H.R. 152: Appropriations for Sandy Disaster Relief

RECENT VOTES

Womenís Health Care

On January 28, 2014 the House considered H.R. 7, No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. This is another one of those bills with a misleading title. It clearly implies that federal funding is currently used for these purposes. That is, in fact, not the case. You may be familiar with the Hyde Amendment, which has been part of every federal budget since 1976. It prohibits federal funds from being used for abortions unless the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest or if the motherís life is in danger. H.R. 7 actually goes much further than the Hyde Amendment because it also restricts private insurance coverage. Small businesses will not be eligible to use the small business tax credits established by the Affordable Care Act if the health insurance they offer covers abortion. Also, women seeking insurance through the marketplaces will lose access to premium assistance tax credits if the plan they choose covers abortion. H.R. 7 is clearly designed to limit access for women. I voted NO. H.R. 7 passed and the entire vote is recorded below:
