Dem support grows for allowing public funds to pay for abortions
By Jessie Hellmann
Support is growing among Democrats in Congress for allowing abortion coverage in publicly funded health programs.
House Democrats, who say they have a “pro-choice majority” for the first time in history, are vowing to end a long-standing ban of abortion coverage in Medicaid called the Hyde Amendment.
They also want to ensure that future government health care plans mandate abortion coverage.
