Blue Cross Blue Shield

Feministing posted a link to an article about the absurd behavior of Blue Cross Blue Shield. To summarize quickly: A woman and her family had insurance with BCBS, and they wouldn't cover her miscarriage because, according to them, it was an "elective abortion". Here's the link to the article: Blue Cross Blue Shield Calls Miscarriage "Elective Abortion", Denies Claim.

This is one of the many reasons America needs universal health care. I hope this gets a lot of attention in the mainstream media.
