“Let’s keep protecting every Michigander’s fundamental freedom to make their own decision about their own body.” You know, except for the unborn human being. They don’t get a say about what happens to their body.
Pro-abortion Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer repealed a law that restricted health insurance coverage for abortions exactly ten years after she, as Senate minority leader, stood against the law.
“Ten years ago today, I was in the Michigan Senate, fighting against an unconscionable anti-choice bill that would have forced Michiganders to pay extra for insurance every month just in case they were raped or had an unwanted pregnancy,” Whitmer declared. “I shared my own story as a survivor of sexual assault and noted that any decision about a woman’s body ought to be hers alone. Exactly ten years later, I am proud to be repealing that same bill as governor.”
The law banned health insurance companies from including elective abortions as a standard feature.
The health insurance companies could offer it an insurance rider.
An insurance rider is a “provision that adds benefits to or amends the terms of a basic insurance policy.”
Seven health insurance companies in Michigan offered the add-on policy for small and large-group employer plans. It costs the “employers a penny and 32 cents a month per employee.”
In Whitmer’s speech ten years ago, she recounted how someone raped her in college. It did not end in a pregnancy. Only 5% of rapes of women of reproductive age lead to a pregnancy.
The vast majority of abortions do not have anything to do with rape or risks to the mother.
Despite those facts, Whitmer described it as “rape insurance.”
Now, those in Michigan could pay for abortion coverage even if they oppose it.
The bill is part of a nine-bill package protecting abortion in Michigan because, for some reason, the left is obsessed with doctors killing babies. (Remember, a lot of women who have abortions do not want to do it. They’re either forced or alone and think it’s the only way to go. Most are not ghouls like Gloria Steinem, who loves to shout her abortion.)
Whitmer has already proven she’s pro-abortion because she loves to demonize emergency pregnancy centers, which, God forbid, shows women that they are not alone and help is everywhere.
The pro-abortion governor called them “fake health clinics.”
Whitmer added: “I am proud that in just over 18 months, we have gone from the repeal of Roe v. Wade to expanding reproductive freedom in Michigan with the passage of Proposal 3 and the Reproductive Health Act. Let’s keep protecting every Michigander’s fundamental freedom to make their own decision about their own body.”
I guess the unborn human being doesn’t get a say in what happens to their body.DONATE
