The Protect life Act, H.R. 358 would address flaws in the new health care reform law and bring it into line with policies on abortion and conscience rights that have long prevailed in other federal health programs.It would do so by preventing funds under the new law from subsidizing abortion or healthcare plans that cover abortion, protecting the consciences of health care providers who decline to participte in an abortion, and ensuring that the law doesn't overide state laws on abortion and conscience

Anyone who voted for this bill is voting to murder women. PERIOD.

This law permits insurers to deny women life-saving procedures. It allows doctors to let their patients die. Cathy McMorris-Rodgers is gung-ho about it because she is secretly a patriarchal cyborg.

The "type" of people who promote legislation like this, while claiming to be "protecting life", are frequently the same "types" who support massive spending on "defense" and war. They oppose abortion, out of an unspoken desire to have a ready supply of "cannon fodder" for their next war. (Cynical, yes - but probably true.)
