'This Is Awesome!': Maine on Track to Ensure More Equitable Access to Abortion With New Insurance Rules

Jessica Corbett, staff writer

While GOP legislators in several states threaten reproductive rights nationwide with laws targeting Roe v. Wade, pro-choice advocates celebrated a victory Tuesday after Maine's Democrat-controlled Senate voted in favor of a bill that would require both the state's Medicaid program and private insurers to cover abortions by 2020.

This article came out the same day that Alabama legislators effectively voted to criminalize all abortions. This country really does need to split into two. The blue states can become a sane social democracy and the red states can be the theocracy they seem to want to be.

So…how far is it from Alabama to Maine?

Great, but how will folks working for “religious employers” be covered?

Welcome.

And your post was incoherent to me. I have no idea where you stand on the issues.

Complete thoughts in complete sentences would help.

Maine’s legislators disinguish themselves with this bill.

Now it’s time for its populace to throw out back-stabbing hypocrite Susan Collins.
