Senate to vote on abortion selection measure

The Arizona Senate votes Monday on a bill to prohibit abortions sought because of the race or sex of the fetus or the race of a parent.

The measure would allow suits and civil fines against abortion providers who knowingly provide abortions for selection of race or sex.

Supporters and opponents disagree whether there’s evidence that abortions to select race and sex occur in Arizona.

The House has approved the bill already, but Senate passage would send it back to the House to consider changes made by the Senate.
