In re: Prohibition of Sex-Selective Abortions (A.6545-Crespo)

“By an overwhelming margin, Americans oppose the grisly practice of sex selection abortion—yet that practice is completely legal in the State of New York. Bill A.6545 – Crespo would make it unlawful for anyone to perform, or to attempt to perform, an abortion “with knowledge that the pregnant female is seeking the abortion solely on account of the sex of the unborn child.” Under this legislation, any licensed abortion provider could have his/her license suspended or revoked for knowingly or recklessly performing, or attempting to perform, a sex-selective abortion. NYCF supports this important legislation.”
