Does Medicaid cover abortions?

In general, Medicaid coverage for abortion is very limited.  In most states, Medicaid covers abortions only when the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest or if the woman’s life is endangered because federal law limits the use of federal funds to these circumstances.   However, 17 states do go beyond this limit and use state funds to cover other abortions.
