Abortion-Coverage Ban on the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program


Anti-choice lawmakers are consistently unsuccessful in their attempts to make abortion illegal again; an unfortunate consequence is that they try to make it impossible for women to obtain. Specifically, among other tactics, they use abortion-coverage bans to put the procedure financially out of reach for as many women as possible. Many of these bans prohibit insurance coverage of abortion services in government-run health-care programs. (For more information, please see the fact sheet Bans on Abortion Coverage in Government-Run Health-Care Programs). Federal employees are a prime target of this type of coverage ban because anti-choice legislators happen to have control over their private health insurance. Consequently, anti-choice members of Congress pass legislation every year that denies federal employees the opportunity to choose a private health plan that includes comprehensive coverage of reproductive-health services.

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
