DETROIT, August 21, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The United Auto Workers union is demanding that car manufacturers insure their employees’ abortions and contraceptives—even if that means cutting down on bona fide health services. During contract negotiations this past month, the union boldly asked General Motors Corp., Chrysler Group, and possibly Ford Motor Co., to “expand benefits related to reproductive services,” and to cover “professional fees for elective pregnancy termination.” Later, the union said more openly that it wants companies to pay for “elective [sic] or voluntary [sic] abortions.” To date, 20 states have compelled insurers to pay for contraception. However, several states also have laws prohibiting coverage for abortion on demand. For local coverage: http://www.freep.com/money/autonews/uaw21_20030821.htm
