$400 Or $6000? For Health Insurance Companies, Abortions Are Far Cheaper Than Live Births
In an article on the website of Forbes magazine, Baltimore Planned Parenthood CEO John Nugent said that a first trimester abortion costs somewhere in the neighborhood of "$300 to $450" and that this is much cheaper than the alternatives....
"But if the gestational age is higher you're paying for a surgical suite. That's why the insurance companies think they should be offering it. It's cheaper to terminate an unwanted pregnancy rather than taking it to term."
According to the Forbes article, the difference in cost between an abortion and a live birth can be absolutely huge....
"Health Care Blue Book confirms the price difference. An abortion performed in an physician's office typically costs $397. A vaginal delivery costs $5,992, while a c-section is $8,558."
400 dollars for an abortion vs. 6000 dollars for a live birth?
The truth is that health insurance companies not only have an incentive to offer abortion services - they also have an incentive to promote abortions.
The health care system in the United States has very little to do with what is best for the patient anymore. Today it is mostly about cutting costs and making the biggest profits possible for the health insurance companies.
We live in a society today where humans are looked at as disposable and where human life has very little value anymore.
In fact, there are many organizations who celebrate abortions and anything else that serves to reduce the human population. For these radical "environmentalists", human life is a virus that is destroying the earth and they believe that our "herd" needs to be "culled" for the good of the planet.
Increasingly there are calls for the United States and Canada to consider adopting a "one child" policy similar to the one that China uses. Children are not looked at as a great blessing anymore. Instead, children are looked at as a burden and are viewed as something to be avoided.
The truth is that health insurance companies are likely to increasingly promote abortions for their customers because it will mean big profits for them.
But in the meanwhile we are killing off future generations and we are offending the Living God.
Abortion is not a way to save money and it is not a way to "thin out" the population.
It is murder, and nothing is ever going to change that.
