39. I'm not saying they *shouldn't* be covered, I'm simply
pointing out that elective ABs *aren't* covered currently & medical ABS are, and I'm questioning what these Dems are trying to prove.

And by the way, yes, I think they should be covered. If insurance can cover penile prostheses, Viagra, etc., then they should have to cover birth control pills and abortions as well.
