Dear Pro-Life Friend,
Lies, lies, and more lies.
That’s the only way to accurately describe the way that the Obama Administration has handled the issue of abortion funding in Obamacare since the very beginning.
[Note: I know this is a busy week as SBA List members prepare for Christmas. If you don’t have time to read the entire message, take just 30 seconds to contact your elected officials in Washington and demand that they pass the Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act.]
The latest lie came last week, when HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius claimed before a House panel that if consumers wanted to know which plans cover abortion under Obamacare, all they had to do was check the summary and benefits section of each plan on Healthcare.gov.
She said this after promising over a month ago to the same House panel that she would provide them with a list of plans that do not cover abortion.
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius didn’t keep her promise, and then she lied to cover it up.
Her blatant lie is proven by a report released this week by the Charlotte Lozier Institute, our education and research arm, which concluded:
“…clear statements of coverage of elective abortion via the Summary of Benefits and Coverage and other plan documents are not the rule. If anything, they are the exception.”
Pro-life Members of Congress have had enough of Kathleen Sebelius’s lies, which is why Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) have introduced the “Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act.”
Take Action: Tell your Representative and two Senators to pass the Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act immediately.
This legislation does two very simple things:
- Requires the Obamacare exchanges to prominently disclose if an insurance plan covers abortions
- Requires the disclosure of the amount of the “abortion fee,” a surcharge required under Obamacare for plans that include abortion
Pro-Life Friend, tell your elected officials you’ve had enough with the lies… is transparency too much to ask?
Take Action Now: Tell your elected officials in Washington to pass the Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act immediately.
And remember, your SBA List will not stop fighting this terrible pro-abortion law. We’ve been fighting it from the start, and we are determined as ever to stop it.

PS: Don’t forget to contact your elected officials in Washington right now and demand that they pass the Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act, sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) in the House and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) in the Senate. Then, forward this message to as many of your pro-life friends as possible so they can take action too.
