H.R. 3580 would require all 50 states to submit abortion reports to the abortion surveillance system of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention by making Medicaid payments for certain family planing services and supplies contingent on submission of abortion data to the CDC.

The bill requires the CDC to maintain a surveillance system to collect aggregate data on abortions in the United States.

Abortion Reporting Requirements

Each state would be required to report the following information for each abortion:

  • Maternal age in years;
  • Gestational age in completed weeks at the time of the abortion;
  • Maternal race;
  • Maternal ethnicity;
  • Maternal race by ethnicity;
  • The abortion method type;
  • Maternal marital status;
  • Previous pregnancies of the patient, including the number of previous live births, previous induced abortions, and previous miscarriages;
  • Maternal residence (state or county); and
  • Whether the child survived the abortion.

The federal government would be required to publish an annual report on all the data collected.
