Mandate [man-deyt] noun, verb – an authoritative order or command; to order or require.
- Do you want to pay for abortions?
- Are you comfortable with a healthcare plan that forces doctors to perform abortions, even though it’s against their conscience?
- Are you okay with at least one abortion clinic in your neighborhood?
- Do you want to pay a tax if you decide not to enroll in the government public plan that covers abortion?
Americans don’t want an abortion mandate; they don’t want taxpayer funded abortions; they don’t want President Obama and Washington bureaucrats taking over healthcare.
Why will Americans be forced to pay for abortions?
The government run healthcare plan is going to cover all Americans. It is precedent by law that abortion is covered under the government-run healthcare plan unless stated otherwise. Amendments were presented in the Senate committees where the bills were drafted to exclude abortion and they were voted down.
Why will more abortion clinics pop up in my neighborhood?
Since abortion will be mandated and essentially made a fundamental right under the new healthcare plan, it will be mandatory that the companies participating the program meet the minimum requirements for participating in the exchange, insurance companies will have to ensure there are abortionists readily accessible in every region.
What will happen to the doctors who refuse to perform abortions because they don’t agree with it?
They will either be forced to perform or refer for abortions or leave their jobs. In a recent survey, 95% of faith-based physicians said they would leave their practice rather than perform or refer for an abortion. This could cause chaos not only in the private practice sector but also in Catholic and other faith-based hospitals. They could conceivably shut their doors rather than comply with the law.
