Description

Advocates warn that the Prenatal Discrimination Act would force physicians to report on patients they suspect of having an abortion based on the fetus’s sex or race without having any real way of knowing. They say it is trying to outlaw abortions based on sex or race. Democratic lawmakers have called it a nightmare. But it made its way to the U.S. House of Representatives committee floor late Thursday. Representative Judy Chu of California says it is a piece of legislation that would impose criminal penalties on providers and limit the reproductive choices of women of color and all women. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/15/prenatal-discrimination-act-house-hearing-asian-stereotypes http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
