03.23.10 - Question: Does Healthcare Reform Actually Provide Federal Funding for Abortion?
During final debate on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Rep. Joseph Pitts (R-PA), called the healthcare reform bill "pro-abortion" and claimed it would actually provide federal funds to pay for abortions.

Anthony group continue to mislead the public by claiming that the Act requires federal agencies to subsidize abortion services.
