Democrats Abandon Base

Carol Moseley Braun’s opinion for the Chicago Tribune addressing why the anti-abortion funding provision of the House’s health care bill betrays women’s trust: “As written, the bill so eviscerates Roe vs. Wade as to practically eliminate a woman’s right to reproductive health choice. To be sure, it does not make this most personal of decisions a crime, as was the case in most states pre-Roe, but it does take away the ability to pay for it, even for women who have private insurance.”
