New Poll: Will H.R. 3 (Funding for Abortion) Pass?
Summary from Open Congress:
This bill would expand the existing Hyde amendment restrictions on the use of federal funds for abortions by prohibiting even indirect funding streams that may potentially come in contact with abortion services. For example, it would deny tax credits to companies that offer health plans that cover abortions and it would block anybody with insurance that covers abortions from receiving federal subsidies, even if the abortion portion is paid separately with personal funds. As currently written, it would also redefine rape for the purpose of exempting resulting abortions from the federal funding restrictions as “forcible rape.” It would also limit the incest exemption to cases where the women is a minor.
Sponsored by Christopher Smith (R-NJ), the bill was introduced on January 20, 2011 and currently has 173 co-sponsors.
