‘Big Abortion’ Gets ObamaCare Money

The Democrats have a problem. After dreaming of government health care for 100 years, they finally rammed it through Congress after Barack Obama’s election. Now they have to sell their plan, and people aren’t buying it. Among their tactics is spending tremendous amounts of money to persuade people to sign up. Last Thursday, the Department of Health and Human Services awarded $67 million in grants to more than 100 organizations nationwide to enlist the aid of so-called “navigators” who will provide assistance for individuals buying health insurance. Enrollment is supposed to begin Oct. 1 via state-created websites where people can compare and buy different plans, as well as check whether they qualify for subsidies. We’ll see if that deadline is met when half of all ObamaCare deadlines have not.

Big chunks of the $67 million will go to states, and smaller amounts are going to businesses and organizations such as the American Medical Association and the NAACP. In our view, however, one of the more egregious awards is $655,000 to Planned Parenthood affiliates in three states. The abortion mills aren’t exactly hurting for money, and, their howls about “women’s health” notwithstanding, we don’t consider the butchering of babies to be health care. The announcement isn’t surprising, however, coming from an administration with a sad record of trampling religious liberty in order to uphold the Left’s sacrament of abortion.
