Indiana Right to Life launches Opt-Out Indiana campaign

June 18, 2010

In the wake of Louisiana becoming the fourth state to pass legislation to opt-out of abortion coverage in mandated state health care exchanges, Indiana Right to Life has announced Opt-Out Indiana, a statewide campaign to join other states in opting-out of abortion coverage in the state health exchanges required under the massive federal health care takeover passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama.

In addition to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s expected signing of the Louisiana bill, opt-out language has been signed into law in Arizona, Mississippi, and Tennessee and is awaiting action by the governor of Missouri. Governors in Oklahoma and Florida vetoed similar opt-out bills.

Under the federal takeover of health care, states are in charge of their own state health care exchanges for individuals and small businesses. We are moving proactively to address this issue by demanding legislation that will opt-out Indiana from abortion coverage.

It won’t solve all of the awful abortion provisions found in the federal bill – things like direct abortion funding through so-called “Community Health Centers” — but it’s what pro-life Hoosiers can do at the state level to respond to the federal plan.
