Bill description: HB 507 forbids the state government and public health districts from funding certain procedures.
Does it increase government spending (for objectionable purposes) or debt? Conversely, does it decrease government spending or debt?
HB 507 reduces government spending by forbidding the state of Idaho or a city or county within it from "expending, or in any way transferring, funds to any individual or organization that is a provider of abortion as defined in section 18-604, Idaho Code, notwithstanding any other provision of federal law to the contrary."
Exceptions are made in cases where an "abortion is necessary to save the life of the woman, or in cases of rape or incest as determined by the courts, or where no court determination has been made, if reported to a law enforcement agency."
HB 507 further reduces government spending by imposing a similar prohibition on public health districts.
