Nikki Haley Signed Into Law A Bill Barring Taxpayer Funded Abortion Except For When The Mother’s Life Is In Danger – No Specific Exceptions For Rape Or Incest.
According to Anderson Independent-Mail, “Gov. Nikki Haley signed two bills at the Carolina Pregnancy Center in Spartanburg on Thursday supporters say are aimed at protecting the rights of unborn babies and prevent taxpayers from paying for abortions under the Affordable Care Act… Haley said the Affordable Care Act Abortion Opt Out bill will protect state taxpayers and employees from paying for abortions, except when the mother’s life is in danger, when ‘Obamacare’ is fully implemented. According to The State newspaper, the state health plan has covered six abortions, all to save the life of the mother, since 2006. The opt-out law prohibits private insurance companies from covering abortion except by what is called a separate rider. Abortion insurance would be available for those who purchase it with a separate policy.” [Anderson Independent-Mail, 8/24/12]
