Courts force 14 States to pay for elective abortions

Here’s an interesting fact: of the 17 states that use their own Medicaid funds to cover elective abortions, 14 of them were forced to do so by the courts. (Georgia may be the next one.)

The “Hyde Amendment” has been added to Federal health care funding bills since 1976. Those who support abortion on demand (such as the ACLU, the Center for American Progress, and, of course, the National Abortion Federation and Planned Parenthood) are constantly calling for its “repeal,” although in fact, the language would just be dropped from that year’s appropriations bill.

Reminds me of the comment of one of the judges in a “right to die” case: The founding fathers did not intend for the important matters to be decided by the courts and only the trivial matters determined by the legislators.
