France to Subsidize Abortions

Government will cover 100 percent of the costs

|

France's épreuve socialiste continues under Paul Krugman Fan Club charter member François Hollande:

France on Monday unveiled a package of reforms designed to increase access to abortion, including 100 percent reimbursement of medical costs by the state social security system.

At present French women are only able to claim back between 70 and 80 percent of the costs, which average between 200 and 450 euros depending on whether the abortion is induced by medication taken at home or carried out by surgical procedure in a clinic.

Imagine the indignity of having to pay a full 20% for your abortion. Let the tortured wails about male patriarchy rise up through the rafters.
