The U.S. House of Representatives today adopted, 234-182, a pro-life amendment offered by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R- NC) and backed by the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC).(details here)
The amendment sets up conscience protections for “teaching health centers” (THCs) that receive certain federal funds for graduate medical education; it will prohibit any medical center that receives funds from the program from discriminating against any doctor, nurse, or other health care provider — for example, a medical resident — on grounds that the provider refused to “provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions;” and will prohibit the use of any federal funds in the program to provide abortions or training in abortion, with narrow exceptions.
