I am the pro-life generationAware of Obamacare and its legal requirements, a pro-life research organization reports the Affordable Care Act is breaking the law. 

Charlotte Lozier Institute spokesperson Genevieve Plaster, who lead the research, says more than one thousand health insurance plans were examined.

"And what we found," she reports, "was that there were eight companies who offer their individual and family health plans on the exchanges but they don't disclose whether their plans cover abortion or not."

Such disclosure is obviously important to people who object to abortion. But there's another reason, too: the Affordable Care Act requires that the information be disclosed to the public.

The policies in question are in Colorado, Illinois, New York, Texas and Massachusetts.

So a letter has been sent to Inspector General Daniel Levinson and Eric Hargan, Health and Human Services acting secretary, asking them to review Lazier's findings and contact the health care companies about the abortion disclosure notice.

"And bring them into compliance," Plaster says, "and basically make sure that their plan documents clearly state whether they cover abortion or not."
