3. Just so you know, if you don't already -- Federal employee health plan does NOT cover abortion
It has not since July 20, 2001. Bill Clinton restored it after the Reagan/Bush I years. Bush II unrestored it and as far as I know, Obama has yet to restore it again.

So I would not be one bit surprised if any public option does not cover abortion. It certainly does not for federally employed women.
