WaPo Columnist: Obamacare will pay for Abortions

Ah, yes. The bill taking over our health care has cleared Congress and been signed into law by President Obama. Now, the lame stream media can finally admit the truth. Obamacare will cover abortion.

From WaPo:

Still cloudy is whether the new law of the land allows funding for abortions and whether President Obama's executive order is of any real (judicially enforceable) value. The answer to the latter is in little dispute. It is no. An executive order cannot override a statute.

As to the funding issue, well, it's intentionally complicated. And suffice to say, it shouldn't be.

Defenders argue that: (1) nowhere does the bill say funds will go toward abortion; (2) the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding for abortion, applies.
