LDS: Excommunication for Harry Reid?

"...The official statement from the Mormon church (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) regarding abortion is as follows: "In today's society, abortion has become a common practice, defended by deceptive arguments. Latter-day prophets have denounced abortion, referring to the Lord's declaration, "Thou shalt not . . . kill, nor do anything like unto it" (D&C 59:6). Their counsel on the matter is clear: Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints must not submit to, perform, encourage, pay for, or arrange for an abortion. Church members who encourage an abortion in any way may be subject to Church discipline..." (source)

Where does this leave "supposedly" pro-life Harry Reid with provisions for tax payer funded abortion in his new health care bill? It looks like the Church of the Latter Day Saints must stand by their words/teachings and excommunicate Harry Reid. If "abortion" is a reason...what is providing a free abortion for the entire female population of America?
