Call on Obama administration to be transparent about abortion coverage

Several prolife groups are hosting a #betransparent Tweetfest tomorrow on Twitter to call attention to the fact that Obama Administration rules prevent people from knowing if the insurance plan they're about to sign up for through the health exchange covers abortion or not (if they can even sign up in the first place). Every plan that covers abortion forces an individual to pay separate money for an abortion surcharge.

Being forced to pay for abortion because of the secrecy of coverage is anti-choice., and, really, it’s also un-American. A new social media event seeks to highlight this and bring about change.

“Tell @Sebelius to #BeTransparent. Why won’t #Obamacare tell us which plans include #abortion?” says the sample tweet that is one of many for the Oct. 30 event, TweetFest: Tell Sebelius to #BeTransparent about Abortion Coverage in Obamacare, which takes place at a computer, tablet or smartphone nearest to you between 9 a.m. and noon next Wednesday.
