Protecting Individuals with Down Syndrome Act
This bill creates new federal crimes related to the performance of an abortion on an unborn child who has Down syndrome.
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 such an abortion may not be prosecuted or held civilly liable.
