The Hyde Amendment prohibits insurance coverage for abortion services in government health-care programs, including Medicaid. Long story short? This means that low-income women, who are disproportionately women of color, can’t count on their insurance to cover their medical expenses. That’s discrimination, plain and simple.
Right now, whether or not a woman can have an abortion when she needs it depends on where she works, how much she makes, and what kind of insurance she has.
