Delaware Senate passes bill mandating insurance coverage for abortion

Delaware Lawmakers Vote to Mandate Insurance Coverage for Abortion

Delaware's Senate has passed a bill that would require private insurance companies and Medicaid to fund abortions in the state. The measure, which passed along party lines, covers a maximum benefit of $750 annually, which lawmakers say will cover the cost of an abortion pill. The bill also mandates that insurance providers cannot charge any co-pays, impose deductibles, or require any other kind of cost-sharing for abortion coverage.

The measure had opponents in the General Assembly, with one Republican senator arguing that taxpayers should not have to pay for abortions. The bill now heads to the desk of Democratic Governor John Carney for signature.

ProgressingAmerica: Delware lawmakers vote to stick it to taxpayers and kill babies. Here we go again. Progressives understand very well how to weaponize private industry outside of government to achieve their purpose. The historians must be stopped. They're destroying everything.

Amendment10: This may be a 1st Amendment religious expression/free speech protections issue applied to the states by the 14th Amendment (14A). Section 1 of the 14th Amendment states: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

riddenothesmiles: WATCH THE PRIVATE INSURERS LEAVE DELAWARE.....Trump supporters first need to support hopeful Trump 47 with a new, Constitution-respecting Congress, not only so that he will not be a lame duck president from the first day of his second term, but will also do their duty to protect citizens' rights from abuse by the states.
