Sadly, it seems Pennsylvania Insurance Commissioner Joel Ario thinks that killing the innocent pre-born - often in extremely painful ways - constitutes health care (“Following the rules on abortion, health care,” Letters, Monday). He also seems to think it is of no import if citizens who object to paying someone to do the killing try to stop both the killing and its funding.

Further, Mr. Ario does not seem to see the harm in President Obama telling everyone the funding is limited to rare cases in Obamacare, then trying secretly to fund it generally.

Hopefully, through our prayers and God’s grace, these public officials will eventually see and respect the humanity of the pre-born and stop funding and promoting abortion.
