If you want proof that President Obama’s Executive Order on taxpayer-funded abortion was a sham, look no further than Pennsylvania, says House Republican Leader John Boehner (Ohio).

“The fact that the high-risk pool insurance program in Pennsylvania will use federal taxpayer dollars to fund abortions is unconscionable,” Boehner said in a statement on Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., was not immediately available for comment, but I’ll have an update if she replies to my inquiry.
