Summary

                            To provide for a moratorium on Federal funding to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc.

Introduced in House
Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2017

This bill prohibits, for a one-year period, the availability of federal funds
for any purpose to Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., or any of its
affiliates or clinics, unless they certify that the affiliates and clinics will
not perform, and will not provide any funds to any other entity that performs,
an abortion during such period. This restriction does not apply in cases of rape
or incest or where a physical condition endangers a woman's life unless an
abortion is performed.

The Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture
must seek repayment of federal assistance received by Planned Parenthood
Federation of America, Inc., or any affiliate or clinic, if it violates the
terms of the certification required by this bill.

Additional funding for community health centers is provided for the one-year
period described above.
