With the votes held by Rep. Bart Stupak and his pro-life group of Democrat Representatives standing in the way of the passage of the Senate Health Care Reform bill in the House, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius took to the Sunday talk shows to make the push for the bill.

On Meet the Press, the Secretary said the following in response to host David Gregory’s question as to whether Stupak was misinformed in his belief that the Senate Bill allowed for Federal dollars to be spent on abortion:

“There is no Federal money paying for abortion.”

On page 2355 of The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act passed by the Senate there is provision for direct funding of Community Health Centers without going through the normal process of the annual Health and Human Services appropriation. This would exempt it from the restrictions of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits Federal funds from being spent to provide abortions.

Is Sebelius misinformed or intentionally misinforming the public?
