Text of Stupack amendment (plus link)

Copy and paste from this link:

H.AMDT.509 to H.R.3962 An amendment printed in Part C of House Report 111-330 to codify the Hyde Amendment in H.R. 3962. The amendment prohibits federal funds for abortion services in the public option. It also prohibits individuals who receive affordability credits from purchasing a plan that provides elective abortions. However, it allows individuals, both who receive affordability credits and who do not, to separately purchase with their own funds plans that cover elective abortions. It also clarifies that private plans may still offer elective abortions.
Sponsor: Rep Stupak, Bart [MI-1] (introduced 11/7/2009) Cosponsors (None)
Latest Major Action: 11/7/2009 House amendment agreed to. Status: On agreeing to the Stupak amendment (A001) Agreed to by the Yeas and Nays: 240 - 194, 1 Present (Roll no. 884).

Update (11/19/09, 2:29P): The above copy and paste is NOT the actual text but only a description of it. To find the actual text, it seems (I haven't found it yet my self) that you have to turn to the parts of the "House Report" listed above ("printed in Part C of House Report 111-330").
