1.6a federal program. This subdivision applies only to state-sponsored health programs that
1.7are administered by the commissioner of human services. For purposes of this section,
1.8abortion has the meaning given in Minnesota Statutes, section 144.343, subdivision 3.
1.9 Subd. 2. Severability. If any one or more provision, section, subdivision, sentence,
1.10clause, phrase, or word of this section or the application of it to any person or circumstance
1.11is found to be unconstitutional, it is declared to be severable and the balance of this section
1.12shall remain effective notwithstanding such unconstitutionality. The legislature intends
1.13that it would have passed this section, and each provision, section, subdivision, sentence,
1.14clause, phrase, or word irrespective of the fact that any one provision, section, subdivision,
1.15sentence, clause, phrase, or word is declared unconstitutional.
