Legislature to consider abortion insurance
The Seattle Times reported that abortion rights groups will announce details at a news conference Sunday in Seattle.
Supporters include Rep. Eileen Cody of Seattle, who heads the House health care committee.
Dan Kennedy of the anti-abortion group Human Life of Washington said it will be vigorously opposed. It remains to be seen how the proposed legislation would be affected by the federal health care overhaul.
Washington voters approved the abortion right in 1991, passing an initiative that also requires insurance funded by the state to cover the medical procedure.
