Federal - HR 18

No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion

Introduced

February 5, 2021

Description

The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 18) is sponsored by Representative Chris Smith (R-NJ).  The bill would establish a permanent, government-wide prohibition on federal subsidies for abortion and for health plans that cover abortion (with narrow exceptions).  This policy would apply both to longstanding federal programs and to the new programs created by the 2010 Obamacare law.  The bill also would close certain loopholes that give tax-preferred status to abortion.

National Right to Life Committee strongly supports H.R. 18.  The Senate companion bill is S. 92, sponsored by Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS).
