Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius
just released a new report on the state of Obamacare. House Minority Leader John Boehner notes
that the report says nothing about the executive order that Obama issued to Rep. Bart Stupak about abortion coverage.
Has the Department provided guidance to states to implement the president’s Executive Order on abortions? When does the Administration expect to issue the directive on abortions? Will the new federal high-risk pools touted by the Administration also ensure that abortions will not be covered? Millions of Americans care deeply about this aspect of the new law and its implementation, and no progress report is complete without detailed information about it.
