Title: Substitute Amendment to Unborn Victims of Violence Act

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to adopt a substitute amendment that establishes a federal criminal offense for an individual whose assault on a pregnant woman interrupts or terminates the pregnancy.

Highlights:

  • Calls for a fine and/or prison term of up to 20 years if the assault resulted in injury to the fetus.
  • Calls for a fine and/or prison term up to a life sentence if the assault terminated the pregnancy.

NOTE: THIS IS A SUBSTITUTE AMENDMENT, WHICH REPLACES THE ENTIRE TEXT OF THE LEGISLATION WITH A NEW TEXT. THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE SUBSTITUTE BILL TEXT DIFFERS FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE TEXT CAN VARY GREATLY.
