  • Unless an abortion is medically necessary to preserve the mother's life, it should not be covered under an insurance policy.

    I'm pro-choice, but I don't think I should have to pay higher premiums for someone's poor choice.

  • It was already excluded in the bill.

    The republican amendment would have also extended to any private insurer who was part of the exchange which is why it was shut down

  • I'm pro-choice, but would rather pay for a woman's prenatal care than pay for her abortion. If she wants an abortion that is not medically necessary, she can pay for it herself.

  • i am pro-choice. they will give you a free abortion at planned parenthood .. probably because young girls will have their boyfriends punch them or kick them in the stomach to kill the baby, or use a wire hanger if theyre afraid to tell their parents, and want to get an abortion..
