Orrin Hatch Will Introduce Abortion Restrictions In Senate Health Bill
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) told Politics Daily Tuesday that he plans to introduce an amendment to the Senate health care reform bill similar to the amendment by Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) that was attached to the House health care reform bill. When asked if his amendment would mirror the Stupak language, he said. "I think so, I think that's a fair appraisal."
Stupak's measure says people who buy insurance through the new government exchange, and use subsidies to help them do it, would not be allowed to buy a policy that covered abortion.
