Amend the bill, as and if amended, Part IB, Section 117, GENERAL PROVISIONS, page 533, after line 2, by adding an appropriately numbered proviso to read:

/ (GP: Family Planning Funds) The Department of Health and Human Services may not accept federal funds for family planning. None of the state funds appropriated for family planning may be expended to directly or indirectly subsidize abortion services or procedures or administrative functions and none of the funds appropriated herein may be paid or granted to an organization that provides abortion services. An otherwise qualified organization may not be disqualified from receipt of these funds because of its affiliation with an organization that provides abortion services, provided that the affiliated organization that provides abortion services is independent of the qualified organization. An independent affiliate that provides abortion services must be seperately incorporated from any organization that recieves these funds. An organization that provides abortion services where the life of the mother is at risk and the termination of the pregnancy is incidental to the lifesaving intervention is excepted from the above restriction on state family planning funds and may receive state family planning funds, provided that the physician shall act in accordance with the standard of care to preserve both the life of the mother and the life of the pre-born child./
