Abortions in military medical facilities
Meek Amendment
06/09/1999
House Roll Call No. 184
106th Congress, 1st Session

Failed: 203-225 (see complete tally)
In 1996, Congress enacted a ban on the performance of abortions at U.S.military medical facilities (except to save the life of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest), even if the direct costs were paid by the clients. On June 9, 1999, pro-abortion Rep. Carrie Meek (D-Fl.) offered an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2000 Defense Authorization bill (H.R. 1401) to repeal the pro-life policy, and thereby require military facilities to provide abortion on request to military personnel and dependents, with clients paying the direct costs. The Meek Amendment failed, 203-225, roll call 184.
