Neugebauer and his 43 GOP cosponsors argue that school districts in a handful of states, including California and New York, are partnering with Planned Parenthood to provide health services to students. Sponsors of the bill argue that Planned Parenthood is already the largest abortion provider in the country, and that federal education funds should not be sent to schools that enter into these partnerships.
His bill is the Protecting Life in Funding Education (PRO-LIFE) Act, H.R. 1122.
Under the bill, school districts that partner with any third party health services provider would be denied access to federal education funds, unless the health centers certify that they won't offer students abortions or abortion-related services, such as referrals for abortions.
