URGENT Action to OPPOSE Abortion Mandate

Legislation to require all private health insurers in Washington State to cover abortion services, if they offer maternity care, has again been introduced in the Legislature. The Catholic Church, believing in the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death, has consistently opposed abortion, and stands in strong opposition to HB 2148.

HB 2148 will be heard on Monday, January 13th at 1:30 p.m. in the House Health Care & Wellness Committee (House Hearing Room B - John L. O'Brien Building). ALL ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND THE HEARING AND TO WEAR WHITE RIBBONS!

HB 2148 violates the fundamental right to religious liberty guaranteed by the First Amendment of the Constitution. It does not offer a true exemption to employers who are morally opposed to abortion, nor to an employee or anyone who does not wish to pay premiums to cover abortion services.
