Parental Involvement

Full Bill Text

S. 201 would make it a crime to knowingly transport a minor to another state to obtain an abortion without satisfying a parental involvement law in the minor’s resident state.

The bill provides an exception for an abortion that is necessary to save the life of a minor whose life is endangered by a physical disorder, illness, or condition.

A person who violates this law would be subject to criminal penalties—a fine, up to one year in prison, or both. 

This bill prohibits an individual who has committed incest with a minor from knowingly transporting the minor across a state line to receive an abortion.
