Within the United States, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar announced the department will withhold $200 million in Medicaid funding from California due to the states requirement of state insurance companies providing abortion insurance coverage.
This act is illiberal because it forces insurance companies to provide abortion insurance. In a liberal society, if people needed abortion insurance, an insurance company would come into the economy to help that need. With imposing universal abortion coverage mandates on health insurance, the California government has taken the freedom from insurance companies on if they want to provide abortion insurance.
In any truly free society, abortion would be legal and anybody should be able to do it at their own risk. The state of California has a liberal mentality because it does not say somebody cannot have an abortion unlike other states. The irony of the liberal act of allowing abortions is the illiberal act of imposing health insurance companies to mandate universal abortion coverage.
