The ACLU testified in support of legislation repealing two laws that attempted to impose unnecessary and undue burdens on women by limiting insurance coverage of abortion, but were also struck down by the courts. One of the laws would have required insurance companies to provide abortion coverage only as an optional rider, and at an additional cost to women. The other would have barred the state and municipalities from providing employees health insurance that covered abortion. In testimony, the RI ACLU called for these discriminatory laws to be fully repealed. Once again, the committee took no action and the bill died.
