So what procedures are you talking about that medicare pays for now?
If you are talking about ABORTION, then have the courage of your convictions. However, my response to you will be exactly the same as my first post on this thread: abortion can be a life-saving procedure.
The bottom line for me is this: once you take away a woman's ability to have an abortion (even though I wish they didn't happen), you have a situation where the quacks are performing them in backrooms with coat hangers.
Do you really want that?
My post does involve abortion, but is not limited to it. I don't see Rowe V Wade as a moral issue, I see it as more of a public health issue. The problem my idea is attempting to put aside is there are things like abortion that people find highly undesirable. Making them pay for it will only cause outrage and an increased opposition to the bill. I'm pretty sure that abortions are not that expensive collectively, and enough people are pro choice that they would be picking up the tab. I don't think it would prevent abortions from happening, it would just make some people feel better about it that it isn't coming out of their pocket.
