Former Democratic Representative Kathy Dahlkemper of Erie, Pennsylvania, who cast a crucial vote for Obamacare, now has this to say, ""I would have never voted for the final version of the bill if I expected the Obama Administration to force Catholic hospitals and Catholic Colleges and Universities to pay for contraception.”
In a press release sent out by "Democrats for Life" in November, 2011, Dahlkemper, a Catholic, further said, "We worked hard to prevent abortion funding in health care and to include clear conscience protections for those with moral objections to abortion and contraceptive devices that cause abortion. I trust that the President will honor the commitment he made to those of us who supported final passage."
Many will argue that the President signed an executive order saying the law wouldn't fund abortions. However, the order did nothing to prevent the subsidized health care exchanges from covering elective abortions.
