Full Bill Text

SB 388 would prohibit an agency of the state from contracting with or making a grant to abortion educators.

The bill defines “abortion educators” to mean any of the following entities engaged in training individuals to perform abortions or supervising individuals in the performance of abortions:

  • A medical school;
  • A nursing school;
  • A teaching hospital;
  • An individual employed by any such entity as an educator of medical school students, students enrolled in advanced practice nursing programs, or medical school graduates completing medical residency programs.
 Additionally, an appropriation to pay for a contract with or a grant made to an entity to an abortion educator would be canceled.

If any contract or grant is made to an abortion educator, the budget agency would need to make a determination that funds are not available, and terminate the contract or grant.
