RI House Looks to Mandate Single-Mother Fertility Program
There are probably more than a couple reasons why this is just not a good idea:
Require health-insurance policies to cover infertility treatment regardless of a woman’s marital status. State law requires that insurers cover 80 percent of the cost of such treatments, with no limit on the total treatment cost. But they are currently required to offer that coverage only to married women.
Un-PC as it may be, can we agree that enabling anyone to have a child out of wedlock–for the sake of some ill-conceived notion of equality or fairness–is wrong-headed? Even setting aside the “culture war” aspects, why is it in the interest of the State to mandate such a thing?
