Should Women Be Forced To Buy Abortion Insurance?

Last month, state legislators in Kansas passed legislation that would require women who want abortions to be covered by their health insurance to purchase supplemental “abortion insurance.” During the debate about the bill in the Kansas House of Representatives, Rep. Pete DeGraaf explained his support of the bill by saying, "We do need to plan ahead, don't we, in life?" He then added, "I have spare tire on my car. I also have life insurance, I have a lot of things that I plan ahead for."

For some reason, I don't think an unwanted pregnancy is anything like a flat tire. Also, if women already have health insurance, why are they having to get coverage for specific medical issues? That's like saying I have car insurance but I need to get insurance against theft as well as damage.

By DeGraaf's reasoning, we should require a supplement for every condition we think we might have or develop. Could you imagine the outcry if all of a sudden we had to buy cancer insurance? I really don't think that this would have been up for discussion if we weren't talking about abortion. It’s nothing but a slightly veiled attempt to complicate abortion laws, which make it more difficult to for women to get the help they need.

While this situation sucks, there is a bright spot. They didn’t make women buy rape insurance. If they did, dressing slutty would have to be considered a pre-existing condition. Can you imagine getting your claim denied because you were asking for it?

New Law In South Dakota Requires A 3-Day Waiting Period For Abortions - Quickie

A new bill signed into law by South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard on March 22, now requires a woman to get a counseling at a "pregnancy help center" and wait 72 hours after she is examined by a physician before she can get an abortion. His reasoning for signing the bill is, as he explains, "I think everyone agrees with the goal of reducing abortion by encouraging consideration of other alternatives. I hope that women who are considering an abortion will use this three-day period to make good choices." The ACLU in cooperation with Planned Parenthood have already mobilized to challenge the bills constitutionality.

This is one of 34 states that require a woman to receive counseling before she can receive an abortion and 25 of those require they wait a specified amount of time. However, it is interesting that a bill to require a 48 hour wait for a gun purchase was vetoed last year. In South Dakota, it is easier to buy a gun than have an abortion.

Moral Of The Story:

South Dakota, making abortions more awkward since 2011.

A Fetus To Testify Against Abortion - Quickie

For the first time in history a fetus will be allowed to submit testimony into open court. It will be testifying for an Ohio anti-abortion bill entitled the Heartbeat Bill. It seeks to criminalize abortions for any reason once the fetus has a detectable heartbeat. This can happen as early as 18 days after conception. Lynn Watchmann (R), the Ohio represenative who introduced the bill was quoted as saying, "It's really as simple as that. ... As technology improves in medicine, as it continually does, that protection will move closer and closer to conception, which is I think for many of us what our ultimate goal of protecting life is."

Moral of the Story:

Opponents of abortion will use any tactless tactic to win their fight, and are in this for the long game.

Telemedicine Abortions Under Attack - Quickie

For people who are geographically challenged, telemedicine has be a literal life saver. Doctors are able to meet with patients through Skype or other telepresence tech and diagnose maladies and prescribe the medication people need. This type of medical practice has been extended to women in need of early, RU-486 capable, abortions. Unfortunately for women in Iowa and Nebraska state legislators have announced plans to try to ban telemedicine abortions. Right now telemedicine abortions are only available in Iowa, but preemptive measures are being put in place in Nebraska.

Moral Of The Story:

If you live in Iowa or Nebraska, move... now.
