Title: ●Ensuring that Department of Health and Human Services Funds Do Not Support Morally Coercive or Discriminatory Policies or Practices In Violation of Federal Law 
Abstract: The Department of Health and Human Services proposes to promulgate regulations to ensure that Department funds do not support morally coercive or discriminatory practices or policies in violation of federal law, pursuant to the Church Amendments (42 U.S.C. section 300a-7), Public Health Service (PHS) Act section 245 (42 U.S.C. section 238n), and the Weldon Amendment (Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2008, Pub. L. No. 110-161, section 508(d), 121 Stat. 1844, 2209).This notice of proposed rulemaking proposes to define certain key terms. Furthermore, in order to ensure that recipients of Department funds know about their legal obligations under these nondiscrimination provisions, the Department proposes to require written certification by certain recipients that they will comply with all three statutes, as applicable.
