Uh, There is No Abortion Funding In Health Care Bill.

Just 'cause I thought it needed to be said again. The right is hyperventilating over the "greatest funding of abortion since Roe." But it ain't so.

What was defeated yesterday was an expansion of limits on funding, or further restrictions to access, as we know the right is hell bent on pursuing. They're actually expert at limiting access (see state laws).

Which is why you get this sort of crazy rhetoric about Senators sheltering Planned Parenthood's finances, , colluding with abortion "extremists," rationing of care because abortions cost less than births, and this:

Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, commented on the Senate's vote on the Nelson Amendment to the health care bill. "Those in the Senate who rejected this Amendment have voted to let their attachment to the abortion industry interfere with health care reform in this country. These Senators could have listened to their constituents and opposed abortion funding. Instead, they are allowing this effort at reform to be hijacked by abortion extremists."
