Despite former President Barack Obama’s promises that “no federal dollars” would be used “to fund abortions and federal conscience laws would remain in place” under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), a recent Tweet by former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards unintentionally revealed that funding abortion through the ACA was actually part of the plan from the beginning.

In a series of tweetsRichards responded to pushback against Nancy Pelosi being nominated as Speaker of the House in the newly-elected Congress. In her tweets, Richards said she spoke with Pelosi while the ACA was being pushed through, receiving an assurance that abortion would be part of the healthcare act.

“I also find it interesting – though not surprising – that the effort to go after [Pelosi] is being led by four men in Congress,” Richards tweets. “She was the Speaker of the House when we passed the Affordable Care Act. As  has said himself, we would not have the ACA without her.”

Then came this admission:

I will never forget the meeting with her [Speaker Pelosi], when I was at PP, where she told me in the middle of that fight that she would not pass the ACA if it banned insurance coverage for abortion. Though many “progressive” men were willing to throw women under the bus, she was not.

Of course, pro-life advocates saw this coming at the time, despite the claims of Pelosi, who even had trouble wrangling members of her own party to vote for the ACA because of its abortion funding.

Planned Parenthood worked tirelessly to elect President Obama, who told members of a 2007 Planned Parenthood event,  “… In my mind reproductive care is essential care. It is basic care. So, it is at the center and at the heart of the plan that I propose….” ‘Reproductive care’ is frequently used as code for abortion.

Despite the American public’s opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions, Planned Parenthood, with direct assistance from Speaker Pelosi, made certain abortion was in the ACA, and we now know this was a deliberate and calculated effort — a cooperation with the abortion industry.

In 2014, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report that identified 1,036 ACA plans that covered abortion and received taxpayer subsidies. The 2014 report concluded that more than a thousand federally subsidized ACA policies paid for abortion, often unbeknownst to policyholders.

A recent analysis of ACA plans found that, despite existing regulations requiring it, “For 2014… none of the entities interviewed that billed insurance… either itemized abortion on the premium bill or issued a separate bill that clearly named its purpose for abortion.”

To remedy this, the Trump administration issued a new rule to make certain consumers aren’t forced to pay for abortion coverage if they don’t want to. But, of course, Planned Parenthood, which recently issued a new plan to expand abortion, is crying foul.

Why would a rule stating that consumers must be told when their plans cover abortion “make it nearly impossible… to cover abortion”? Perhaps Cecile Richards has an inkling that Americans really aren’t as favorable toward abortion as the abortion industry tries to claim.

Nancy Pelosi did not want to talk about Planned Parenthood.
It was a meeting of House Democrats early in 2017, during Republicans’ drive that March to strike down the Affordable Care Act. Ms. Pelosi and her political lieutenants laid out their counterattack: Democrats would talk about pre-existing conditions and millions of people losing coverage. And they would talk about an “age tax” — a provision in the Obamacare replacement passed by the House, which would have allowed health insurers to widen the premium gap between younger and older customers.

Ms. Pelosi acknowledged it would require restraint from Democrats. In her own San Francisco district, she said, people wanted her to fight the health care battle over funding for Planned Parenthood and Medicaid. “Those things are in our DNA, but they are not in our talking points,” Ms. Pelosi became fond of saying, according to a close associate.

Cecile Richards: (Excerpt Broadly)

“People’s impressions get based on no information,” she said. “One of the reasons I wrote what I did today is because a woman I know said to me the other day something I couldn’t believe. She was like, ‘I need to know where Pelosi is on abortion rights,’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? Nancy Pelosi is the reason we still have access to abortion rights under the Affordable Care Act.’”

Richards explained when the Affordable Care Act was on the verge of being passed, many members of Congress were ready to agree to it being passed while excluding abortion coverage.

When Richards visited Pelosi in her office, she said Pelosi looked her in the eye and said, “If there is an abortion ban, there will not be an Affordable Care Act.”

When it comes to criticisms being lobbed against Pelosi, Richards said much of it is “centimeter deep and a mile wide” and based on “whatever GOP line there is out there that day.”

…In terms of Pelosi’s accomplishments, Richards said there is no Speaker who has paralleled what she’s accomplished when leading the majority, and also when leading the minority.

“She’s done it at the same time as helping to build a caucus that’s beginning to look as diverse as the rest of this country,” Richards said. “A caucus with new progressive women, people of color, women of color, LGBTQ people, who are going to rock Capitol Hill. That’s something to look at and recognize.”

In Richards’ eyes, Pelosi deserves to sit in the seat at the table that she fought so for many years to obtain, a seat Richards also believes will be filled by many more women in the future.

Easy find? ObamaCare plans that include abortion giant Planned Parenthood

A headline today over at The Stanek Report reads: Obamacare: Still nearly impossible to find info on few “pro-life” plans

Stanek Report ObamaCare Jan 2015

It links to a Townhall story, from the article:

    Americans seeking health care coverage on the Obamacare exchange system have two weeks left in the 2015 open enrollment season. For individuals and families seeking to avoid purchasing coverage of elective abortion, the process has been – and continues to be – tricky.

    Indeed, none of the troubles besetting the Affordable Care Act has been more emblematic than its massive imposition on consumer conscience. As the Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) and Family Research Council (FRC) research teams have confirmed, it is nearly impossible for pro-life consumers to identify and access health care plans that do not trespass upon deeply held beliefs about the value of all human life.

    The groups’ joint project, ObamacareAbortion.com, sheds light on elective abortion coverage in the 2015 Obamacare plans and allows consumers to make a more informed choice.

At the end of January 2015 Kaiser Family Foundation reported:

    This lack of transparency was the impetus for a U.S. General Accounting Office review of the availability of abortion coverage in 2014 Marketplace plans.

    The report found that among the states without Marketplace abortion coverage bans, in five states (Connecticut, Hawaii, New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Vermont) there were no Multi-State plans offered, and all of the Marketplace plans in those states included abortion coverage. This meant that consumers in those states who wanted to secure a plan without abortion coverage did not have that option. While it is stipulated in the law that at least one Multi-State plan in each Marketplace is required to exclude abortion coverage, there is a transitional period to implement this policy (ending in 2017).

But, while pro-life people try to find out which plans will avoid the wholesale slaughter of unborn babies, over at abortion giant Planned Parenthood, all you need to do is enter your “zip code” to find out which plans include Planned Parenthood.

Coincidence? I think not!

And there is a Planned Parenthood plan finder page:

And what does Planned Parenthood advertise on their healthcare “Plan” website under: Maternity Care?

ABORTION SERVICES!

PP Abortion Services on ObamaCare

    What maternity care services are covered?
    Every plan will cover essential maternity services. Plans on the Marketplace will offer some prenatal services and screenings for free with no copay, as well as breastfeeding counseling and services. However, the other covered services and copay amounts vary greatly from plan to plan, so make sure you know what and how much a particular plan covers before selecting it. For Medicaid, all covered pregnancy-related services (prenatal care, labor, delivery, and post-natal care) are covered for free, with no copay.
    If you are pregnant or just had a baby and are covered under your parent’s plan, please keep in mind that your parent’s plan may not cover your newborn. It’s important to call your parent’s insurance provider to see if you can add your newborn to the plan.

    After you give birth, you may also be eligible for a special enrollment period, which means you will have 60 days to enroll yourself and your child, or just your child, into a new, more affordable health plan in the Health Insurance Marketplace. To find a plan that meets your needs and to see if you could be eligible for financial help, click here. You or your newborn may also be eligible for low-cost or free coverage through Medicaid or CHIP.

    If you need to consider ending a pregnancy, it’s important to know that abortion coverage will vary from state to state and plan to plan. Some states have banned coverage of abortion altogether, and some plans just don’t cover abortion services and procedures.

    Learn more about abortion services.

    Does the plan cover your current provider (a specific doctor, OB-GYN, or health center you prefer, such as Planned Parenthood)?
    Insurance plans have a “network” or list of providers where you can use your insurance. Not every plan will include every provider, so check to see if your current provider is included in the plans you are considering.

    If you want to have Planned Parenthood as an option for care, make sure you choose a plan that includes us as a provider.

As a Navigator, Planned Parenthood affiliates receive hundreds of thousands in federal money. In August the Obama administration announced which Planned Parenthood affiliates received grants: Iowa-based Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, Montana-based Intermountain Planned Parenthood and New Hampshire-based Planned Parenthood of Northern New England.

Despite all this $$$$ being thrown around, Planned Parenthood has been under investigation recently for fraud.

vt_fil

An affiliate of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England will pay $30,000 to the state of Vermont to settle a claim that it violated the state’s campaign finance laws in 2010.

According to blogger Jill Stanek, in August 2012 Planned Parenthood of Northern New England was one of three Planned Parenthoods to whom HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius awarded grants to serve as Obamacare ”navigators” to help people enroll in Obamacare. PPNNE was given $145,161 from a total of $655,000 awarded to the three.

The Obama administration had to know PPNNE was under investigation when it awarded PPNNE the grant. Or perhaps PPNNE didn’t acknowledge the investigation when applying for the grant? Either way, something smells.

More odorous info: At the time of PPNNE’s grant award, Steve Trombley was the CEO. Trombley was formerly CEO of Planned Parenthood of Chicago, and then Planned Parenthood of Illinois, when Obama was state senator and U.S. senator. The two men were close allies. Obama even gave Trombley a shout out to during his infamous speech to Planned Parenthood in 2008 (:41 on the video).

Earlier this month New Hampshire Right to Life sued PPNNE for prescribing the RU486 abortion pill too late in the pregnancy, contrary to FDA protocol, which violates state law.

Other Planned Parenthood affiliates are also being looked at for fraud, but so far are not directly connected to the Navigator program.

Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast recently settled a medicaid fraud case with the state of Texas for $4.3 million.

In July of 2012, Illinois Medicaid’s inspector general investigated the billing practices of Planned Parenthood of Illinois’ medical director. More on that here. and more here

Planned Parenthood has a ton of use for all the federal dollars being shoveled their way. They are building Mega Centers and paying their staff 6 digit salaries.

The question remains, when you hand over all your personal information to an ObamaCare promoter, do you want it to be an abortion clinic employee who has no problem defrauding the tax payer? Think about it.
