Senate Bill 434, called the "Federal Abortion Mandate Opt-Out Act," was filed by Marietta Sen. Judson Hill. It would block qualified health plans from providing abortion coverage as allowed by federal law unless the life of the mother is endangered.

Senate Bill 438 was filed by Newnan Sen. Mike Crane. It would ban state employee health insurance plans from offering coverage for abortion services.
