Federal – HR 369
Defund Planned Parenthood Act                                                             
January 9, 2019

H.R. 369, the “Defund Planned Parenthood Act,” sponsored by Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R-Mo.), would prohibit any federal funds from going to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), or any PPFA affiliate, for a period of one year from the date of enactment, except upon certification that no abortions will be performed by these entities (except when necessary to prevent the death of the mother, or in cases or rape or incest). The bill would redirect the funds to Community Health Centers (CHCs), and authorizes an additonal $235 million for CHCs. NRLC strongly supports this legislation.
