The chair of the Senate pro-life caucus on Tuesday criticized a proposed loosening of safeguards against taxpayer funding of abortion coverage on health exchanges set up under the Affordable Care Act.
“Abortion is not healthcare and taxpayers should not be subsidizing it,” stated Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), chair and founder of the Senate Pro-Life Caucus, on Tuesday.
“This is another move by President Biden and Secretary Becerra to promote their abortion agenda above following the law, and is even more alarming as Democrats look to increase taxpayer subsidies for Obamacare,” he stated.
The Department of Health and Human Services has proposed a rule change for how abortion coverage is billed on health plan exchanges set up under the Affordable Care Act.
