"Currently, Medicaid dollars may only be used for abortion services in the cases of rape, incest, or life endangerment of the mother. This has the effect of creating more choice for those with greater means, and less choice for those without such means. Abortion is an emotional and difficult topic, but within the context of state policy, it is a medical procedure and should be treated as such. Therefore, New Hampshire should join the 17 states which currently cover abortion as part of Medicaid (in effect, eliminating the Hyde Amendment at the state level). This was most recently passed in Illinois and signed into law by Republican Governor Bruce Rauner. An example of the language (based again, in part, on the State of Washington) could look like this:
"If the state provides, directly or by contract, maternity care benefits, services, or information to women through any program administered or funded in whole or in part by the state, the state shall also provide women otherwise eligible for any such program with substantially equivalent benefits, services, or information to permit them to voluntarily terminate their pregnancies."
