Federal employees' abortion coverage
DeLauro Amendment
07/15/1999
House Roll Call No. 301
106th Congress, 1st Session

Failed: 188-230 (see complete tally)
During consideration of the Fiscal Year 2000
appropriations bill for the Treasury Department and certain other federal
agencies (H.R. 2490), pro-abortion Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Ct.) offered an amendment to remove a provision that continued a ban on
coverage of abortions (except to save the life of the mother, or in cases of
rape or incest) under federal employees' health insurance plans. The federal
government provides, on average, 72% of the cost of federal employees' health plans. NRLC opposed the DeLauro Amendment, and it failed, 188-230, roll call no. 301 -- a pro-life win. July 15, 1999.
