Frankfort stirs abortion hornet's nest

Kentuckians who don't want to be forced to pay for abortions when paying health insurance premiums in 2014 need to let the Commonwealth's Department of Insurance know now.

Because ObamaCare assumes you are too stupid to demand health insurance benefits you want and need, states setting up health exchanges under the federal law must specify what health insurers will cover and what they will not.

The Department issued this statement:

"Currently, the Kentucky Department of Insurance is analyzing the various benefit options in order to make an informed recommendation that balances cost and benefits in the best interest of Kentuckians. The Commonwealth will recommend its choice of Essential Health Benefits to the Secretary of the HHS prior to September 30, 2012."

Kentuckians wishing to weigh in on what those benefits should be can send an email to DOI.RateReview@ky.gov.

All the more reason for dismantling this whole system of government control of health care. If you want to do that, click here.
