Ok, I could be way off on this, but I think the issue is not whether or not to fund abortions but that proponents of abortion are concerned that
opponents of abortion could find ways to contend that options that are currently available may be rendered illegal due to new rules imposed by the
legislation. For example, if part of the makeover results in some funding to Planned Parenthood, let's say for covering mammograms or birth control
pills, then the concern is that because Planned Parenthood receives that funding they would now be prevented legally from also providing abortion
In addition, there is concern that such organizations would not be permitted to opt out of the government funding and therefore would be unable to
continue their mission. That concern is because of the bank situation where banks were bailed out that did not want or need the bailouts.
