North Carolina Introduces Bill Banning Sex-Selection Abortions

by Admin on April 17, 2013

A North Carolina law banning abortions performed because of the sex of a fetus passed the state House Wednesday.

The bill would allow doctors and other health care providers to be “sued for damages and fined heavily if they perform abortions where gender is a significant factor in the woman’s decision,” reports The Charlotte Observer.

The bill’s sponsor, Republican Representative Ruth Samuelson, said sex-selection abortions are a problem in the state, although there is no data to back this conclusion.

Abortion-rights advocates say the legislation intrudes on the doctor-patient relationship, and undermines nonjudgmental, high-quality healthcare.
