    Arizona governor signs bill blocking abortion coverage through Obamacare

    Arizona governor signs bill blocking abortion coverage through Obamacare | Reuters

    (Reuters) - Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey signed a law on Monday that requires doctors to tell women that drug-induced abortions can be reversed and that blocks the purchase of insurance on the Obamacare health exchange that includes abortion coverage.


    Cue a federal court smackdown in 3....2....1.....

    what a waste of taxpayer $ this stunt is.

    Perhaps people don't want to pay for abortions? Why is that bad again?

    I agree that is an issue, but here we have legislation designed to pit a State decision against ACA as well as cloud the issue of abortion inducing drugs like Plan B. Federal exchange requirements have one set of conditions, this pits that against State wishes. Other States have tried this to varying degrees of failure, the article mentions Arizona which I thought was not worked out just yet but the article suggests otherwise.

    I do not think this effort was about the idea of tax dollars going to abortions, that was just what sounded nice at the mic. The real issue here is another in a long series of manufactured challenged to ACA. The party line vote suggest both motivations, but I suspect this is really about filling the courts with potential to hit ACA.

    It would be terribly unconstitutional for the state to discriminate against religious practice by forcing them to pay for what they consider murder.

    Lots of folks don't understand that, but usually it is just maliciousness, hate or some such silliness that drives them to want to harm the religious.

    ummm, this prevents women (not men, interestingly?) from buying the plan WITH THEIR OWN MONEY.

    It goes further than that. It means that paying taxes that are partially used for abortion would be ethically a break in American constitutional culture.

    that seems a leap that SCOTUS would pounce on, given that the Quakers never got their way

    And those who get their insurance through subsidy? (which is the point of Obamacare)

    I do not remember the case you are referring to.
