Albert Olszewski on Abortion

 

 


Defend unborn children without exception

I believe in the dignity and value of all human life from conception to natural death, without exception. I have authored original legislation to protect and defend unborn children. I have championed legislation to promote the welfare and safety of our elderly, our disabled, and our families. As your next senator, I will continue to fight for the weak and our most vulnerable.

All human life needs to be protected

I believe in the dignity and value of all human life from conception to natural death, without exception. I have authored original legislation to protect and defend unborn children. I have championed legislation to promote the welfare and safety of our elderly, our disabled, and our families. As your next senator, I will continue to fight for the weak and our most vulnerable.

Prohibit abortions after the fetus is 24 weeks

Among the bills proposed by Olszewski include Senate Bill 282, which was amended in the House and passed third reading in the Senate. It prohibits abortions after the fetus is 24 weeks and violations are a felony. He said the bill ensures that a woman in late pregnancy who has a life-threatening health condition that forces her to terminate her pregnancy does so with the safest medical procedures available and have the ability to save the life of the child and herself.

Voted YES that insurers have plans with and without abortion

Gov. Bullock rejected a bill by Sen.C.Smith that would have required health insurers that offer coverage plans that include elective abortions to also provide a reciprocal plan that does not cover elective abortions. Bullock said the proposal could leave women without coverage options necessary for unforeseen events. "SB 349 would create additional administrative burdens and costs for insurance companies," Bullock wrote.

Legislative Summary: An act requiring an issuer who offers health insurance coverage that includes elective abortion coverage to also sell health insurance coverage that does not include elective abortion coverage.

Governor's Veto Message: I stand firmly opposed to restrictions on a woman's ability to make deeply personal medical decisions in consultation with her medical provider, family members, and spiritual leaders.

Rep. Olszewski voted YEA on April 11, 2015; vote was 54-42-4
