Democrats Now Want Health Insurers Required to Pay for Abortions

Fresh on the heels of ramming homosexual marriage off on the people of Washington State, we read where Democrats in the House have passed HB2330, “Concerning health plan coverage for the voluntary termination of a pregnancy.” The bill digest describes the intent of the bill as, “Requires a health plan that provides coverage for maternity care or services to also provide a covered person with substantially equivalent coverage to permit the voluntary termination of a pregnancy.”

According to the Seattle Times, “Starting in 2014, most individual and small group health care plans will under federal law be required to cover a set of medical conditions, among them pregnancy. Exempted under the bill are multistate plans, which are not subject to state law, and religiously sponsored plans.”

The bill states, “If a health plan issued or renewed on or after the effective date of this section provides coverage for maternity care or services, the health plan must also provide a covered person with substantially equivalent coverage to permit the voluntary termination of a pregnancy.”

There are the usual supposed exceptions, but how long before even they are done away with?
