Today, U.S. Senator Ben Sasse applauded a new pro-life, pro-transparency rule from the Department of Health and Human Services. The rule says that insurance companies selling taxpayer-subsidized Obamacare plans that cover elective abortion must now collect a separate fee from policy holders for that abortion coverage. This rule brings insurance companies who had flaunted the law under the Obama Administration into compliance.

“This pro-life, pro-transparency rule is an important step in the right direction. Obamacare uses publicly-subsidized plans that cover abortion on demand. The Obama Administration hid the ball by letting insurance companies bury a legally required abortion surcharge in paperwork, but this new Trump Administration rule makes sure that the fee is out in the open. This is good news for Nebraskans who don’t want their tax dollars funding abortion businesses."
