Life Legal Defense Foundation‘s analysis of the ACA:
Planned Parenthood would lose approximately $490 million in federal funds, which represents about 38% of its total annual budget. No taxpayer funds will be used to pay for insurance plans with abortion coverage.
The Planned Parenthood funding ban is only for one year. Also, other abortion providers will continue to receive state Medicaid reimbursement for abortions. Individuals and small businesses can still buy out-of-pocket abortion coverage.
The Republican-controlled Senate may not have enough votes to pass the AHCA with the pro-life provisions intact. House Republicans want to try to get the bill through the Senate using the budget reconciliation process, which only requires a simple majority of 51 votes. However, two of the 52 Republican senators—Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine—said they will not vote for any health care legislation that restricts abortion coverage. Unless one of them changes her mind, no pro-life bills or amendments are likely to pass the Senate during this term. It should be noted that Murkowski voted to defund Planned Parenthood in a landmark 2015 bill that contained the same defunding language as the AHCA.
