Why has the ACLU sued Kansas’ new health insurance law that won’t cover abortions except those truly needed to prevent the mother’s death?

It’s not because the law is unconstitutional or even novel– since similar laws have been operating in other states since 1979.

But abortion zealots cannot bear that abortion is viewed as so ethically unacceptable that employers and employees don’t want their health plans to pay for them.  Read this typical rant on the Ted Turner-funded pro-abortion website, RHrealitycheck:

“The only basis for viewing the decision of a woman not to carry every fetus to term as a “moral” or “ethical dilemma” is the unscientific lie that treats fetuses like people, rather than as a subordinate part of a woman’s body.

I encourage you to read both informative articles. On NRO online, Prof. New says no such body of evidence currently exists showing welfare spending lowers abortion rates. In the August edition of National Right to Life News, New similarly exposed the manipulations of a study by Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, which had a major impact on the debate over sanctity of life issues during the 2008 election.
