Obamacare doesn’t designate any federal funding for abortion coverage ~ what is so hard to understand about this? 300,000 people in Ohio have no medical care, which they deserve along with every other citizen of the US. Religious beliefs overriding the needs of the poor ~

If they were truly "pro-life," they would not stand in the way of people getting LIFE-saving health coverage.

Oh right, because life begins at conception and ends at birth...otherwise they would be glad that the 12,000 babies that die unnecessarily because of lack of healthcare would live. 12,000 lives of babies saved annually!

These banana-brains need to get a life and stop trying to control everyone else's... Can we countersue them for not having any decency?

Noted. Just burns me up, too! Although it's hard to believe that Kasich finally did the right thing, my own Gov. Brewer, (yeah, the one who shook her finger in Pres. Obama's face), told our GOP-majority legislature that she would not sign any bills....NOT ONE....until they presented her with a bill to provide the ACA here in AZ. It was a bit of a standoff, but the legislature DID cave & send her that bill. She stuck to her words....left me quite surprised, but very happy. So, Republican governors CAN find their conscience....or, whatever it takes, and stand firm.

These people! Ugh. I would like to take down each of their names. Then when women are forced to have children they can't take care of these concerned folks can pony up the funds to feed, clothe, and educate their children.
I swear they are not pro-choice they are anti-woman!!

Thank You

The question shouldn't be whether you agree with the result but the process taken to achieve it. If the committee has taken unauthorized steps, it could be used in the future to pass something you don't agree with.

Here we go again is there no end foolishness of the GOP and their allies.These people call themselves pro lifers how can this be when they are hell bent on condemning millions of their fellow Americans to a life of misery and early death because they are so poor they cannot afford the absorbent medical fees? .I think the title of pro lifer should be dropped and substituted for the monster raving loony party" it's more appropriate than pro lifer.

Most of the time pro-life just seems to mean no abortion. They don't really care about other lives being lost as long as it is not related to abortion. Children dying from hunger or abuse, Genocide in other countries, gun shootings in school, making life better for anyone, etc, don't seem to concern pro-lifers.

Why is it that "pro-lifers" ONLY care about the UN-born? I should say "pretend to care", because they really don't want maternity pre-natal care of any kind either.

Outrageous! Those Pro-lifers should be more concerned about all those little unwanted babies after they are born. Nobody cares how those women and their children should survive.

Shameful. The pro-life groups shouldn't deny others the opportunity to choose.

Can you imagine anything more reprehensible, evil, cruel and ignorant as that? Don't you get sick and tired of idiots forcing their personal beliefs onto others? And especially in this instance? Despicable SOB's.

Arielle S., why do you insult the poor innocent bananas? I'm quite sure that bananas are light-years ahead of these idiots as far as intelligence goes!

Stars to just about everyone - I do so agree - and John S has a very good point - if things can be passed in such a way - what else can be passed behind closed doors? Be aware!!
