WASHINGTON, July 28 /Christian Newswire/ -- The Congressional Research Service (CRS) confirmed in a report released today that abortions can be funded under ObamaCare. Concerned Women for America (CWA) President Wendy Wright stated:
"The House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly for an amendment to ObamaCare to ban funding abortion. But the final bill stripped that amendment and was passed on a promise from Pres. Obama that he would sign an executive order banning abortion funding. This CRS report proves that was an empty promise.
"Pres. Obama and Secretary Sebelius need to make this right and pass regulations ensuring our tax dollars do not pay for killing innocent children and harming women. Congress should also learn from this fiasco that ObamaCare has nasty surprises in it and repeal the whole thing."
