There has been a great amount of discussion concerning abortion and current health care legislation. Is it in? Is it out? First of all, the entire concept of the fed’s involvement in health care is unconstitutional, but that seems not to matter. So here’s info on the abortion language for readers.

Planned Parenthood has been a part of Abby Johnson’s life for the past eight years; that is until last month, when Abby resigned. Johnson said she realized she wanted to leave, after watching an ultrasound of an abortion procedure.
“I just thought I can’t do this anymore, and it was just like a flash that hit me and I thought that’s it,” said Jonhson.
