Obamacare PR: Supporting abortionists, of course

August 19. 2013 12:08AM

The continued shell game that is Obamacare proceeded last week with the announcement that Planned Parenthood of Northern New England (whose core business includes abortion-on-demand) will get even more taxpayer money in this operation.

This time, it will be to help spread the word about how good the Affordable Care Act will be for everyone.

Three Planned Parenthood affiliates will get more than a half-million tax dollars to help citizens “navigate” the maze that is Obamacare.

“It is a shame that these federal dollars will be going to Planned Parenthood,” said Ashley Pratte of the conservative Cornerstone Action. “As an abortion service provider, federal dollars and public funds should not be granted to this organization.”

That is obvious, but irrelevant in the minds of those who want Big Government involved in your health care decisions. And let’s spare no expense doing it, either. This federal propaganda program is in addition to the program Gov. Maggie Hassan has endorsed to do the same kind of thing, at the state level.

The Hassan-backed program, it happens, is one that is in violation of state law. But that matters no more, apparently, than using tax dollars to underwrite an abortion provider.
