Quote: "The institute estimates federal taxpayers will heavily subsidize between 71,000 and 111,500 abortions per year through federal premium tax credits and Medicaid expansion for subscribers to plans that permit abortion." And "A taxpayer may have an individual plan that does not cover elective abortion, but his or her tax dollars will be increasingly flowing to public and private plans in other states that reimburse for abortions at a higher rate than previously seen in American health care,” Donovan said. “Moreover, the ability to avoid the companies that sponsor these plans may decrease over time as they grow in size and continue to curry favor from a government that views abortion as a form of therapy.”And also: "Donovan said that the Obama administration is paying Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S., to direct consumers to abortion-funding plans in the multi-state plans through the Center for Medicaid Services’ “Navigators” program. This could help enroll girls and women in plans that cover elective abortion and discourage them from enrolling in plans that do not." -..."

Juggling expenses of a household is something every head of household anywhere understands from time to time. But what Christians do not accept or agree too, is the taxpayer support of the planned murders of innocents-in-the-wombs of women. We, Christians, collectively around the world cannot agree to that, nor accept it in our government. Therefore, the 'shutdown" of a "house divided" according to Matthew 12:25, King James Holy Bible. *
Please read this article because it says ObamaCare also funds abortions for some of the richest people in the U S i.e. those who are in Congress or staffers, there at:
http://www.worldtribune.com/2013/10/04/christians-with-a-conscience-cannot-abide-obamacare/ with quote: "Christians need to engage in peaceful civil disobedience against President Obama’s signature health care law. The reason is simple and macabre: Obamacare enables U.S. taxpayer funds to pay for abortions by members of Congress and their staff. That’s right. Pro-life Christians will be forced to subsidize the slaughter of unborn children." And also this quote:""Devout Christians are obligated to oppose Obamacare — including those who champion social justice and universal health care. Christian teaching is crystal clear: The murder of innocent human life is wrong, a heinous transgression of one of God’s most sacred commandments. Abortion is murder; it is state-sanctioned infanticide. Obamacare is ensnaring Christians in its nefarious web, making them culpable in the killing of unborn babies. Their tax dollars will pay for the abortionist’s knife. Unwitting Christians will have the blood of innocent children on their hands." Jeffrey T. Kuhner who is a radio talk show host in Boston.
Christians everywhere are urged to read the scriptures and understand what is going on in the battle for the preborn.
Some states have ramped up their protests against ObamaCare because of its funding of abortion. http://www.lifenews.com/2013/10/04/the-most-undervalued-pro-life-argument-against-abortion/ [aka "the equal rights argument"]. See Justice for all website.

The U S is not the only country with this problem. Per Life Site News, Canadians are facing same battle. From http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/defund-abortion-rallies-sweep-the-nation-with-more-to-come/ is quote:"Pro-life activists across the country held rallies Thursday calling on provincial governments to end taxpayer funding of abortion." Good report of protest and a very good photo showing protest signs. Canadians across the country are protesting killing of unborn with taxpayers' dollars.
As for what I personally am doing about the battle that is only a battle of words so far, I am blogging, tweeting, researching, painting paintings to try to provoke in some of the nation's most radical, hardened women in the world a maternal instinct. And trying to persuade using logic, medical facts, legal facts** and experience as Registered Nurse with much work experience, that tiny humans in the womb are human and they must be protected by the governments. I realized that the way to overturn Roe v Wade was suggested by Justice Blackmun who wrote the Roe decision in 1973 for the Supreme Court. You can read what he wrote that holds the key to unlock the stranglehold on the Supreme Court [for redoing that awful Roe decision that attempted to give legitimacy to planned murders of innocents], on these blogs of mine:
Also, I tweet on the prolife cause on twitter : @ProlifeNurse; and on other twitter accounts also. So, follow me if you like.
Also, just so you know, I am white, Christian, single, woman, and the same woman who painted the ethnic series of oil paintings that have been displayed on web intermittently since 2007; and who paints/ sketches/ draws frequently to create art. I moved to Missouri in Oct 2009 after a second divorce in Oct 2007. Gloria Poole is my real, born with name and I legally resumed my full born with name and removed the surnames that had been my married name after each divorce. If you want to satisfy your mind about the art I create, you can see some of the ethnic series of paintings on these blogs of mine:
http://gloriapoole.tumblr.com https://gloria0817.blogspot.com. and other blogs of mine also. I do not conform the blogs so to see all art I have put on my assortment of blogs, you would have to see every blog and also see the archives.
