Page 481, line 27, strike "or state statute".

(This amendment prohibits state funding of abortion done because of the fetus' physical deformity or mental deficiency. The proposed change conforms Virginia's policy on funding abortion services under Medicaid to the federal Hyde policy, under which Medicaid abortions are funded only when the life of the mother is in danger and in cases of rape and incest.)
