Kathy Dahlkemper: I Wouldn't Have Voted for Obamacare If I'd Known About HHS Rule
Even Democrats agree: the HHS regulation requiring Christian charities to provide the "week after" abortion pill and states to subsidize insurance policies covering elective abortion violates protections to ensure that taxpayer dollars are not spent on abortion.
Former Democratic congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper, a Catholic from Erie, Pennsylvania, cast a crucial vote in favor of Obamacare in 2010. She lost her seat that November in part because of her controversial support of Obamacare. But Dahlkemper said recently that she would have never voted for the health care bill had she known that the Department of Health and Human Services would require all private insurers, including Catholic charities and hospitals, to provide free coverage of contraception, sterilization procedures, and the "week-after" pill "ella" that can induce early abortions.
