Bill restricting abortion insurance gets initial nod in Texas Senate

Published on July 26, 2017 under CommunityImpact

Editor’s note: This story was updated to note that the Texas Senate gave final approval to Senate Bill 8. Texas women would have to pay a separate health insurance premium to get coverage for non-emergency abortions under a bill tentatively passed by the Texas Senate on Wednesday. State Sen. Brandon Creighton, the Conroe Republican who is the lead author of the bill, said opponents of abortion should not be forced to pay for the procedure through their insurance plans and employers should be able to choose whether to include abortions in their health coverage.Via Texas Tribune
