Supporters of the ‘Reproductive Parity Act’ fear forthcoming Obamacare changes may cause some insurance carriers to drop abortion coverage.
The act requires carriers to pay for abortions if they offer maternity coverage as part of their plans.
Backers of the act say its legislation is misunderstood by opponents.
Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest CEO, Elaine Rose says the ‘Reproductive Parity Act’ gives carriers the appropriate information they need to navigate the playing field of Obamacare.
She also says the act will ensure women have the same access to healthcare and reproductive coverage they’ve always had in Washington.
