American taxpayers have been kept in the dark about the fact that they are silent partners in subsidizing the 225,000 abortions committed in nonprofit hospitals each year.

The funding mechanism that builds and maintains such nonprofit hospitals is the municipal bond market, which provides preferential treatment by granting tax-exempt status to state and local bonds. Consequently, federal tax monies are being used, indirectly to be sure, to subsidize abortions performed in hospitals. This is in direct contravention of the federal government's legislated policy not to subsidize abortions -- except when the life of the mother is endangered.
