The current law of the land strictly forbids federal money being used to fund abortions.
But this Monday the Office of Personnel Management ruled that members of Congress and their staffs will be able to buy health care plans that pay for abortions, even though the premiums are funded by taxpayer dollars.
Many believe that violates the law. But President Obama and most Democrats don't see it that way and are determined to stick by that ruling.
Ahhh, the unintended consequences of Obamacare. So many funny bounces. So few congressional politicians with convictions.
Can good Catholics or Mormons live with their tax money used like this?
Does this really count as funding abortions, or is there a fig leaf of separation?
The story has significant nuances. You can read about them here. Stand by for a much bigger controversy.
