Obama Voted Against Helping Pregnant WomenI hear from Obama apologists that the Democrats care about women, that they care about the poor and that John McCain has voted against helping women and children.
The truth is very different.
Both Obama and his running mate Joe Biden voted AGAINST extending the health care program to covr pregnant women and their unborn children. The State Children's Health Insurance (SCHIP) is a federal program that provides funds to states to provide health care services to children of low-income families. States had the option of extending coverage to unborn children, a process that would qualify pregnant women for coverage during their pregnancy, As an administrative rule, it could be altered by a future administration. So Senator Wayne Allard of Colorado offered an amendment earlier this year to put the rule in existing law and make this assistance for pregnant women and children permanent. senator McCain voted in favor of the amendment. As previously stated, Obama and Biden voted against it.
Because it might help a women choose life instead of aborion?
Explain this to me, Doug Kmiec and all of you Obama supporters who claim to oppose abortion.
Why did your candidate vote against such a bill to assist women and children?
Meanwhile you misrepresent the truth and lull some voters into a false sense of frustration and desperation.
Here is a man who voted to allow the killing of babies who survive an abortion.
The same man voted against providing health insurance to women and children in need.
and he claims that he cares about the people in this country.
