21) The Romney Administration made sure that infertility treatments for homosexual “parents” were covered in his health care plan. As Romney has made clear, his universal health insurance plan is one of his crowning achievements – until recently. Now with raising premiums, increased costs and the public knowledge that his plan was the model for Obama Care, Romney has since downplayed the plan as his masterpiece. But what many people don’t know is that the plan covered infertility treatments with no restrictions on whether the person is single or married. Nor are homosexual couples prohibited from using these services.
During his 2008 presidential campaign Romney repeatedly used the phrase that “every child deserves a mother and a father,” but in the course of designing his health insurance reform bill, he made no effort to restrict infertility treatments to only male/female married couples. Of course, by illegally recognizing gay marriage as the law of the land a short time earlier, Romney created a legal environment which would have prohibited him from pursuing any such restrictions.
However, Romney could easily have left out infertility coverage all together. Indeed, in an effort to cut the cost of “RomneyCare”, Romney vetoed dental benefits due to its $75 million dollar price tag. But he never even tried to prohibit the far more expensive infertility treatments even though he knew by that time such treatments could be used by homosexual couples. In short, Romney’s insurance reform legislation forces every Massachusetts taxpayer to pay for a radical social policy which says that children can be born to anyone, regardless if there’s no mother or no marriage.
