Virginia House Re-Prioritizes Title X MoneyBy Dave Andrusko
NRL News Today - February 8, 2017
No contracts to providers “that perform abortion”
One week after passage in a subcommittee, and five days after passage by the full House Committee on Health, Welfare and Institutions, the Virginia House of Representatives Tuesday overwhelmingly passed HB 2264 by a vote of 60-33.
HB 2264 “would prohibit the Virginia Department of Health from granting funds or entering into contracts with certain health care providers that perform abortion.”
“More specifically,” according to SaraRose Martin of Capital News Service, the bill “would cut off Title X funding for Planned Parenthood.”
Instead, the bill (in the words of sponsor Del. Ben Cline) “ensures that hospitals, federally qualified health clinics and rural health clinics are funded prior to abortion centers.”
