What makes a woman use her insurance to pay for a termination of pregnancy?

Should she try to hide any remembrance of it.

  • Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The chances are good that your health insurance plan covers elective abortions since 46 percent of all health insurance plans in the United States do so.

  • To some it's just a medical procedure. Just like if I fall and break my leg. Insurance pays for it. If they feel that they should hide, it then they feel it's wrong to have an abortion in the first place.

  • Currently, five states (Idaho, Kentucky, Missouri, North Dakota and Oklahoma) restrict private insurance coverage for abortions except in the case of rape, incest or to save the mother’s life.

  • More than ever, health insurance companies are viewing abortions as a way to cut costs. Why? Because as one local Planned Parenthood official recently admitted, abortions are much cheaper than live births. That is a huge reason why so many health insurance companies have become increasingly comfortable with covering abortions.

  • I'm not for abortion at all, but this is a silly question. Why wouldn't she use her insurance? She has insurance to help her pay for her medical expenses. Why would she go the privat pay route if she has insurance?

  • "Health Care Blue Book confirms the price difference. An abortion performed in an physician's office typically costs $397. A vaginal delivery costs $5,992, while a c-section is $8,558."

    400 dollars for an abortion vs. 6000 dollars for a live birth?

    The truth is that health insurance companies not only have an incentive to offer abortion services - they also have an incentive to promote abortions.
