BREAKING: The House of Representatives failed to pass a bill that would ban sex-selection abortions. With a 246-168 vote, the bill did not obtain the two-thirds majority necessary to pass. Republicans voted for the bill on a 226-7 margin while Democrats opposed banning sex-selection abortions on 161-20 vote margin.
The bill would have made it a federal offense to knowingly do any one of the following four things: (1) perform an abortion, at any time in pregnancy, knowing that such abortion is sought based on the sex or gender of the child; (2) use force or threat of force . . . for the purpose of coercing a sex-selection abortion; (3) solicit or accept funds to perform a sex-selection abortion; or (4) transport a woman into the U.S. or across state lines for this purpose. However, a woman upon whom a sex-selection abortion is performed may not be prosecuted or held civilly liable for any violation.
