SB 2808 would have amended Mississippi’s Federal Abortion Opt-Out Act (Mississippi Code § 41-41-40) to prohibit any exchange administered by the federal government under the Affordable Care Act from offering abortion coverage.

Current law prohibits a qualified health plan offered through an exchange created under the Affordable Care Act from offering abortion coverage, but provides an exception for when the life of the mother is endangered or when the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.
