"free" abortion mandate in the Affordable Care Act.
The Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) cannot include any coverage of abortion as part of the essential benefits
package required to be covered by health care plans. Section 1303(b)(1)(A)(i).
(ii) ABORTIONS FOR WHICH PUBLIC FUNDING IS ALLOWED.− The services described in this clause are abortions for which the expenditure of Federal funds appropriated for the Department of Health and Human Services is permitted, based on the law as in effect as of the date that is 6 months before the beginning of the plan year involved
Barack H. Obama, JD, 44th President of the United States, stated in his Mar. 21, 2010 Executive Order 13535, available at www.whitehouse.gov:
"Following the recent passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (‘the Act'), it is necessary to establish an adequate enforcement mechanism to ensure that Federal funds are not used for abortion services (except in cases of rape or incest, or when the life of the woman would be endangered), consistent with a longstanding Federal statutory restriction that is commonly known as the Hyde Amendment.

I have also been raped and had a family member sexually abuse me
