Leader Cantor Statement on the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act

Posted on

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) released the following statement on the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA) of 2012:

“While I was disappointed that the Administration opposed the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act and we fell short of the two-thirds threshold needed for passage, I was heartened by the fact that a bipartisan majority of the House voted to end sex selection abortions. An overwhelming majority of Americans disagree with the abhorrent practice of aborting a baby based solely on sex, which nearly always targets unborn girls. The United States is one of the few countries in the world that does not have a law prohibiting sex-selection abortions, and we must continue our efforts to change that. I thank the House Judiciary Committee and Representative Trent Franks for their work on this issue.”
