It what could be seen as a next step in the inclusion of infertility treatments into Obamacare, A senate panel has recommended that this bill be passed. Senator Patty Murray (D Washington) is the lead legislator
Here is the comment that will set the tone.” We are not in the position to choose winners and losers based on the severity of injury”
The bill will expand coverage for Veterans to the full spectrum of advanced fertility services, including donor egg and Surrogacy.
Why should Veterans be part of a special subclass…..why not just cover everyone? (Can’t you just hear it now?)
So in addition to the Natural law argument, and the religious and ethical arguments that these procedures commodify the entire reproductive system, we now promise to make a baby for those who volunteer to put themselves into harms way and say to the American Population….that we have to pay for it as well.
I realize, and have always known, that these are very emotional subjects. But, objectively, where does the merry-go round stop?
Servant of God Jerome LeJeune, pray for us
St Anne, Pray for us
St Gianna, Pray for us!
