Default Texas Senate OKs requiring separate abortion insurance, even for rape and incest

Texas Senate OKs requiring separate abortion insurance, even for rape and incest - Chicago Tribune

Quote:
The Republican-controlled Texas Senate backed a plan Saturday night to restrict insurance coverage for abortions, over the objections of opponents who expressed concern it could force some women to make heart-wrenching choices because no exceptions will be made in cases of rape and incest.
Quote:
The 20-10 party-line vote for preliminary approval requires women to purchase extra insurance to cover abortions except amid medical emergencies. A final vote Sunday will see the measure clear the chamber, meaning it's now on a fast-track to Gov. Greg Abbott, who is expected to sign it into law.
nice

There goes private interprize

Lawmakers need to stop acting as if women are second-class citizens and quit making legislation targeting us. There's no legislation that targets men. This is unjust and shows that misogyny is still alive and well in many politicians, who are supposed to represent women as well as men. This is 2017, not the Dark Ages.
