Roberts nixes exchange plan abortion coverage s-little
Updated: 2014-01-13 16:06:51
To the editor:

The failings of Obamacare are painfully clear from loss of coverage to increased premiums, but the secrecy in the law raises serious moral and ethical issues.

Pro-life Americans oppose the use of their money to cover abortion services, but as current law is written, it is difficult to obtain information about which exchange plans provide such services.

I have introduced legislation, S. 1848, requiring this information to be prominently disclosed so consumers can make informed decisions. My bill also requires disclosure of the amount of the “abortion fee,” a surcharge required to develop a fund to pay for abortion on demand.

Kansans have a right to know what they are paying for so that they can choose an insurance plan that meets their needs, values and beliefs.

Pat Roberts, U.S. Senator, Kansas
