Does UnitedHealth Group really support Women's rights?

Although UHG offers insurance coverage for abortion to its clients, based on publicly available records, we estimate that in the 2016-20 election cycles, the company and its employee PAC have donated at least $8.5 million to politicians and political organizations working to weaken women’s access to abortion. This includes $120,000 in the 2020 election cycle to the sponsors of Texas SB 8 – which creates potential liability for organizations that insure in-state abortions after approximately six weeks of pregnancy - and more than $230,000 to the sponsors of restrictive abortion bills in 14 other states.
