Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, does not contain anti-mandate provisions with respect to abortion for qualified health benefits plans, nor does it prohibit other methods of mandating abortion coverage.
PPACA establishes “allocation accounts” to segregate federal funds from premium funds that can be used for abortion coverage.
PPACA requires the Director of the Office of Personnel Management to ensure that one multi-State plan does not cover elective abortion, while allowing all others to offer plans that do cover abortion.
Critics say bill puts politics ahead of women's health
Abortion-rights advocates allege the bill would allow hospitals that have a religious opposition to deny women the procedure even if the women's lives are at stake.
"They're calling it the Protect Life Act. We're calling it the Women Will Die Act," Sari Stevens, executive director of Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates, said.
President Obama has said he would veto the bill, claiming it "intrudes on women's reproductive freedom and access to health care and unnecessarily restricts the private insurance choices that women and their families have today."
