Urge Governor to Veto Abortion Insurance Mandate

Last week, the Washington State House of Representatives approved SB 6219, which would mandate abortion coverage in insurance plans in our state. The Catholic Bishops of Washington strongly oppose this bill because it would promote abortions while violating constitutionally-protected conscience rights. The legislation is now headed to Governor Inslee. The bishops will be asking the Governor to veto the bill. 

Please click here to contact the Governor’s office to urge his veto of SB 6219 or you may call and leave a message at 360-902-4111.The governor could act within a few days so please act quickly.  Thank you.
