    Americans are going to have universal health care (Medicare for all) provided by the government. It's going to happen next year. Get used to it.

    Living in Canada we have had Medicare for over 40 years and it works quite well. Our Medicare system pays for ABORTION which is deemed as a medical procedure not a crime. Amercan's new medicare bill too will cover abortion, after all 85 % of private insurance plans pay for it and President Obama has said Mediacre will be equal to private insurance.

    How do you feel about a woman being able to have an abortion (medical procedure not a crime) which will be paid for by tax dollars - your tax dollars? I'd like to read your thoughts on this subject and please cast your vote in my poll.


    Thank you,

    From a purely mechanical point of view, it is a medical proceedure, and not one that is banned by federal law.
    So that is that question answered. However I get the feeling that that isn't quite the answer you were looking for.

    If you are asking about the moral, ethical, or religious view of the taxpayer paying for abortions? - Well that is the weakest arguement of all for preventing this proceedure being performed.
    Think about it, Insulin (non synthetic) is harvested from pigs. That'll piss off the Muslim tax payers. How about every blood transfusion? - That'll piss off the Jehova's Witnesses tax payers. What about serving meat to the patients? - Vegan tax payers will object to that.

    That's why when setting up things like this you rely on medical advice, not moral advice.

    It's early yet but the vote is 100% in favour of the procedure being paid for by Medicare. Bravo my enlightened friends.

    Not surprising though one person responded with atypical Conservative, stone-age mental capacity.

    Zoom-boing you should consider moving back to the stone-age society of Afghanistan - you'll most certainly feel right at home !

    When was the last time a man needed to have sex to survive?
    Men don't need viagra or a penis pump.

    medicare not paying for abortion would be a big mistake, a girl who cannot afford an abortion is most likely still going to have one anyways but probably not in a safe way. If she does have the baby, what do you think the chances of her dumping that child somewhere is?

    my tax dollars are used for all sorts of legal things that i find morally and ethically wrong.....

    if you don't like it ...move....or vote or act to change it....

    as for abortion....i really don't care if a woman wants to kill her human fetus .....
