Missouri Offers State Employees Health Policies That Exclude Abortion, Contraception, Sterilization

As previously reported, last year a Missouri federal district court in Wieland v. HHS enjoined the federal government from enforcing the Affordable Care Act against a state legislator who, on religious grounds, objected to participating in a healthcare plan for himself, his wife and his daughters that provides coverage for contraceptives.  Now according to a press release from the Thomas More Society, the state of Missouri has begun to offer all state employees the option of selecting a health insurance plan that excludes coverage for abortion, contraceptives or sterilization.
