Sebelius Claims Senate Health Care Bill Does Not Provide Federal Funds for Abortion

Yes, Abortion IS covered in Obamacare.  They just won't admit it.

U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, contradicting both the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and members of Congress, said Monday that the Senate health-care bill uses no federal money to pay for health care plans which cover elective abortions.

“There is no federal funding for abortion in either the House or the Senate bill,” Sebelius told CNSNews.com during a telephone news conference on Monday on health information technology.

“Go to the Congressional Research Service, which is the objective research body, for their detailed analysis of how both is handled,” she added.
