HB 611 would require an organization, institution, or facility that performed or assisted in performing an abortion that was not necessary to save the life of the mother or that encouraged or counseled a woman to have an abortion that was not necessary to save her life, to make an annual accounting of any and all funds received pursuant to Title X.

According to Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri:

[HB 611] requires detailed grant reports by Title X family planning agencies that also provide or refer for abortions. Title X agencies are barred by Federal law from providing abortions and required to provide information about the option of abortion if asked. Detailed accounting—and annual audits—of how Title X funds are used is already a requirement of the funding.

STATUS

Similar to HB 1375, which failed to pass in 2014.
