Antiabortion groups are calling for legal action – and a possible cutoff of nearly $90 billion in federal funding to California – after Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration told insurance companies doing business in the state Friday that their policies had to cover all abortions.
But Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, called the state’s action “morally obscene” and said the universities should file religious-freedom suits. And other organizations that oppose abortion said California is violating an antiabortion provision of federal law and is at risk of losing much of its federal funding.
