With this power grab, the abortion industry and its political allies intendto:
* Force taxpayers to fund a huge abortion-industry bailout --something the majority of Americans oppose, and certainly cannot afford inthese tough economic times
* Mandate that virtually every American be forced into a health planthat includes abortion coverage
* Require honorable medical providers to violate their consciences andperform abortions -- or risk losing their jobs
* Impose one of the cornerstones of the<http://action.aul.org/site/R?i=2LNEonD4477rWnoXsquVdg..> "Freedom of ChoiceAct" (FOCA) by stealth
