For three years, PRI has been urging Congress, through articles and testimony, to ban sex-selection abortions. We are happy to report that the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PreNDA) — a bill which would do just this — will come before the House of Representatives tomorrow afternoon!
PreNDA was introduced by Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) and was
the House Judiciary Committee on February 16, 2012. An earlier
congressional hearing, at which Steven Mosher testified in favor of the legislation, was held on December 6, 2011.
It is important that you call your Congressman urging him to vote YES on PreNDA (H.R. 3541).
This is especially important because the legislation is being considered
by the House under “Suspension of the Rules.” This means that a two-thirds
majority will be necessary for passage. The vote will be close.
Please contact your congressman NOW and tell him that you support this
act that will save many thousands, or even tens of thousands of lives each
year, and help put abortion on the road to ultimate extinction:
