For the Division of Maternal, Child and Family Health

1. For the purpose of funding family planning services, pregnancy testing and follow-up services, provided that none of these funds appropriated herein may be expended to directly or indirectly subsidize abortion services or administrative expenses. Abortion services include performing, assisting with, or directly referring for abortions, or encouraging or counseling patients to have abortions. Family planning services are preconception services that limit or enhance fertility, including contraception methods, the management of infertility, preconception counseling, education, and general reproductive health care. Follow-up services are services that supplement initial consultations for family planning services and pregnancy testing but do not include pregnancy or childbirth care. Nondirective counseling is defined as providing patients with a list of health care and social service providers that provide pregnancy, prenatal, delivery, infant care, foster care, adoption, alternative to abortion and abortion services and nondirective, non-marketing information in regard to such providers. Such list may categorize the providers by the service or services they provide. An organization that receives these funds may not directly refer patients who seek abortion services to any organization that provides abortion services, including its own independent affiliate. Nondirective counseling relating to pregnancy may be provided. None of these funds may be paid or granted to an organization or an affiliate of an organization that provides abortion services. An organization that receives these funds may not display or distribute marketing materials about abortion services to patients. An otherwise qualified organization shall 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 as determined by the conditions set forth in this section. To ensure that the state does not lend its imprimatur to abortion services, and to ensure that an organization that provides abortion services does not receive a direct or indirect economic or marketing benefit from these funds, an organization that receives these funds and its independent affiliate that provides abortion services may not share any of the following:

(a) The same or similar name;

(b) Medical or non-medical facilities, including but not limited to business offices, treatment, consultation, examination, and waiting rooms;

(c) Expenses;

(d) Employee wages or salaries; or

(e) Equipment or supplies, including but not limited to computers, telephone systems, telecommunications equipment and office supplies.

An independent affiliate that provides abortion services must be separately incorporated from any organization that receives these funds. An organization that receives these funds must maintain financial records that demonstrate strict compliance with this section and that demonstrate that its independent affiliate that provides abortion services receives no direct or indirect economic or marketing benefit from these funds. An independent audit shall be conducted at least once every three years to ensure compliance with this section. If the organization is an affiliate of an organization which provides abortion services, the independent audit shall be conducted at least annually. The audit shall be conducted by either an independent auditing firm retained by the department of health or by an independent auditing firm approved by the department and retained by an organization receiving these funds. Any organization receiving federal funds pursuant to Title X of the federal Public Health Services Act may perform services which are required under the federal act, but otherwise prohibited pursuant to this section if:

1) Specifically directed by United States Secretary of Health and Human Services to perform such services by written order directed to the organization; and

2) Such order is final and no longer subject to appeal, and

3) The refusal to perform such required services will result in the withholding of federal funds to said organization.

Federal statutory or regulatory provisions or guidelines of general application shall not constitute such written order as described herein.

2. If any provision of subsection 1 of this section is held invalid, the provision shall be severed from subsection 1 of this section and the remainder of subsection 1 of this section shall be enforced. If the entirety of subsection 1 of this section is held invalid, then this appropriation shall be in accordance with subsection 3 of this section; otherwise subsections 3 and 5 of this section shall have no effect.

3. For the purpose of funding family planning services, pregnancy testing, and follow-up services that are provided directly by the Department of Health or provided directly by government agencies of this state or provided directly by any political subdivision of this state or provided directly by community mental health centers organized pursuant to sections 205.975 to 205.990, RSMo, or provided directly by community action agencies organized pursuant to sections 660.370 to 660.374, RSMo, through contractual agreement with the department, provided that none of the funds appropriated herein may be expended to directly or indirectly subsidize abortion services or administrative expenses.
