Virginia Governor Adds Abortion Coverage Restrictions to Fed Health Insurance Exchange

Furthering an anti-abortion push by Virginia Republicans, Gov. Bob McDonnell is seeking to ban abortion coverage by the state health insurance exchanges that are being created as part of the federal health care overhaul.

Over the weekend, McDonnell quietly amended a bill that outlined how Virginia would create a health exchange, adding a provision barring them from covering abortions except when the mother’s life is in danger or the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.”
