SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

One of four abortion-related bills died in the legislative funnel this week.

House File 576 would have barred the state’s health-insurance exchange from providing coverage for abortions.

House File 87, which would prevent the state from giving any more money from the budget to abortion clinics, is still alive, along with House File 656, which would require notification of the state health department every time a judge permits a minor to get an abortion without parental notification.

The late-term abortion bill, House File 657, is also still alive and, if passed, would restrict the procedure after the 20th week of pregnancy.
