Urge Senate to Act

U.S. Senators are urged to co-sponsor and support the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Acts. See: nchla.org/actiondisplay.asp?ID=310.

After the elections, the Senate will be in session starting November 12. Please use the attached Alert to urge people to contact their Senators now.

On September 15, the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) published a report identifying over a thousand health plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that cover elective abortions, many of which do not inform enrollees about the inclusion or cost of abortion coverage. These problems flow directly from defects in the ACA.

Earlier this year, the House combined two measures that would correct these problems, passing the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act (H.R. 7). In the Senate the measure was referred to committee.

The Senate must act. It should take up and pass H.R. 7, or pass the separate Senate bills, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (S. 946) and the Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act (S. 1848).

Thank you for all that you do to support life!
