Bill Sponsorship: No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act
Source: H.R.3 &S.906
    TITLE I: Prohibiting Federally-Funded Abortions and Providing for Conscience Protections
  • Prohibits federal funds from being used for any health benefits coverage that includes coverage of abortion. (Currently, federal funds cannot be used for abortion services and plans receiving federal funds must keep federal funds segregated from any funds for abortion services.)
  • Excludes from such prohibitions an abortion if: the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest; or the woman would be place in danger of death unless an abortion is performed.
    TITLE II: Elimination of Certain Tax Benefits Relating to Abortion
  • Disqualifies, for purposes of the tax deduction for medical expenses, any amounts paid for an abortion.
  • Excludes from the definition of "qualified health plan" after 2013, for purposes of the refundable tax credit for premium assistance for such plans, any plan that includes coverage for abortion.

Also see the related House of Representatives bill HR0003.
