@SurlyDuck: It is indeed unfortunate that the result of this hideous amendment would fall heaviest on those of lower incomes. One of the main points of having health care reform is to ensure that benefits are available regardless of socio-economic status.
However, I’m really uncomfortable with the last portion of your post. Maybe I’m just a dimwit and I’m not getting it. Are you suggesting that a benefit of having abortions available to everyone is that we won’t be over-run with the children of the poor? That these future citizens of less fortunate social standing have less potential than their more wealthy peers, and less of a place in a "healthy American future"?
I’m picking up more than a whiff of social engineering from your comment. While it’s arguable that lower incomes correlate with a lot of social problems, correlation is not causation. It doesn’t do any more than point out areas where our energies ought to be directed, to ensure a better future for everyone. #cstreet
