Currently, women can receive late-term abortions for the purposes of sex selection. While U.S. law prohibits sex discrimination in employment, education, housing, health insurance coverage and athletics, there is no such protection to the unborn child. PRENDA highlights a particularly egregious and systematic form of violence against women and their unborn daughters, who are overwhelmingly the target of sex-selected abortions.
PRENDA imposes criminal penalties on doctors who knowingly provide sex-selective abortions, and those who persuade women to seek such abortions. It also bars federal funding from any organization which does not comply with the law, and would require medical professionals to report any suspected rule violation.Priests for Life has a little bit more about the pending legislation: Franks to Introduce Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act:
Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-2) has reintroduced this measure to bar any abortion performed because of a baby’s race or sex. Introduced in the previous Congress as HR 1822 [now HR 3541], the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act establishes penalties for abortionists who terminate babies because of skin color or gender.It's time to pass this bill and end the war on prenatal women.
