OK, this is amusing. The GOP is against abortion and against insurance plans covering abortion - and the Republican National Committee has offered the coverage for almost two decades! If Politico hadn't reported on it, they probably never would have noticed.

The Republican National Committee will no longer offer employees an insurance plan that covers abortion after POLITICO reported Thursday that the anti-abortion RNC's policy has covered the procedure since 1991.

Federal Election Commission Records show the RNC purchases its insurance from Cigna, and two sales agents for the company said that the RNCís policy covers elective abortion.

As of Thursday, the RNCís plan covers elective abortion Ė a procedure the partyís own platform calls ďa fundamental assault on innocent human life.Ē

A never ending hypocrisy. This is why you can't just blindly follow any party. All lip service.
