Abortion In Obamacare


State Exchange Elective Abortion Opt-Out: Yes

Your state legislature has enacted a life-affirming law to ensure that elective abortion is not included in any of the plans sold on the exchange for your state. Texas passed a law in August 2017 to prohibit any qualified health plan offered through a health benefit exchange from providing elective abortion coverage.

However, taxpayers in your state are still paying federal taxes that are used to pay for coverage that includes elective abortion in other states. For example, an estimated 1.25 million Californians received federal taxpayer subsidies in 2014 and 96% of plans sold in California included abortion on demand. Between 2015 and 2024 an estimated $855 billion in federal subsidies will be used in every state to pay for Obamacare health plans, many of which include elective abortion.
