Alternatives to Abortion Program Receives Funding

The House Appropriations Committee on General Administration included an additional $1.5M in funding for the alternatives to abortion program, resulting in a total appropriation of over $2.5M for fiscal year 2016.  This program helps women facing an unplanned pregnancy to receive pre and post-natal care, parenting skills, drug treatment, education support, and other support up to the child’s first birthday. Next up, the funding must be considered by the House Budget Committee.
