SB 818 would have prohibited a state agency from awarding grants to an entity that provides abortion or abortion referrals, contracts with a person or entity that provides abortions or referrals or is an affiliate of a person or entity that provides abortions or referrals.

The purpose of the bill would be to prohibit the state from giving federal grant money to Planned Parenthood for education programs on sexually transmitted diseases because even though none of the money funds abortion, abortion is one of the services provided by Planned Parenthood.
