Health expert warns of Democrat push for taxpayer-funded IUDs for young teens

The Obamacare contraception mandate was a major issue in the 2012 presidential campaign, and the left may soon be pushing for taxpayer-funded abortafacient drugs for young girls as part of the 2016 campaign strategy.

The issue appeared earlier this week in the New York Times’ “Room for Debate” blog. At issue is a growing debate arising out of Colorado.

“The most recent issue involves a pilot test in Colorado, where a private, charitable organization had paid for long-term birth control: implants and IUDs and other things for teenage girls. They found that dramatically reduced the incidents of pregnancy,” said Galen Institute President Grace-Marie Turner, who contributed to the “Room for Debate” dialogue.

She said activists in Colorado then decided to take the idea statewide on the taxpayers’ tab.

“The Colorado legislature then considered legislation for taxpayer funding for long-term birth control,” Turner said. “It was not able to get through the Colorado legislature … because of the issue of government-funded, taxpayer-funded contraception, particularly contraceptive devices that cause an early abortion, as an IUD does.”
