Full Bill Text

HB 2159 would prohibit a person from knowingly transporting a minor across a state line with the intent to obtain an abortion without the consent of the minor’s parent or guardian unless the minor is emancipated or has been granted a court order.

Any person who violates this provision would be guilty of a class E felony. They would also be civilly liable to the minor and the person or persons required to give consent to an abortion.

A court may award damages to the person or persons adversely affected by a violation of this provision including compensation for emotional injury without the need for personal presence at the act or event, and the court may further award attorney’s fees, litigation costs, and punitive damages.

Any adult who engages in or consents to another person engaging in a sex act with a minor which results in the minor’s pregnancy would not be awarded damages under this provision.
