House to Vote On Sex-Selective Abortion Next Week, Protecting Girls in the Womb is Highest Priority

Washington, D.C. – With Congress taking up H.R. 3541, known as the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), next week to ban sex-selective abortion, President and founder of Live Action Lila Rose released the following statement:

“The United States is one of the few industrialized democracies where it is still legal to abort a baby girl just because of her gender. The brutal practice of targeting baby girls through sex-selective abortion is happening across the world and is spreading at an alarming rate, and Live Action will release information in the coming days showing sex-selection abortion has made it to America, too. We applaud this move by Congress to protect these young girls and look forward to this legislation going to the floor this coming week.”
