The Washington state Senate passed a bill Saturday mandating that insurance companies pay for abortions and contraceptive drugs and procedures for maternity care plans.
The state legislature passed Senate Bill 6219 in a 27 to 22 vote Saturday, according to KIRO7. The measure insists that any company who provides maternity care must also provide coverage for women who seek to abort.
