Friday Five: Mary Harned, staff counsel of Americans United for Life
By Kim Trobee, editor More and more "little-known" provisions are being uncovered in the health care reform law. Mary Harned of Americans United for Life commented on five of those provisions for our Friday Five segment.

1. No Language Ensuring Abortions are Excluded
The new health care reform law only prohibits the use of certain funds to pay for abortions (the new affordability credits and cost-sharing reductions), leaving open the possibility that other authorized funds in the law will be used to pay for abortions.
2. The Law is Structured to Fund Abortion if Protections are Removed
If the Hyde Amendment is not renewed (it must be renewed annually), the new affordability credits and cost-sharing reductions created by health care reform may be used to directly fund abortion. The law was designed to be deconstructed that way. (The Hyde Amendment prohibits funds from the Department of Health and Human Services from paying for abortions.)

The Faith: What Christians Believe, Why they Believe it, and Why it Matters
The word "Christianity" conjures up many pictures, depending on who defines it. But Chuck Colson asserts that the faith "given once for all" is an invitation to a wonderful vision of life, open to all who will come. The Faith invites all who will - whether believers or skeptics - to explore the basic doctrines of Christianity and find out for themselves what it really means to be called a disciple of Christ - and how to live as a disciple.

"Cherish, therefore, the spirit of our people, and keep alive their attention. Do not be too severe upon their errors, but reclaim them by enlightening them. If once they become inattentive to the public affairs, you and I, and Congress, and Assemblies, Judges, and Governors, shall all become wolves."

— President Thomas Jefferson
