29. New York Times editorial today: Stupak amendment "reached far beyond Hyde"
Edited on Tue Nov-10-09 11:10 AM by SacramentoBlue


The restrictions would fall on women eligible to buy coverage on new health insurance exchanges. They are a sharp departure from current practice, an infringement of a womans right to get a legal medical procedure and an unjustified intrusion by Congress into decisions best made by patients and doctors.

The anti-abortion Democrats behind this coup insisted that they were simply adhering to the so-called Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal dollars to pay for almost all abortions in a number of government programs. In fact, they reached far beyond Hyde and made it largely impossible to use a policyholders own dollars to pay for abortion coverage
