HR 732 & S.369- The Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act

TThe Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA) would make it illegal to take a minor across a state line to evade the requirements of a pre-abortion parental involvement law in the girl’s home state.

Most states have either a parental notification or consent law, but not all. In some cases, a girl can be transported by an older boyfriend or other adult across a state line in order to have her baby aborted without the girl’s parents knowing. CIANA would bar anyone from transporting a minor to another state for the purpose of circumventing a parental involvement statute. It would also require an abortionist to notify the parents of a minor from out of state that their daughter is seeking an abortion from him.

In the House, CIANA is numbered H.R. 732; in the Senate, it is S. 369.
