Inslee Calls For Up Or Down Vote On Abortion Payments From Insurers
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Speaking before a crowd of about 250 abortion-rights supporters, Gov. Jay Inslee has called for an up-or-down vote in the state Senate on a measure to require most insurers in the state to pay for abortions. Supporters say the bill would ensure continued coverage for abortions once federal health care reforms taking effect next year trigger bureaucratic hurdles for insurers paying for the procedure. Opponents say that abortion insurance coverage is already widespread and that the bill is unnecessary.
