article imageWashington bill would require health insurers to cover abortion

By Owen Weldon     Apr 2, 2013 in World
The Reproductive Parity Act, if passed, would have required almost all health insurers in Washington State to pay for elective abortions.
According to Jezebel, many thought that there was a good chance that the bill was going pass. The state of Washington is actually the only state in history to have legalized abortion through a popular vote, which is one of the reasons the bill was expected to pass.
According to Salon, many reproductive rights advocates believe that the bill was a way of keeping up with the state's pro-choice track record.
However, according to LifeSiteNews, the bill was not passed on Monday.
The defeat of the bill was a setback for the pro-abortion community in Washington. It is said that Planned Parenthood Votes Northwest and NARAL Pro-Choice Washington lobbied heavily for the bill.
