RNC Insurance Plan Covered Abortions

One of the ideas behind the Democratic heath care reform plans is to allow all Americans to have the type of choice which members of Congress have. John Kerry’s health care plan explicitly called for this in 2004, and the current health care plan offers those in the individual market similar choices through the exchanges which are to be developed.

The Republican strategy on health care is to deny others they choices they have. Conservatives added an amendment which would greatly restrict insurance coverage of abortions. In contrast, Politico has found that the insurance plan offered to employees of the Republican National Committee has covered abortions.

The RNC has subsequently announced that they will drop this coverage after news came out about this on Thursday.

    This whole thing is so crazy.  There’s absolutely nothing wrong with abortion.

    There are reasons some might oppose abortion. If someone opposes it for any of these reasons they should not have an abortion. If the RNC opposes abortion they can leave that out of their insurance coverage. They should not attempt to rewrite health care legislation to impose their beliefs on others.
