SALT LAKE CITY -- A Republican state senator is working on a bill to stop Utah women from getting abortions because they don't like their baby's gender.
State Sen. Margaret Dayton tells ABC 4 in Salt Lake City she has a rough draft of her "Gender Selection Abortion Prohibition" bill. She says she's getting feedback from other lawmakers, and the measure may be debated at the legislative session next year.
Dayton tells the station she believes sex-selective abortions are a concern, and says bills similar to hers have passed in other states.
She says her proposal may include a ban on race-specific abortions, which would prevent women from ending their pregnancies because they don't want to have a child of the father's race.
