Pro-Life Analysis of H.R. 2471, Fiscal Year 2022 Appropriations

Yesterday the House of Representatives considered H.R. 2471, the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2022, in two divisions: Division 1 (divisions B, C, F, X, Z, and titles 2 and 3 of division N) and Division 2 (all remaining divisions). Division 1 passed the House by a vote of 361-69. Division 2 passed the House by a vote of 260-171, 1. (Full Bill Text)

Division 1 included Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations and retained two instances of longstanding pro-life language. The rest of this analysis refers to Division 2.

This bill retains the longstanding, bipartisan status quo: the pro-life protections that have been the subject of consensus for decades were all retained, and funding of problematic funding streams was not increased. The $2 million earmark for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte was removed.
