13. Actually it's not really the case. People without money never had insurance anyway.
So they always paid out of pocket. We should be clamouring at the doors of Hyde and repeal that if we're going to use the poverty argument.


Medicaid does offer it and this is maintained in the Stupad, that if you are a victim of rape or incest, or in the case of mother's health you will still be covered. Medicaid abolishedthe provision of funding abortions for thoe without "means" during the 70s. So that's not the strongest argument to make.

However, I won't strike down this bill over this amendment. Sorry---I may be selfish but there are people in the millions who share my case and I'm female. I fuckin' hate this amendment..but proper health care is screaming louder from my side.
