WASHINGTON (AP) -- The House has passed legislation that would
bar teaching health centers that receive federal funds under the new health care act from using the money to teach abortion techniques.
Rep. Virginia Foxx, the sponsor of the measure, says she wants to make it "crystal clear" that taxpayer money is not being used to train health care providers to perform abortions.
The North Carolina Republican's proposal was offered as an amendment to a bill that puts funding restrictions on a teaching
program in President Barack Obama's health care act.
The amendment passed 234-182, over the objections of some Democrats who said it would prevent medical residents from learning
a basic procedure in women's health care. The bill must still be
considered by the Senate.
