A report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that the U.S. abortion rate is lower than ever. The CDC has been tracking the abortion rate since 1976, according to the report's lead author, Sally Curtin. She said, "Abortion has been on a nearly steady decline since the rate peaked in 1980." Sadly, there is more to it than that. The report does not take into account things like the "Plan B" pill and the birth control pill, both of which can cause an abortion.

Why employ a supposedly clever move in the House Ways and Means Committee to repeal the ObamaCare healthcare law, as opposed to submitting a stand-alone bill for repeal? Why pass legislation that addresses only part of the problem and then attach it to other legislation? Why not use popular support to force a Senate vote on repealing ObamaCare? The American people are fed up with ObamaCare and want it repealed in its entirety.
