No on HB 1147 - Mandating Coverage for Fertility Treatments

HB 1147 would have started the process of mandating that all insurance policies cover treatment for infertility.

The Church appreciates the struggle some couples have with fertility. A bill like HB 1147, however, was not the answer.

HB 1147 would have mandated coverage for treatments that are not medically necessary, are morally illicit, and could threaten unborn human life. The bill contained no exemptions for employers or groups with religious or moral objections.
