Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act Vote Recap
Yesterday, the House voted on the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA) (H.R. 3541). The bill would have banned sex-selective abortions, which experts have demonstrated are on the rise and predict that it will continue to be a trend in the United States. In support of the bill, Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle stated that:
“Sex selection abortion is the ultimate war on women…if we don’t allow women the right to be born, they are denied all other rights.”
