In a major victory for the Obama administration, the Supreme court has issued its second major decision up-holding abortion-funding Obamacare. The Supreme Court has upheld a key provision of ObamaCare today in their decision in King v. Burwell, ruling that millions of Americans can continue to receive taxpayer subsidies to allow them to purchase health care plans under Obamacare.
The 6-3 decision authored by Chief Justice John Roberts was the second time the high court rejected efforts by Obamacare opponents to limit or stop Obamacare. Opponents of Obmacare argued that the Affordable Care Act only allowed subsidies to be used in state exchange marketplaces rather than in the federal marketplace but the Supreme Court ruled otherwise.
With regards to abortion, the case underscores the fact that millions of Americans are now eligible to have Obamacare health care plans receiving federal subsidies that fund abortions. Some 34 states and 6.4 million people are getting subsidies to help them purchase insurance plans under Obamacare and over 1,000 plans eligible for federal subsidies currently cover elective abortion. That, pro-life groups say, underscores the need for the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, a Congressional bill that would zero out abortion funding under Obamacare.
