Neugebauer’s Pro-Life Language Added to Education Reform Bill, Passes House

Today, the House of Representatives voted to include the language from my Protecting Life in Funding Education (PRO-LIFE) Act (H.R. 463) in H.R. 5, the Student Success Act. Neugebauer released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 5:

Hardworking taxpayers shouldn’t be footing the bill for political groups and abortion advocates to operate in our nation’s public schools and advance their attack on the unborn. I’m pleased my colleagues in the House adopted the concepts of my Pro-Life Act and committed to protecting the rights of the unborn.

This common sense measure would restrict funding to school districts that contract with third party ‘school-based health centers’ unless they certify they won’t perform abortions and won’t provide abortion referrals or materials to students. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress to move this forward.

Neugebauer’s Pro-Life language is supported by:
