No ObamaCare abortions

As a woman, I applaud those women in the Pennsylvania General Assembly who took the lead to ensure our taxpayer dollars would not be spent on abortion under ObamaCare.

Thanks to the bill's female sponsor, Rep. Donna Oberlander, R-Clarion, and those women, both Republican and Democrat, who stood with her. Because of these women, the bill passed by a resounding 144-53 vote in the state House, sailed through the Senate and has been signed into law.

National polls show the vast majority of American taxpayers, including 70 percent of women taxpayers, do not want tax dollars to be spent on abortion under federal health care reform.

Thanks to these female public servants for listening to the voices of women throughout the commonwealth and safeguarding their tax dollars.
