Sex-Selection Abortion Bill

Updated: Thursday, April 11 2013, 08:05 AM EDT
A bill proposed in the state House would ban sex-selection abortions in North Carolina

Abortion providers could be sued or face civil fines reaching $100,000.

Litigation could be initiated by the pregnant woman, her relative or another doctor.

A primary sponsor is Rep. Ruth Samuelson of Charlotte, who spearheaded passage of a 2011 law placing more restrictions on abortion.

A federal judge struck down a portion of the law.

Another bill filed Wednesday would expand the type of medical providers who can refuse on moral and religious grounds to participate in procedures that result in abortion.Sex-Selection Abortion Bill
