A Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives had no trouble repealing Obama's proposed healthcare legislation. By a vote of 245-189, the House reversed the controversial health care form Obama signed into law last March.
The White House went into high gear with a media blitz trumpeting the voices of health reform and speaking out about how editorial boards across the country agree that repealing the Affordable Care Act is a bad idea.
Conservatives are pleased, but not quite pleased enough.
Now, some are calling on the House to take the next step and vote on a replacement bill that would offer legislation to protect the conscious of healthcare workers as it relates to abortion. The Susan B. Anthony List is among them.
"We must avail ourselves of every opportunity to protect American taxpayers from being complicit in abortion. The electorate sent this message loud and clear last November and, most notably, in districts were self-described pro-life Democrats who voted for health care were defeated. The Republican leadership is listening. That is the first step in righting a grave wrong," the SBA List said in a published statement.
"We urge the pro-life House to now vote for the replacement resolution that instructs committees to put forth legislation that, among other provisions, will provide sufficient statutory protection for the unborn and the conscience of health care workers."
On Thursday, the House is expected to vote on a motion instructing congressional committees to "report legislation including provisions that prohibit taxpayer funding of abortions and provide conscience protections for health care providers."
