Nebraska governor rejects prenatal care funding for illegal immigrants

April 13 | Fri Apr 13, 2012 7:23pm EDT

(Reuters) - Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman vetoed a proposal to restore Medicaid-funded prenatal care for illegal immigrants on Friday, but the initiative could still survive if the state legislature rejects his move next week.

Nebraska state senators voted 31-15 on Wednesday to restore the program, which was eliminated two years ago after providing prenatal care for decades.

The number of votes in favor was one more than would be needed to override the veto and the Nebraska legislature has one day left in its current session -- next Wednesday -- in which to do so.

Heineman, who is anti-abortion, also said he had "grave concerns" that some funding could go to abortion provider Planned Parenthood and that Nebraska could become a sanctuary for illegal immigrants because no bordering states offered similar coverage.

1. Hypocrite.

And he'll still call himself "pro-life".

2. Any Republicans that call themselves pro-life are truly hypocrites

 

because there is nothing pro-life about having to take care of unwanted and sick kids.

Please provide proof that God said no on abortions, please - Republicans. I'm waiting for an answer.
