HR 7 Taxpayer-Funded Abortions (Roll Call 65)
This bill prohibits federal funds, including funds in the District of Columbia budget, from being used for abortions and prohibits health insurance plans that include federal subsidies from coverage of abortions. Exceptions are made for rape, incest and the life of the mother. ACU believes abortion is a human tragedy, supports restrictions on the process and educating patients, and supported this bill. The House passed the bill on January 24, 2017 by a vote of 238-183.
