The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission | Take Action: PRENDA, as the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act is also known, would make it a federal offense for anyone to perform or to accept payment for an abortion with knowledge that such an abortion is sought on the basis of the sex of an unborn baby. The bill would also make it a federal crime to transport a pregnant woman into the U.S. or across state lines for the purpose of undergoing such an abortion. In addition, individuals who coerce a pregnant woman to abort her baby based on the unborn child’s sex could face prosecution or civil penalties under the bill. A woman who undergoes a sex-selection abortion, however, could not face penalty.
Surprisingly, no federal ban yet exists on this terrible practice. Email your Congressman to urge support for the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (H.R. 3541). Or call (202) 224-3121.
