I think the Bill of Attainder Clause Applies to Approps, No?

If I understand correctly, and perhaps I don't, the key question is an appropriations rider that would explicitly prohibit money from going to Planned Parenthood, and the PP is explicitly so named rather than it being a formula such as "an organization that provides abortion and family planning services" or some such.

If this is correct, why doesn't it violate the Bill of Attainder Clause? This was one of the issues with the bill targeting ACORN.

Lack details, so am curious.
