  • Because ALOT of ELECTED procedures are not. An abortion is not medically needed in just about all cases so it is an Elected procedure. You dont get a boob job on insurence

  • I guess because it would make it all too easy for it to end up as a form of birth control to some women.

  • I agree with the first two posters. Elective procedures aren't covered unless they are deemed medically necessary.

  • Mrs.O: Good point althought I don't think I would compare the repercussions of an unwanted child (and its effects on the world and that child) to a boob job.

  • The only time I think it should be covered is in the case of a rape.

  • Read the Hyde Amendment. If an abortions goes beyond the definition of the Hyde Amendment, ~tax dollars cannot be used to fund.  If tax dollars have to be used to fund the new health care bill~ any abortions not covered per the Hyde Amendment should not be allowed.


    Why is that so hard for people to understand?
