New York, Governor Cuomo wants to force insurance to pay for abortion until birth!
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo wants to require all commercial health insurance policies to include coverage for any abortion service for all nine months of pregnancy, up until birth!
In an opinion piece published by CNN, Governor Cuomo stated that New York “will ensure that contraceptive drugs and devices are covered by commercial health insurance policies without co-pays, coinsurance or deductibles; that contraceptives are available in amounts exceeding one month's supply at a time; and that all medically necessary abortion services are covered by commercial health insurance policies without co-pays, coinsurance or deductibles.” (The term “medically necessary” has historically been used by liberals to include all abortions desired by the mother.)
This broad expanse of abortion in New York State must not be allowed. Please stand up to Governor Cuomo and tell him that we will not be forced to pay for abortions!
Governor Cuomo claims that to be pro-woman is to be pro-abortion. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Abortion isn’t about supporting women and giving women options –it’s about making life for some more convenient at the expense of millions of lives every year.
As a former abortion advocate, now pro-life supporter Frederica Mathewes-Green has eloquently written, “once abortion becomes available, it becomes the most attractive option for everyone around the pregnant woman. If she has an abortion, it’s like the pregnancy never existed. No one is inconvenienced. It doesn’t cause trouble for the father of the baby, or her boss, or the person in charge of her college scholarship. It won’t embarrass her mom and dad.”
“Abortion is like a funnel; it promises to solve all the problems at once.” But it doesn’t. And for the woman, it is utterly devastating.
We know that all abortions end at least one human life, and they often seriously damage the mother’s life, as well. As Christians and life-loving Americans, we must work constantly to change our culture—to both respect the value of the unborn, and to cultivate honor and support for pregnant mothers.
Life is precious, and it can often require sacrifice. We must work every day to convince our neighbors that that sacrifice is worth it. And we should stand up against abortion advocates like Governor Cuomo that try to claim that all real women must support abortion. Wrong! Real women support the lives of all girls and boys in this country, whether in the womb or outside as infants, toddlers, or children.
