It may be by design, or the result of some other hidden agenda, but for a faith-based individual like myself the real question I see with the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act is not the computer system, or the fact that $634,00,000 was invested into it and that it collapsed on the first day, or that the United States Government, with the backing of the major insurance companies in this country have forced it’s citizens to buy an insurance policy not from the government, but from an insurance company. The real question is the fact that individuals who want to know if the plan they are considering will fund elective abortions, cannot find out that fact until they actually sign up for the plan.
Another very tricky issue is that a $1.00 deduction will be removed from each premium payment to be used to fund elective abortions. The deduction is being referenced as a fee and not a premium payment in order to lessen the sting of knowing that we are contributing to the taking of innocent human life.
The more we talk about money and Obamacare, the less we will remember those who cannot defend themselves; the unborn who are not being represented by anyone in this matter and who may be very surprised to learn their lives are only worth one dollar.
You may be asking yourself, “I thought this article was supposed to be about insurance issues in California.” Well, it is. Let me quote to you from Section 533 of the California Insurance Code, “An insurer is not liable for a loss caused by the wilful act of the insured…” I believe these words limit the role an insurance company can take in reimbursing the expense of taking innocent life, even if the Government states otherwise.
We are facing a moral dilemma here and the question being dealt with is allowing or not allowing elective abortions is eclipsing the real issue---and that is saving innocent lives by determining a way in which this society can develop programs that can save life. This program can include everything from prenatal care, to career training for parents to enable them to support the new life they have been given or if necessary adoption referrals.
