Rep. Paul Wieland filed a personal lawsuit against the Federal Government stating, "I see abortion-inducing drugs as intrinsically evil, and I cannot in good conscience preach one thing to my kids and then just go with the flow on our insurance. In their lawsuit, Wieland and his wife are declaring that abortion is against their "religion." However, Wieland's State taxpayer paid health insurance carrier, does not require he have coverage for any "abortion-inducing drugs" making him out to be a liar, at least to the press, about why he is suing the Federal Government.
From his insurance carrier:
"Coverage for contraceptives either at no charge or at the same level of deductible, coinsurance or copayment as any other drug. Contraceptives are defined as prescription drugs and devices approved by the FDA for use as a contraceptive. Coverage is not required for drugs and devices that are intended to induce abortion."
~Missouri Consolidated Health Care Plan.
Rep. Paul Wieland, who has 3 daughters, told the press:
“I see abortion-inducing drugs as intrinsically evil, and I cannot in good conscience preach one thing to my kids and then just go with the flow on our insurance. This is a moral conundrum for me. Do I just cancel the coverage and put my family at risk? I don’t believe in what the government is doing."
~Rep. Paul Wieland (R)
Mrs. Paul Wieland told the press:
"As parents of three daughters, the Federal Government and MCHCP are denying us our ability to raise our children in accordance with our faith. We are role models to our daughters. Therefore my husband and I refuse to condone, whether through financial support or through access in our healthcare, abortion inducing drugs, sterilizations
I don't know why Rep. Paul Wieland and his wife are lying about what his Health insurance plan is mandating "abortion-inducing drugs" -- but they are lying.
