Protecting Life in Crisis Act

This bill specifies that federal funds allocated for COVID-19 (i.e., coronavirus disease 2019) response efforts may not, in general, be used for abortions. Current law generally prohibits the use of federal funds for abortions through language included in appropriations bills, such as the Hyde Amendment.

The bill also restricts the use of federal tax credits or other federal funding for health insurance coverage if the coverage includes abortions.
