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?

Never Going Back.

American citizens live in a world of obscene privilege. We have access to things like clean water, indoor plumbing, limitless food, the iPad, and Starbucks all of which signify our status of wealth and luxury. Above the material items we commonly enjoy, there are other intangible privileges; most notable among them, are the rights guaranteed to us by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. We can speak freely, express ourselves, and pursue happiness to almost any end without having to topple a dictator. All of these rights share the purpose of honoring human life, autonomy and choice.                                  

Though brilliant in its conception, the Constitution, a well-weathered slip of hemp parchment paper stained with quill-applied ink that provides us these unerring rights, is constantly under attack. If you browse the news cycle of any period in American history, you would find thousands of stories that document the pruposed legislations that have sought to remove us from our rights. Most commonly endangered are the first amendment guaranteed rights to freedom of speech and expression. However, a quick browse through the news of today will be an introduction to the war against abortive services. While there is no such thing as a right to an abortion, we do have a fourteenth amendment guaranteed right to privacy, which allows us the use of abortive services thanks to 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v Wade. These rights were reaffirmed and further defined by the 2000 Supreme Court case Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey.
