About This Legislation:
The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (S. 184) is sponsored by Senator Roger Wicker (R-Ms.).  The bill would establish a permanent, government-wide prohibition on  federal subsidies for abortion and for health plans that cover abortion (with narrow exceptions).  This policy would apply both to longstanding federal programs and to the new programs created by the 2010 Obamacare law.  The bill also would close certain  loopholes that give tax-preferred status to abortion. The National Right to Life Committee strongly supports S. 184.  The House companion bill is H.R. 7, sponsored by Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ).
