Sanchez Amendment
05/18/2000
House Roll Call No. 203
106th Congress, 2nd Session

Failed: 195-221 (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 May 18, 2000, pro-abortion Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Ca.) offered an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2001 Defense Authorization bill (H.R. 4205) 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 Sanchez Amendment failed, 195-221, roll call 203, May 18, 2000.
