Grassley Brings Up Abortion at Senate Finance Committee Hearing

Senator Charles Grassley brought up the abortion issue at today's Senate Finance Committee hearing on health care reform.

Watch his comments below. A partial transcription is below.

Senator Charles Grassley: "On abortion, despite commitments made by the President and Secretary Sebelius, this bill does not follow the longstanding principle that federal funds should not be provided for elective abortions.  Instead, federal funds would end up subsidizing elective abortions and plans that offer abortion coverage would be subsidized with those same federal funds."

So who's right? National Right to Life claims abortion is covered under the current bill. More on that here.

Politifact.com has done a truth test on the NRLC claim. They say part of their claim fails the test. More here.

A slew of abortion related amendments will be introduced this week. Read more about them here.
