    Mother furious after in-school clinic sets up teen's abortion | KOMO News - Breaking News, Sports, Traffic and Weather - Seattle, Washington | Local & Regional

    Jill says her daughter, a pro-life advocate, was given a pass, put in a taxi and sent off to have an abortion during school hours all without her family knowing.

    "We had no idea this was being facilitated on campus," said Jill. "They just told her that if she concealed it from her family, that it would be free of charge and no financial responsibility."

    And here is the loop hole for the Executive Order on Abortion. It only covers Federal Funds. Medicaid is partly funded by the Feds - and partly funded by the States. Watch out for State funded abortions to be made available as the Rules Are Written by the Vast New Bureaucracy.

    Federal law only covers Federal funds, whether you're talking an EO or the Hyde Amendment. State funds are theirs to handle under their own laws, subject to the Constitution where applicable.

    If true, the story in the OP is troubling on several levels. There isn't enough there to know if that's the case. But if a State or even locality wants to fund abortion with its own money how is that the business of the Feds barring a Constitutional amendment applied to the States?

    I'm just pointing out how meaningless the EO is, and by implication, what a fool Stupak was for falling for the gambit.

    By that standard all Federal law is meaningless, since it cannot control every aspect of State and local funding. Nice reach, bad aim.
