Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act

This bill creates new federal crimes related to transporting a minor across state lines for an abortion.

It makes it a crime to knowingly transport a minor to another state to obtain an abortion without satisfying a parental involvement law in the minor's resident state. A parental involvement law requires parental consent or notification, or judicial authorization, for a minor to obtain an abortion.

The bill prohibits an individual who has committed incest with a minor from knowingly transporting the minor across a state line to receive an abortion.

Finally, it makes it a crime for a physician to knowingly perform or induce an abortion on an out-of-state minor without first complying with parental notification requirements.
