Title: Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a bill that rescinds funds from Planned Parenthood.

Highlights:

  • Rescinds funds for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc. for 1 year unless Planned Parenthood certifies that its clinics and affiliates will not use funds to perform an abortion during that year (Sec. 3). 
  • Exempts certain abortions from the provisions of this bill, including abortions that are performed under the following circumstances (Sec. 3):
    • The woman’s pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest; or
    • The woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or illness that would place the woman in danger of death unless an abortion is performed.
  • Appropriates $235 million previously allocated to Planned Parenthood, to health centers that provide for a population that is “medically underserved” (Sec. 4).
