Monzel would limit abortion coverage

        Cincinnati City Councilman Chris Monzel wants the city to prohibit paying for employees' voluntary abortions through insurance coverage.

        The federal government, state of Ohio, Hamilton County and numerous local governments — including Delhi and Green townships — already have such a prohibition, the Republican councilman said.

        It is likely the ordinance Mr. Monzel plans to introduce Sept. 10 will pass with a five-vote majority.

        Mr. Monzel said his Republican colleagues on council — Pat DeWine and Phil Heimlich — would support it. Two Democrats — Mayor Charlie Luken and Councilman John Cranley — usually support anti-abortion measures.
