Healthcare "reform" and abortion.

Amy Welborn has everything you need to know about the extensive allowances for federal funding of domestic abortions (remember, you already fund international abortions). The comments in her box are a sweet sampling of the emotional charges surrounding this bill!

There are a myriad of options for you to register your own complaints with your representatives. I like the Susan B. Anthony List. Whatever your politics, I think we can find "common ground": No one should be forced to fund abortion under the aegis of "healthcare."

And, not that we should be indulging in nightmares, a little moral imagination is always helpful to light fires under our seats. And Sometimes Tea imagines a scenario that is all too real for some of us. OB's already give women a hard time for these sorts of things, it's just that right now we have a choice whether to cave under pressure or not.
