SB 245: California bill demands insurance companies bankroll free abortions–TANSTAAFL

TANSTAAFL—There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.

Once again, the Democrats are lying about finances and policy.  They have a bill SB 245 to mandate that insurance companies give away free abortions.  So who pays?  ALL the people that are insured by that company finance that company by buying policies.

Who benefits from the free abortions?  Planned Parenthood.  They would be able to raise their prices since the insurance companies will give away free baby killings.  Who loses?  The babies, the mothers and society.  Since 1972 tens of millions of babies have been killed by Planned Parenthood and others in the murder industry.  Of those, more than 70% have been babies of color.  Ina textbook that is called GENOCIDE.  Literally, the Democrats want premium payers to finance the killing of millions of babies.

“Senator Lena Gonzalez (D-Long Beach) is seeking to make all abortions in California free, whether paid for by private or public insurance. The proposal, called SB 245, will be heard in the Senate Health Committee next week.

The bill forces all private insurance policies to cover abortions with no co-pays and no deductibles, despite the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) determination that California was already breaking federal law by forcing private health insurance plans to include coverage for abortion.

Of course California is breaking the law—think the Catholic baby killer Newsom or Biden care?

California bill demands insurance companies bankroll free abortions

The measure would violate current federal law

SACRAMENTO – Senator Lena Gonzalez (D-Long Beach) is seeking to make all abortions in California free, whether paid for by private or public insurance. The proposal, called SB 245, will be heard in the Senate Health Committee next week.

The bill forces all private insurance policies to cover abortions with no co-pays and no deductibles, despite the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) determination that California was already breaking federal law by forcing private health insurance plans to include coverage for abortion.

Last December, HHS Secretary Alex Azar announced his department would withhold $200 million from California unless the state changed course.

Now with former California Attorney General Xavier Becerra now in charge of HHS, Senator Lena Gonzalez seeks to lift abortion rights to an even more exalted status in a state already known for being one of the most pro-abortion in the country.

“For over four decades, the American people have spoken loudly and clearly: the government should not force us to pay for abortions,” said California Family Council President Jonathan Keller.

“But with SB 245, Senator Lena Gonzalez would require millions of pro-life Californians to violate their consciences and fund abortion through their health insurance. In addition to violating federal laws like the Weldon Amendment, this proposal is deeply offensive to people of faith. We urge Sacramento to reject this radical and unconstitutional mandate.”

The Senate Education Committee plans to hold a hearing on SB 245 on Wednesday, April 7th.

  1. For those uneducated in the CP Agenda this is just one item on their list they have been able to unleash on America through their unrelenting success through the Democratic Party. Right now in America “the kill the babies” program with the “open boarders”, the constant attack on the “second amendment” and the obvious push against free speech with the “1st amendment” on going push. Wake up America they are definitely among us.
