October 1 marked the opening of the state health care exchanges...and new abortion funding through them. In March of 2011, I tried to get Congresswoman to oppose Obamacare and provided documents from the USCCB Legal Counsel on how Obamacare funded abortions. 

However, she responded:

“the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act provides no federal financing for abortions.” 

To which, I responded:

“...the Bishops have stated that this bill funds abortions.” 

To which, she responded: 

“I disagree with you that H.R. 3590 provides federal financing for abortions.”

(Read the whole conversation  here.)

And now we know:

Obama administration: Lawmakers, staff can get abortion coverage. - Washington Times, September 30, 2013

One in ten abortions will funded through Obamacare mandated subsidies - Charlotte Lozier Institute

“ACA (Obamacare) allows use of federal funds to pay for elective abortions and for plans that cover such abortions, contradicting longstanding federal policy.” - USCCB, June 28, 2012

"...contrary to the policy of the Hyde amendment and regardless of what it may provide in any year, federal subsidies (in the form of such premium tax credits) may be used to help pay for overall health plans whose issuers have decided to include elective abortions." - USCCB, May 24, 2010
