Abortions in military medical facilities
Harman Amendment
06/19/1997
House Roll Call No. 217
105th Congress, 1st Session

Failed: 196-224 (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. Pro-abortion Rep. Jane Harman (D-Ca.) offered an amendment to the Fiscal Year 1998 Defense Authorization bill (HR 1119) 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 Harman Amendment failed, 196-224, House roll call no. 217, June 19, 1997.
