Reproductive Parity bill passes

OLYMPIA — On a mostly party-line vote, the House passed the Reproductive Parity Act, sending it to the Senate on a 53-43 vote.

Both sides argued that they were defending “choice.” Supporters said women should have medical insurance that allows them to choose abortion, regardless of their employer's religious believes.

Opponents said women who oppose abortion should be able to choose a medical plan that does not pay for abortions.
