Republicans Introduce Anti-Abortion Bill:
Formally known as the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017, HR 7 is essentially an extension of the Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal funds being used for an abortion . Ten states already prohibit insurers from covering an abortion, and another 15 prohibit it for Obamacare recipients, but this federal bill would eliminate all insurance funding for abortion. So even if you have private insurance through a non-religious company in a liberal part of the country, you still won't be allowed to get coverage. With Planned Parenthood estimating that an out-of-pocket, first-trimester abortion could top $1500, this bill combines insult with injury to American women.
