Rita Diller writes in a march 29 CNSNews.com column:
Perhaps the largest pot of gold awaiting Planned Parenthood under Obamacare is the $7 billion that has been earmarked for the Community Health Centers program for primary health care, which specifically includes gynecological and obstetrics care. This money appears in the bill without restrictions on the use of the money for abortion.
It is not restricted by the Hyde Amendment, since the Hyde Amendment applies only to funds flowing through the annual Health and Human Services appropriations bill.
That's not true. In fact, community health centers do not perform abortions, the Department of Health and Human Services already bans the use of CHC funding for abortions, and the National Association of Community Health Centers agrees that the Hyde Amendment applies to CHC funding.
A March 30 CNS column by Helen Avare asserted that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg made a "frank admission to the New York Times" that she had always assumed that Roe v. Wade was intended to "set up Medicaid funding for abortion” for “populations that we don’t want to have too many of.'"
That's not quite true either -- the full context of the quote shows that Ginsburg actually attributed that sentiment to others.
