Congress Considering Lifting Ban On Abortion Funding For Peace Corps Volunteers

National Journal Daily: Is Congress Going to Lift Its Ban on Abortion Funding for the Peace Corps’ Rape Victims?
“Current law allows for an exception to the ban on federal funding for abortions in the event of rape, incest, or life endangerment. Unless you’re a Peace Corps volunteer. … Without support from both chambers, attempts to change the policy have repeatedly fallen flat…” (Novak, 6/23).
