      Alex Cortes is the Chairman of the newly-created Restore the Dream Foundation whose first project DeFundIt.org is advocating for the de-funding of the health care reform law.

The National Right to Life Committee reported that Pennyslvania’s high-risk health insurance program will offer citizens the first batch of Obamacare’s federal funding that can be used to pay for abortions, providing final confirmation that President Obama’s executive order to supposedly prevent this occurrence wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on.

It is a slap in the face to the American people to force them to fund a practice a clear majority of them oppose.  Secondly, with 9.5% unemployment and an unsustainable $13 trillion debt, shouldn’t the White House be focused on creating jobs instead of creating more debt?

Our representatives should not sit idle and let the President blatantly break his pledge that “there will be no public funding for abortion in this legislation (Obamacare).”

Congress should immediately pass legislation that bans federal funds for high-risk health insurance plans that offer abortion coverage.

This necessary legislation will give Congressman Bart Stupak, President Obama, and company one final opportunity to prove they are representatives with enough integrity to keep their word to the American people.
