HR 61 - The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act

H.R. 61 would require any entity receiving taxpayer funds through the federal Title X family planning program to certify in writing that it will not perform abortions and will not provide funds to any entity that performs abortions. The bill would allow funding to go to organizations that perform abortions only in cases where the mother’s life is in danger or where a pregnancy results from rape or incest.

The measure would deny Planned Parenthood and any other abortion providers a major source of their federal funding.
