No expenditures from general, special, or other non-general fund sources may be made out of any appropriation by the General Assembly for providing abortion services, except as otherwise required by federal statute.  However, nothing here shall prevent a physician from providing medical assistance to preserve the life of a pregnant woman provided that every possible measure shall be taken to preserve the life of the unborn child of the pregnant woman.".
