In consultation with the USCCB and other pro-life groups after yesterday’s announcement, it appears that a legislative remedy can be found to assure that the federally administered insurance exchange can exclude elective abortion coverage.
Access to health care remains a priority concern for Catholics, but no health insurance program should include coverage of abortion. Simply put, pregnancy is not a disease and elective abortion is not health care.
The PCC will continue to monitor the developments on this issue and will post updates as they are available. Please click here to send a message to your representatives in support of legislation that removes taxpayer funded abortions from health insurance exchanges.
