The U.S. House of Representatives has adopted an NRLC-backed amendment to prohibit discrimination against pro-life health care providers.

The U.S. House of Representatives has adopted an NRLC-backed amendment to prohibit discrimination against pro-life health care providers. This is done by providing guaranteed funding, about $230 million over the first five years, in grants to “teaching health centers” (THCs) for graduate-level training in the fields of obstetrics and gynecology.  The new program was targeted to federally funded community health centers and family planning clinics. The law, known as the Foxx Amendment, also prohibits the use of any federal funds to provide abortions or training in abortion, with narrow exceptions.

Invasion of privacy is the intrusion into the personal life of another, without proper cause. The United States Supreme Court has ruled that there is a limited constitutional right of privacy.  This includes a right to privacy from government surveillance into an area where a person has a “reasonable expectation of privacy” and also in matters relating to marriage, procreation, contraception, family relationships, child rearing and education. However, records held by third parties such as financial records or telephone calling records are generally not protected unless a specific federal law applies.
