Pryor Blasted: GAO Report Reveals 1,000+ ObamaCare Plans Include Taxpayer Funded Abortion On-Demand

 Pro-life Group Urges Voters to Defeat Pryor at the Ballot Box

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The non-partisan government watchdog, the Government Accountability Office (GAO), has released a new report that identifies 1,036 ObamaCare plans that cover abortion on demand and receive taxpayer subsidies. The GAO report also found that nearly all of the insurance issuers sampled are not itemizing the required separate abortion surcharge on its bills – confirming that the Obama Administration is ignoring the law’s abortion accounting gimmick. The report further found that disclosure of abortion coverage in plans is inconsistent, confirming criticisms from both sides of the abortion debate that transparency of coverage is lacking. The report directly contradicts President Obama’s 2009 promise that “under our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.”

“Mark Pryor has claimed to be pro-life, yet he voted for ObamaCare – the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion in history. Today’s GAO report is further proof of the Affordable Care Act’s massive abortion-funding provisions,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of Women Speak Out PAC, a partner of the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List. “For years, Senator Pryor has stood by Harry Reid and the abortion lobby by blocking a vote on critical legislation to fix the abortion funding loopholes. That’s why we need to defeat him in November.”

“Our Arkansas team has knocked on nearly 40,000 doors across the state as a part of our effort to educate voters on Pryor’s record. When Arkansans find out that he voted in favor of taxpayer funding of abortion, they are significantly less likely to vote for him,” Dannenfelser continued. “We have more than 100 dedicated pro-life canvassers on the ground who won’t stop speaking out from now until Election Day.”
The Susan B. Anthony List and its Political Action Committees, the SBA List Candidate Fund and Women Speak Out PAC, are dedicated to pursuing policies and electing candidates who will reduce and ultimately end abortion. To that end, the SBA List emphasizes the education, promotion, mobilization, and election of pro-life women.  The SBA List is a network of more than 365,000 pro-life Americans nationwide.

It's illegal for taxpayer money to fund abortion. Why doesn't Congress have him arrested ?
