Title

No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015

Official Title

A bill to prohibit taxpayer funded abortions.

Summary

No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015 This bill prohibits federal funds, including funds in the budget of the District of Columbia, from being expended for abortion or health coverage that includes coverage of abortion. Abortions are eligible for federal funding only in cases of rape or incest, or where a physical condition endangers a woman's life unless an abortion is performed. Currently, federal funding of abortion and health coverage that includes abortion is prohibited, with the same exceptions. Health care provided in a federal health care facility or by a federal employee may not include abortions that are ineligible for federal funding. This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to disallow premium assistance tax credits or health insurance tax credits for qualified health plans that cover abortions ineligible for federal funding. This bill amends the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act to require the Office of Personnel Management to ensure that multi-state qualified health plans offered on health insurance exchanges do not cover abortions ineligible for federal funding. A qualified health plan's coverage of abortion must be disclosed to enrollees at the time of enrollment and must be prominently displayed in marketing materials, comparison tools, or any summary of benefits and coverage made available by the plan issuer, a health insurance exchange, or the Department of Health and Human Services. The amount of a plan's premium that is attributable to coverage of abortions ineligible for federal funding must be disclosed in material where the premium is disclosed.

    This penalizes women who can't afford abortions. Also, those babies may end up in the system which will cost more money in the long run.

    The Hyde amendment already prohibits the use of tax payer money to pay for abortion.

    Preventing anyone from having access to an abortion is a bad thing. Instead we should make it easier to access one. Also those that are likely to get an abortions are those that can not afford to have a new child. Also those who are on Medicare are among the most vulnerable in our population

    That's just ridiculous! Would taxpayers rather pay for a child in the foster system or welfare and medical for the next 18 years instead? People make a smart choice even if your religious views don't agree.

    🛎Reproductive rights do NOT fall under oversight of our federal government. This is federal overreach. 💣This violates the US Bill of Rights; separation of church and state. 45 and his lot are imposing their version of Christianity on the American people and pushing it into our legislation. ⚔️This is paramount only to treason and the Supreme Court needs to handle before a huge number of women complain to the UN about gender crimes and take their case to an international 🌎 court as a violation of our human rights.

    Thus penalizes women who can not afford abortions so they're left for those done by non-professionals or will lead to unwanted children.

    No. Keeping funding away, will only impact low income women who need the services the most.

    Federal funding should be provided for all conditions in which the abortion is provided.

    The Hyde Amendment is one of the most nefarious examples of politicians interfering in women’s health decisions. It specifically – and deliberately – harms low-income people by withholding Medicaid insurance coverage for abortion care. Every year is a new chance to eliminate this unfair policy. One federal bill – the EACH Woman Act – would put an end to this fight once and for all. This legislation restores abortion coverage for everyone who needs it, regardless of income level.
