Washington Bill Forcing Abortion Insurance Coverage Defeated | LifeNews.com.

In Washington State, House Bill 2330 passed to the Senate and was caught up in debate with the realization that, as a violation of the Hyde Weldon Amendment, it could cost the state $6 billion a year in federal funding.   The bill would have required any insurance plan which provides maternity coverage to also provide abortion coverage.

Three Democrats bailed on the bill, and it was unable to pass by the Friday deadline.  The bill is now dead through this legislative session.
