Stupak Amendment would restrict reproductive rights for poor, middle class women most


Of the 21 million people in the exchanges, 86 percent are expected to be receiving direct federal subsidies. It would be an oversimplification to say that this means 86 percent of women in the exchanges would be blocked from insurance coverage that includes abortion (it will almost certainly be more than that). But it is safe to say that the vast majority of, if not all, women in the exchanges will not be allowed to have abortion coverage in their benefits packages. These will be almost exclusively poor and middle-class women.
