Planned Parenthood to Open in Schools Under ObamaCare

ObamaCare is headed to the Supreme Court.  Opponents argue the law mandates that individuals purchase a product from the government, which then places the government in control of Americans' health care decisions.  Of greater concern is the expansion of abortion under the new law and the use of tax dollars to fund it.

Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, gives the following synopsis:

The threat of giving the abortion giant Planned Parenthood more access to our children and our tax dollars is very real. ObamaCare provides grants for establishing “School-based Health Centers” – health clinics in our schools run by private organizations, including Planned Parenthood.

While the law prevents these school-based clinics from being used to “provide” abortions, there is nothing in the law that prevents them from encouraging kids to seek an abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility. In fact, the law states that it is the purpose of these clinics to provide “counseling” and “referrals,” which could be for abortions and abortion-related services.

To make your voice heard (along with over 100 members of Congress) urging the Supreme Court to protect Americans' from this level of government control, sign the petition online.
