CONSERVATIVES: Why are you opposed to abortions being coverage by insurance policies?

RNC Insurance Plan Covers Employees' Abortions

The RNC gets its coverage from Cigna, which offers clients the opportunity to opt out of the abortion coverage. The RNC chose not to do so, say Cigna employees. "No surprise," adds a Planned Parenthood official. “It’s an employer that wants to provide standard health benefits for its employees," she said. "That’s why the Stupak amendment goes too far in tak

  • I don't agree with taxpayer subsidized abortions. I don't have a problem with those that want to pay extra for insurance to do it or if they want to pay out of their pocket, but it is unfair to make others pay for an elective procedure. And just because the RNC opted to have it in their insurance plan doesn't mean that I agree with it.

  • I am completely against abortion therefore, I would not want the country or my taxes, especially to be supportive of something that I believe should be abolished.

  • Insurance shouldn't pay for one optional procedure (abortion) and not pay for all optional procedures (breast augmentation, lipo, other cosmetic surgery). If a woman wants to have an abortion she should pay for it.

  • I have a question...is this healthplan going to include paying for all fertility treatments?

    Why is it okay to kill a life, but try ot make one...and that costs too much money? If paying a little more in taxes went to fertility treatments for women, yup, i'm all for that.

    So, i guess you can figure out why i'm against abortion.

  • I am pro-choice but I can answer this question. It's fundamentally the inability to compromise and reason. Religion is the main staple that fuels the conservative outlook. When that's in place, little can probably ever get them to reverse that position.

  • A spokeswoman for the National Republican Congressional Committee – the campaign arm for the House Republicans – said it does not include coverage for elective abortions in its employee insurance policy.

    “The policy does not cover abortions unless the life of the mother is in danger,” the NRCC spokeswoman said.

    You shouldn't steal someones post Anon. And what is hilarious is you obviously forgot to look into it or you would have seen where the above quote was in the actual article.

    Also this was in the article you posted...

    "We are taking steps to address the issue," says an RNC spokeswoman, adding that the policy goes back to 1991
