Clinic needs $1000.00 or my Medicaid card.”
The broken cistern in
is finally being found out and investigated. Something that most
taxpayers aren’t aware of that has been happening for years comes to
light. For some time now we have been reporting abortion-bound clients
and the death merchants have been reaching in our wallets to pay for
something we do not believe in or support, just from
alone. That is some nerve.
On numerous occasions in street-side counseling sessions
largest late-term abortion mill, Hope Clinic, many indigent women have
admitted to us their medical card was paying for their abortions. Not
just the earmarked 25% allotted through the government in cases of
rape, but the full price. We have come across clients
who brazenly admitted their late-term abortions were costly and their
medical card would cover it as long as they claimed the pregnancy was
a result of rape. All they had to do when filling out their forms was
place a mark in the box indicating they had been raped.
Taxpayers are footing the bills for immoral behavior. Now,
there may be some who don’t have a problem with this sham. I have
heard from taxpayers that they don’t mind paying for an abortion. It
would be better than having the government be the daddy for 18 years.
What most don’t realize is this is a broken cistern. Multiple
abortions, or as we call them “frequent flyers”,
are abusing the medical card to pay for their surgical birth-control.
These are just a few instances: February 2007- Hope Clinic told
Amelia, 24 weeks, they, “would need $1000 or her Medicaid
2007- At least two of the mothers this day responded to our offers of
free help with, “Oh that’s okay. I’ve got a medical
card, I’m good. Thank you anyways.” That takes some
nerve. These sinning-sinners tell
taxpayers to go to hell and mind our own business, then they reach
inside our wallets to pay for that bloody-business.
The abortion mill is not going to report this. All they care
about is the money. They don’t care how they get paid. Some of the
abortion clients not only pay cash, but their medical cards are being
billed too. It’s referred to as “double-billing”.
No one is watching or regulating this lucrative business. Not the
health department or the IRS. It’s another case of Big Brother
looking the other way while the fox is guarding the hen house.
If all these clients claim they were raped, why isn’t this
crime being reported and authorities investigating? Abortion mills are
the red-light district of health care. And that’s a stretch. The
following confirms our concerns we have been whistle-blowing for some

' Medicaid-funded abortions
This week, 83 U.S. House members called for
the HHS to look into a sudden hike in the number of abortions Medicaid

SOME 83 MEMBERS OF THE U.S. HOUSE ARE
PRESSING the Dept. of Health & Human Services (HHS) for an
investigation into whether the State of Illinois is abusing the
federal Medicaid program by seeking reimbursement for abortions which
fall outside the narrow limits of the Hyde Amendment.
Under the long-standing amendment first and
famously offered by the late Rep. Henry J. Hyde (R-IL), the federal
Medicaid program can subsidize only abortions necessary to save the
physical life of the mother or, in later iterations since the
regime, abortions to eliminate babies conceived during the commission
of a sex crime. Even with the rape/incest loophole, the number of
tax-funded Medicaid abortions is expected to be exceedingly scant and
has been minuscule.
Indeed, the number of Medicaid-reimbursed
abortions nationwide was 196 in 2006, reports Focus on the Family’s CitizenLink,
but in 2007, notes CitizenLink, “the number jumped to 458.
reported 84 federally funded abortions in cases of rape,” a number
which even then was high as a share of the nationwide funded death
toll. But in 2007, Medicaid reimbursement for abortions committed in
, allegedly limited as under the Hyde Amendment, “jumped to 363,”
reports CitizenLink, accounting for the entire nationwide
The Sept. 26 letter from the 83 Congressmen,
which seeks “detailed information regarding this increase” –
specifically the Illinois increase – is the second letter Members of
Congress have sent to HHS seeking such an investigation; the other was
sent in June by Representatives Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Bart Stupak
(D-MI), co-chairmen of the House Pro-Life Caucus. We publish the text
of the letter near the close of this Life Advocacy Briefing

Illinois issued the following statement this morning:
Congressmen, including Illinois Congressmen John Shimkus (R-19) and
Jerry Costello (D-12) sent a letter dated September 26, 2008, to U.S.
Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt asking for
information about the dramatic and sudden increase in Medicare and
Medicaid-funded abortions due to rape in
According to a document by the U.S. Health and Human Services
Department, the spike, entirely due to increased numbers in
alone, rose from 20 in FY2005 to 84 in FY2006 and 363 in FY2007. Other
states show no comparable increases.
The letter requested specific information about this puzzling and
alarming increase including whether the abortions were in a particular
region or facility in Illinois, if the criminal rapes were verified,
and, if unlawfully funded, were the funds recovered or are they in the
process of being recovered.
Concerned Women for America (CWA) of
stands with these honorable Congressmen in requesting this vital
information in light of the disturbing fact that sexual assault crimes
may be involved in these cases in our state.
