Commentary

This bill  seeks to accomplish three goals:

  1. Make the Hyde Amendment and other current abortion funding prohibitions  permanent.
  2. Ensure that the Affordable Care Act faithfully conforms with the Hyde Amendment as promised by the President.
  3. Provide full disclosure, transparency and the prominent display of the extent to which any health insurance plan on the exchange funds abortion.
