Bill would require women to buy an insurance rider for abortions

State representatives are discussing a bill that would require women to buy a special insurance rider for abortions.

The sponsor of the bill, Rep. Pete DeGraaf, R-Mulvane, said most people find abortions morally repugnant and don’t want their premiums paying for them.

Opponents of the bill say women don’t plan for unexpected pregnancies or fetal anomalies. Riders aren’t workable, they say.
