Sen. Pat RobertsPat RobertsHirshberg to Podesta: We don't really know anything about GMOs Mosul campaign Trump called 'total disaster' making gains, officials say GOP senators avoid Trump questions on rigged election MORE (Kan.) and 17 other Senate Republicans have proposed a bill that would require ObamaCare exchanges to make it clear which health insurance plans include abortion coverage.
The bill is a reaction to a GOP complaint that under the law, it's not necessarily which exchange plans cover abortion, making it difficult for pro-life people to choose plans that are free of abortion coverage.
"My bill further requires this information to be prominently disclosed so consumers can make informed, values-based decisions."
The Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act, S. 1848, would require exchanges to disclose which plans offer abortion coverage, and requires them to reveal when "abortion surcharges" are being assessed in plans to cover abortion costs.
The bill is similar to one proposed in October from Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.). Smith's bill allows a 90 day compliance period for health insurance exchanges, while Roberts' bill allows only 30 days.
