Ohio Proposes “Sex-Selective Abortion Ban”


Spurned on by the alleged instances of “gender-based” abortions in the country, Ohio is considering trying to ban the practice.

Via the Columbus Dispatch:

[Rep. Cheryl] Grossman and Rep. Matt Lynch, R-Bainbridge Township, modeled the bill after the federal proposal known as the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act [PRENDA]. The bill would require medical professionals to report any violations, and patients would be exempt from liability.

“I believe that every life is precious, and I am appalled that this practice exists in our nation,” Grossman said. “The innocent lives being ended by this horrific and inexcusable practice must be stopped immediately in Ohio.”

PRENDA failed to pass the House nationally when proposed by Rep. Trent Franks.
