Medicaid cannot cover abortions. There is a law since 1976 that disallows it. It may cover it under Medicaid in cases of rape or incest but definitely not elective abortions. What the Obama health care plan says is that individuals who purchase insurance on the exchange will have abortion coverage. These are private insurance companies and they cover all legal procedures. Certain groups of people claim that indirectly the government is funding abortions by giving a subsidy to the individual to buy insurance which covers abortion.

Obama made an executive order ( which is not a law ) that federal funds cannot be used to pay for abortions.

Currently, federal Medicaid funding must cover abortion in cases of rape, incest, and life endangerment.

It only covers abortions in cases of rape or incest or the mother's health is in jeapordy. That's it. Not because you decided to screw around and not use protection.
