Stupak strikes back at NARAL falsehoods

U.S. Congressman Bart Stupak (D) has released a strong response to a new NARAL Pro-Choice America ad that is circulating the latest misinformation about the Stupak ammendment.

NARAL falsely claims Stupak introduced abortion into America’s health care debate. It was Congresswoman Capps (D-CA) who injected abortion into health care with her amendment.  The Capps amendment attempted to set a new precedent for abortion funding, essentially negating the Hyde language that has been law for more than 30 years.  The Capps amendment mandated at least one insurance plan provide abortion coverage; required a minimum $1 monthly charge for every enrollee in the public option that would go toward paying for abortion; and, allowed individuals receiving federal affordability credits to purchase health insurance plans that cover abortion.
