Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2019 or the PRENDA Act of 2019
This bill creates new federal crimes related to the performance of sex-selection abortions (i.e., abortions based on the sex or gender of an unborn child).
It subjects a violator to criminal penalties—a fine, a prison term of up to five years, or both.
It also authorizes civil remedies, including damages and injunctive relief.
A woman who undergoes a sex-selection abortion may not be prosecuted or held civilly liable.
