CNS Falsely Suggests Obama Health Care Bill Exceeds Hyde Amendment
Topic: CNSNews.com

A Feb. 22 CNSNews.com article by Penny Starr claimed that President Obama's health care proposal "mostly mirrors the Senate bill and, in particular, would allow for tax dollars to be used to fund health plans that cover abortion."

In fact, as Media Matters details, the Senate bill follows the Hyde Amendment by not using federal funds for abortion. Rather, in health plans in the proposed health insurance exchange that offer coverage for abortion, premiums collected to cover abortion are segregated from other federal funds -- a procedure permitted by federal law.
