Associated Press Again Confirms Health Care Bills Include Abortion Funding

The Associated Press has confirmed again that the current health care reform bills in Congress include massive abortion funding and mandates. Top Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs may want to read the article because he wrongly told reporters twice last week that the Hyde Amendment stop the funding.

In a new analysis of the health care bills written by AP reporter Charles Babington, the news service answers the question, "Would new health care legislation allow abortions to be funded with tax money?"

"The proposed legislation would permit government-sponsored health plans, open to non-Medicaid patients, to cover abortions," Babington writes.

"In seeking a political compromise, a House version would require publicly sponsored plans to pay for abortions," and that the money could come from "customers' premiums."
