An abortion premium in the Obamacare health care law received considerable attention during and after the debate on the controversial legislation.

With the presidential election in full swing, the pro-life Alliance Defense Fund legal group has a new video out explaining the premium and how it could funnel as much as $1 billion to the abortion industry.

“The Obama Administration’s radical healthcare mandate forces Americans to pay for health insurance coverage that funds the taking of innocent human life and other activities – even if doing so violates their sincerely held religious beliefs,” ADF explains. “Through ObamaCare, the government is attempting to coerce Americans to fund the abortion industry, and will financially punish American citizens who refuse to comply with its demands.”

“Did you know that ObamaCare includes plans that deduct an abortion premium directly from your paycheck to fund all types of elective abortions? And fines will be directly assessed when you file your tax returns if you refuse to comply with its mandates,” ADF continues. “The ObamaCare mandate is worse than you think. There’s a lot more they don’t want you to know.”

“Never in America’s 236-year history has there been a more serious assault on your religious freedom. The Alliance Defense Fund is on the front lines of the legal battle against ObamaCare – defending religious organizations and businesses that refuse to comply and abandon their faith,” ADF says. “Together, we must stop the ObamaCare mandate and stand up for our God-given freedom of conscience and religious liberty. Take action today.”
