Statement on State Flexibility for Health Care

Today, the House of Representatives passed legislation overturning a last-minute Obama Administration rule from the Department of Health and Human Services that requires states to provide Title X grant funding to organizations that offer abortions.

Congressman Moolenaar (R-Midland) co-sponsored and voted for the legislation in the House today. He released the following statement.

“This legislation overturns President Obama’s last-minute attempt to coerce states into funding organizations that perform abortions. It is often state government that is closest to the people and understands their needs best. If this legislation is signed into law, it will restore the ability of states to best decide how to use federal health care funding to meet the needs of their residents.”
