Aborting Children Because of Gender?

The Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act (PRENDA) will come to a vote today in the House of Representatives. The Hill relates, PRENDA would:
“[I]mpose fines or imprisonment on doctors who perform abortions they know are motivated in part by the fetus’s gender. The bill would also require medical professionals to tell law enforcement if they suspect an abortion has been performed for that reason. ”
Republicans wrote this bill to end sex-selective abortion and save many of the unborn that are aborted simply because of their gender. Because the bill was brought to the floor under suspension of the rules, it will require a two-thirds majority to pass in the House of Representatives.
