Jeffrey's Claim That Senate Bill Funds Abortion Debunked

Media Matters details how Terry Jeffrey's claim in a Nov. 19 article that the Senate health care reform bill "would mandate federally subsidized abortion" is false. In fact, the section of the bill Jeffrey cited explicitly prohibits the use of federal funds to provide coverage for abortions that are currently restricted under Hyde, and requires segregation of non-federal funds from federal funds to pay for those procedures in a manner similar to that used in many states that cover such abortions under the federally subsidized Medicaid program.

Will CNS publish a correction? It's not exactly known for doing so.
