No to Medicaid Expansion

CCV Action is joining forces with Ohio Pro-Life Action in asking you to contact Republicans in the House because the Medicaid expansion has been repackaged as a "pilot program".  This is called the House Modified Program but it is still a social welfare expansion.  Ohio Pro-Life Action lists their concerns with this extension below and we ask you to contact the House Representatives at the phone numbers listed and ask them to vote against this Medicaid expansion!

Federal Monies Attached to Anti-Life Policies

Ohio ProLife Action Statement on Ohio Participation in Federal Medicaid Expansion

Ohio Pro-Life Action is concerned that Ohio not accept federal monies which are attached to anti-life policies and regulations, nor encourage the federal government to incur greater debt to fund this expansion of federal control over Ohio citizens and their health care decisions.

Whereas, those states that participate in federal Medicaid expansion will be governed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) individual mandate requiring individuals to obtain insurance, thus legislating increased Medicaid recipients subject to the so-called HHS Mandate and entrenching Medicaid in these states as an arm of the federal government...

Whereas, Medicaid has covered for years, under states' limited discretion, the same measures that citizens are protesting in the HHS Mandate as a violation of conscience--surgical abortions (in Ohio in restricted cases),3 contraceptives, abortion-inducing drugs, and sterilizations...

Whereas, Medicaid expansion will expand these tax-funded practices to the underprivileged, which not only violate the conscience rights of many taxpayers, but are elective and medically unnecessary procedures and drugs...

Whereas, leading abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, is a recipient of Medicaid funding for so-called "family planning" measures, and funds for non-abortion procedures frees an abortion provider for its other programs....

Ohio ProLife action calls upon Governor John Kasich, the Ohio House of Representatives, and the Ohio State Senate to decline Ohio participation in federal Medicaid expansion and work instead for Medicaid reform for best use of taxpayer funds and essential medical care for the underprivileged.
