Why does Governor Cuomo’s bloated 168.2 Billion dollar budget proposal include seemingly unrelated pet projects?
One such peripheral mandates all health insurance plans cover abortion and abortion-causing birth control. Supporting budgetary documentation stresses, “…the Governor has taken action…to cover contraceptive drugs and devices and…abortion services without co-pays, coinsurance, or deductibles.”
The documentation demonstrates his almost worshipful devotion to abortion stating: “[he] will also continue to champion a constitutional amendment to codify these protections into the State constitution.” How could an elective medical procedure for women ever be construed as a general human right protected by the constitution?
More to the point, how is mandating that all New Yorkers pay for abortion with their private insurance premiums a budgetary issue? Can the State no longer afford to foot the bill for 49% of all NY’s abortions via Medicaid?
