Human Life International took a close look at a study suggesting
Obamacare will reduce abortions and concludes it is not true.
After thoroughly examining the Patient Protection and Affordable
Care Act (aka "ObamaCare"), Dr. Brian Clowes of Human Life
International suggests that if the government wants to reduce
abortions, it is going about it in the wrong way.
In the first place, Clowes points out that in states that fund
abortion, the abortion rate is 50 percent higher. Secondly, he is
convinced the government will get as many teenagers as possible on
IUDs and injectable birth control.
"The problem with this is IUDs and injectables have chemicals
that cause early abortions," he says. "I was just looking at the
patient information pamphlets, and they say on all of these things
they cause early abortions by rendering the uterine lining hostile
Plus, he believes teens will feel a false sense of security,
resulting in promiscuity and a much higher incidence of sexually
transmitted diseases. The study in favor of ObamaCare, however,
stresses that every unwanted pregnancy that is avoided will save
"But they completely neglect that over the 80-year lifespan of
even an unwanted baby, they pay tremendous benefits back into
society in taxes and goods consumed and so on, which amounts to
millions of dollars each," Clowes tells OneNewsNow.
"I did a little calculation and found that for every single
dollar that you save by using this kind of birth control, you lose
$150 in the long run."
He concludes the long-term financial impact of ObamaCare will
create an additional societal burden.
