Text of the Pregnant Women Support Act Available

This bill (HR 6145) was introduced in the House last week, but the text just became available on the Thomas site - read it here. More analysis when I get a chance to wade through this lengthy proposal.

Sections, giving you a basic idea of what it covers, include:
  • TITLE I--COLLECTING AND REPORTING ABORTION SURVEILLANCE DATA
  • TITLE II--DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION FOR ABORTION SERVICES
  • TITLE III--MEDICAID AND SCHIP COVERAGE OF PREGNANT WOMEN AND UNBORN CHILDREN
  • TITLE IV--HEALTH INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN AND NEWBORNS
  • TITLE V--INCREASING WOMEN'S KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THEIR PREGNANCY
  • TITLE VI--SERVICES REGARDING POSITIVE TEST DIAGNOSIS OF DOWN SYNDROME OR OTHER PRENATALLY DIAGNOSED CONDITIONS
  • TITLE VII--IDENTIFICATION AND TREATMENT OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST PREGNANT WOMEN
  • TITLE VIII--PUBLIC AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
  • TITLE IX--SUPPORT FOR PREGNANT AND PARENTING STUDENTS
  • TITLE X--SUPPORT FOR PREGNANT AND PARENTING TEENS
  • TITLE XI--FEDERALLY-FUNDED HOMES FOR PREGNANT AND PARENTING WOMEN; ADOPTION COUNSELING; PARENTING SKILLS
  • TITLE XII--EXPANSION OF ADOPTION CREDIT AND ADOPTION ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS
  • TITLE XIII--PROVIDING SUPPORT TO NEW PARENTS
    (I'll link these up, add tags, etc. later)
