One of the major issues in the 2010 election was whether ObamaCare should be repealed. Specifically, there was a lot of national attention in the election paid to that section of ObamaCare which allows the federal funding of abortion. This is new.  Never before in American history have taxpayers, at the federal level, been compelled to pay for abortion in connection with their own health care.

The President issued an executive order saying that such funding must not occur; but, such an executive order has no final legal standing, and such funding of abortion is now legal in America. The White House is complicit in compelling Americans to pay for abortion.

The largest historical question is whether the newly elected Congress, which is overwhelmingly pro-life, will repeal ObamaCare, and in large measure because of the pro-abortion section. The man who is likely to be the new Speaker of the House, John Boehner, strongly opposes federal funding of abortion, and ObamaCare. It will be a remarkable 24 months in Congress for the pro life issue.
