Stupak-Pitts Amendment

H. AMDT 509 to H.R. 3962 Stupak Pitts Amendment to ACA

Feminist Majority supported a NAY Vote

The Stupak-Pitts amendment to the Affordable Care Act proposed adding language that would limit women’s ability to purchase private health insurance through the health insurance exchanges that includes abortion coverage.

The amendment passed the House, but was removed from the Affordable Care Act in the Senate. The final Affordable Care Act did not include Stupak-Pitts.
