more than a 2 to 1 margin.
