"It's now becoming clear that Barack Obama is willing to put everything on the table in order to be the president who passes health-care reform," writes Charmaine Yoest, the president of Americans United for Life. "Everything, that is, except a ban on federal funding for abortion."
For readers who are confused by Democratic claims that the bill is neutral on the subject, Yoest explains how the proposal would break down barriers against federal abortion funding.
