Washington State Considering Abortion Coverage Insurance Mandate

An so it begins. A bill proposed by the Washington State legislature would require all insurance plans that cover maternity care to also cover abortions. The silver lining (if there is one) is an opt-out option for people morally opposed  to abortion.


The state is looking to set new precedent: It could soon become the first state to require all health plans to cover abortion.

House Bill 2330 would require all health plans that offer maternity care to also provide coverage for terminating a pregnancy, with a conscience exemption for those that may have a religious objection to such coverage.

The law, currently pending in the Washington State Senate, would kick in this summer.

Think ObamaCare doesn't fund abortion? Think again.

The legislation grew out of concerns over the structure of the federal health reform law. In order to ensure no federal funds get spent on abortion, the Affordable Care Act set up special accounting rules for insurance plans that cover the procedure and receive federal insurance subsidies.

Or in other words, the plans with abortion coverage, still receive federal subsidies a.k.a. taxpayer money.
