H.R. 6079, the Repeal of Obamacare Act, sponsored by pro-life House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), is a bill to repeal the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" (PPACA), the massive healthcare restructuring law that was enacted in March, 2010 (Public Law 111-148), now most often referred to as "Obamacare." As enacted, the PPACA contains multiple provisions that will, if fully implemented, result in government-imposed rationing of lifesaving medical care, which are documented here
. In addition, the PPACA also contains multiple provisions authorizing federal subsidies for abortion, and additional provisions on which future abortion-expanding regulatory mandates may be based. The abortion-subsidizing and abortion-expanding provisions of the law are thoroughly documented in materials posted on the NRLC website here
. For these reasons, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) strongly supports repeal of Obamacare, as explained in a letter sent to U.S. House members endorsing this repealer bill, posted here
. On July 11, 2012, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 6079 by a vote of 244 to 185. The repealer bill was supported by 239 Republicans and five Democrats. All 185 opponents of repeal were Democrats. House roll call no. 460, July 11, 2012.
