This law was last updated on Jun 29, 2016
HB 2294 would prohibit the state from providing benefits or services to permit a woman to voluntary terminate her pregnancy unless it was medically necessary.
“Medically necessary” would mean if the life of the woman seeking the abortion was in imminent danger due to a serious physical disorder, illness, or injury if the abortion was not performed.
The bill would prohibit the state from entering into contracts, distributing grants, or directing funds to any organization that provides elective abortions, or “receives consideration from or provides consideration to, directly or indirectly, any organization that provides elective abortions.”
