WASHINGTON, Feb. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- President Obama's newly released health care plan prompted this response from Concerned Women for America's President Wendy Wright:
"Obama's plan is a re-hash of the Senate and House bills with a higher price tag and will force Americans to pay for abortions. It would put the U.S. government in the abortion business, reduce health care for patients, raise costs, and create more bloated agencies. It puts each American's health under the control of a federal commission that will decide what care we can receive. Americans who choose something other than a government-approved plan will be forced to pay a fine.
"Obama's plan pays off his friends with sweetheart deals, like $11 billion for "Community Health Centers" that may be run by abortion provider Planned Parenthood. Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood's president, visited Obama's White House numerous times in the past year starting on the day he was inaugurated as the administration was crafting its health care plan.
"Americans do not want to pay for someone else's abortion, and we don't want abortionists getting rich off our tax dollars."
