The Republican-led House this week overturned a regulation then-President Barack Obama put in place to protect Title X funding, prompting criticism from Democrats and others over the move's impact on women's health care.
The House on Thursday scrapped a rule that barred state and local governments from withholding federal funds from family planning providers that offered full reproductive services, including abortion.
“With this bill, Republicans are demonstrating that they will stop at nothing to limit women’s access to health care,” a spokeswoman for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told NBC.
The Republican-sponsored H.J. Res. 43 passed in a 230-188 vote, largely along party lines.

At his Thursday news conference, President Donald Trump wasted little time getting to one of his favorite subjects: bashing the "fake news media."
But Trump did take a moment to single out one example of an organization he believes is doing it right.
The White House distanced itself Friday from a Department of Homeland Security draft proposal to use the National Guard to round up unauthorized immigrants, but lawmakers said the document offers insight into the Trump administration's internal efforts to enact its promised crackdown on illegal immigration.
A lucrative outdoor trade show that's been staged in Salt Lake City for two decades announced Thursday it will be leaving Utah over the latest disagreement with state leaders about their stance on public lands.
The Outdoor Retailer show made the announcement just hours after a conference call intended to smooth discord between industry leaders and Gov. Gary Herbert ended with both sides disappointed.
Herbert's office called it offensive that the show won't even let Utah bid for future shows after so many years of support. Utah's Democratic chairman meanwhile blamed the state's GOP's "far-right agenda" for costing the state the $45 million in direct spending the show brings annually.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says Republicans intend to overhaul health care and the tax code this year without Democratic help.
In the past, McConnell has condemned Democrats for passing "Obamacare" in the first place without any Republican votes, claiming that approach set the law up to fail.
But now McConnell is promising the same approach himself, indicating partisanship and polarization will continue under President Donald Trump.
