We shouldn't abort female fetuses with any more frequency than male fetuses. Seems like a no brainer, right? And that seemingly simple—even seemingly feminist—logic is what anti-abortion lawmakers are relying on when they introduce PRENDA bills.
PRENDA stands for Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act, and several states have passed these laws, which criminalize the practice of seeking an abortion based on the sex of the fetus.
What could be so bad about that? Lots. To tell us more about why PRENDA laws are particularly insidious and racist, we're joined by two guests from the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum, Communications and Community Engagement Chair Winnie Ye and NYC organizer Becca Asaki.
