    If taxpayers have to pay for your abortion, doesn't that make your abortion taxpayer business? :eusa_whistle:

    Democratic Platform Endorses Taxpayer-Funded Abortions
    And the Democratic party doesn't want to make abortions "rare."
    1:32 AM, SEP 4, 2012 • BY JOHN MCCORMACK

    The 2012 Democratic party will officially adopt an extreme position on the issue of abortion on Tuesday. According to a copy of the party platform, which was released online just before midnight on Monday, "The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay."

    hat last part--"regardless of ability to pay"--is an endorsement of taxpayer-funded abortions, a policy that President Obama has personally endorsed. Obama wants Medicaid to pay directly for elective abortions, and Obamacare will allow beneficiaries to use federal subsidies to purchase health care plans that cover elective abortions. According to a 2009 Quinnipiac poll, 72 percent of voters oppose public funding of abortion and 23 percent support it.

    The Dems think tax payers should pay for everything everyone wants. I'm sure they'd be happy if they could confiscate every penny that every citizen has and then dole it out in a way they think is fair.

    To all the whiners out there:
    Abortion is legal. Go get one. If you don't have insurance, then start making payments when you get the bill. The doctor will accept your little payments until the bill is paid off. Really, it's that easy. It's called paying for what you want. It's your choice, which means it is also your responsibility, not anyone else's.

    Agreed. If you want an abortion it's your business. If I have to pay for it, then it becomes my business.

    Just because they "endorse" it doesn't mean it's happening. The GOP platform is full of all kinds of crazy shit - that sane people hope will never become law.
