Democrats’ ‘EACH Women Act’ would force federal taxpayer-funded abortion
Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) (pictured above with her baby) has announced that she will introduce the EACH Women Act (Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance) in the Senate, while Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) will be introducing the bill in the House. The EACH Women Act would overturn the Hyde Amendment, not only forcing federal taxpayers to fund abortion, but also banning legislators from working to prevent abortion from being covered by private insurance companies. The Hyde Amendment is estimated to have saved millions of lives.
The EACH Women Act would not just allow Medicaid to fund abortion; it would also cover every single federal health care program, including the Indian Health Services, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the Veterans Administration, and the Peace Corps. As Republicans continue to hold both the House and the Senate, the bill’s sponsors are aware that it will not pass. But they see it as an opportunity to tell the country where they stand and what they want to change — but will Americans support this kind of legislation?
