National Right to Life Lauds HHS Exchange Program Integrity Final Rule

Dec 20, 2019 | 2019 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

The following statement can be attributed to Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

“With this final rule, the Trump Administration is enforcing rules that were implemented under the Obama Administration but never enforced. This rule will prevent taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for abortion coverage in Obamacare health insurance policies. We thank President Trump and Secretary Azar for their commitment to preventing taxpayer funding for abortion. We appreciate, as Secretary Azar put it, that ‘The separate billing requirement fulfills Congress’ intent and reflects President Trump’s strong commitment to preventing taxpayer funding of abortion coverage.’”
