Attacks on Private Insurance Coverage of Abortion Care


All women should have access to abortion care regardless of their zip code, employer, or source of health insurance. However, some insurers are prohibited from including coverage of abortion services in their health plans. Unable to ban abortion outright, anti-choice politicians and activists have worked to make abortion inaccessible to as many women as possible by banning insurance coverage for the procedure. At the national level, anti-choice lawmakers have successfully enacted bans on coverage of abortion services in government health-care programs and they try relentlessly to expand these bans to the private insurance market. Although they have not succeeded in passing a nationwide ban on private abortion coverage, anti-choice politicians are undeterred, and have successfully imposed such laws on a number of states.

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