|Urge Senators to Oppose Threat to Life
ESHB 1523 would require health plans in the state to cover the same “preventive services” required by the Affordable Care Act and all federal rules in effect on December 31, 2016. This includes contraceptives, some of which are abortifacients; that is, they cause abortions. This constitutes a direct threat to the life and dignity of the human person. Following passage in the House by a 70 to 28 margin, the bill was referred to the Senate Health Care Committee, which has scheduled a hearing on Tuesday, March 14, at 10:00 am.
