So Republicans can have Abortions… but they won’t let women buying Health Insurance have one?

This article turned up in Politico, which I feel more and more is a publication of the Right.

Here’s a quote:

The Republican National Committee’s health insurance plan covers elective abortion – a procedure the party’s own platform calls “a fundamental assault on innocent human life.”


Federal Election Commission Records show the RNC purchases its insurance from Cigna. Two sales agents for the company said that the RNC’s policy covers elective abortion.


Informed of the coverage, RNC spokeswoman Gail Gitcho told POLITICO that the policy pre-dates the tenure of current RNC Chairman Michael Steele.

“The current policy has been in effect since 1991, and we are taking steps to address the issue,” Gitcho said.

A Quote to Start the Day

“This is the decision that will have consequences for the better part of his administration. So Mr. President, don’t get pushed by the left to do nothing; don’t get pushed by the right to do everything. You take your time and you figure it out. You’re the commander-in-chief and this is what you were elected for.”

– Colin Powell in an ABC News interview comments on Obama’s reported rejection of the Afghanistan troop options presented by his National Security team.

Couldn’t agree more. Take your time, Mr. President. Make a good decision.
