About This Legislation:
The "EACH Woman Act" (H.R. 771), sponsored by Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-Ca.) and opposed by National Right to Life, would mandate coverage of abortion without limitation in Medicaid, Medicare, CHIP, and other federally funded health insurance programs.  (An array of federal laws currently restrict such coverage in some, but not all, federally subsidized health programs.)  In addition, the bill would nullify the laws in effect in about half of the states that restrict coverage of abortion in health plans sold on the Obamacare exchanges, and all other state laws or policies that "inhibit insurance coverage of abortion by private health plans."
