Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act or PRENDA

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.
