Senate and House Defense Spending Bills Include Ban on Overseas Abortions

Both the United States Senate and House versions of the defense spending bill maintain the ban on abortion at overseas military hospitals. The Senate and House bills authorize $268 billion in military spending. This is $6.6 billion more than President Bill Clinton’s administration requested and $3 billion more than allotted in the 1997 budget.
