Federal Bill Banning Sex- or Race-Based Abortions Introduced

December 4, 2011

On Nov. 29, U.S. Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) introduced the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, a bill that would hold abortionists accountable for the deaths of preborn babies targeted for their race or gender, WORLD News Service reports. "We see a clear anomaly in the birth statistics [among some populations]," Franks said. "It it's a first child, the boy-girl ratio is about what it should be, about 50-50. If it's a second child, then the boy statistics go way up. If both the first two children are girls, it goes way, way up. There is no question sex-selective abortion is a horrifying reality in the land of the free and the home of the brave." The bill, which Franks introduced for the first time in 2009, has 49 cosponsors.
