Republican Congressman Jason Smith is introducing legislation on Wednesday to stop healthcare providers from aiding conservators in forcing contraception on individuals without their consent, a bill tied to Britney Spears

Among the many stunning allegations Spears revealed in her trial last month was that her team of conservators, led by her father, prevented her from having her IUD removed because the team did not want her to have more children.

Called the 'CIRCUS' Act, Smith's bill specifically targets healthcare providers and would prevent them from participating in the numerous federal health programs - such as Medicaid, Medicare, and Tricare - if they deny removal of an intrauterine device or other contraceptive device without the approval of an individual’s conservator or knowingly prescribe contraception to an individual subject to a conservatorship without the written consent of such individual. 

The legislation would not affect Obamacare participants as the exchanges are not directly administered by the federal government. 

Smith, the ranking member on the House Budget Committee, also worked on healthcare issues related to the challenges faced by people living in rural areas. His congressional district is made up heavily of farm land.
