Judge Napolitano makes it clear that the President’s Executive Order, gifted to Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) in exchange for his ‘yea’ vote, and the ‘yea’ vote of others on the Senate health care legislation, cannot stop taxpayer monies from funding abortion. Here is a snippet from Napolitano
The legislation passed last night uses Federal dollars to pay for Federal insurance policies which provide abortion coverage for any reason under the state law where the abortion is to occur.
If Congressman Stupak thinks the President’s Executive Order can stop that, he is sadly mistaken, because the performer of the abortion, and the payer of the abortion, is not the Federal government. It is a doctor employed by an insurance company, whose policy has been purchased by the Federal government.
So the President can’t stop that with an Executive Order.
