Georgia to limit abortion coverage in employee plan

Special to SEGAZINE

Georgia will join seven other states that ban coverage of abortions in nearly all instances for those enrolled in the state employee health insurance plan.

The decision Thursday by the board of the Department of Community Health means the policy will bypass state lawmakers, who didn’t take action on similar legislation earlier this year. In a statement, Gov. Nathan Deal took credit for finding a way to accomplish what he called a worthy goal.

“Today’s vote by the Department of Community Health board shows our state’s commitment to reducing the number of abortions in our state by ensuring that state taxpayers aren’t paying for a procedure that many find morally objectionable,” Deal said.
