Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act: (CIANA): passage of revised bill

House Roll Call No. 479
109th Congress, 2nd Session

Passed: 264-153 (see complete tally)

On September 26, 2006, the House for the second time approved the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act (CIANA).  By a vote of 264-153, the House combined its bill with a narrower parental notification bill (S. 403) that had passed the Senate on July 25, 2006, and sent it back to the Senate.  The legislation, as approved by the House, would:  (1) make it a federal offense to transport a minor across state lines to obtain an abortion, if this abridges her parent's right to be notified or give consent under the home state law; (2) make it a federal offense for a parent who impregnates a daughter through incest to transport that daughter across state lines for an abortion (the Boxer-Ensign Amendment); and (3) require an abortionist to notify one parent before performing an abortion on a minor who is a resident of a different state (with certain exceptions).  Roll call no. 479, September 26, 2006.  [On September 29, 2006, a minority of 42 senators blocked further action on the bill in the Senate, killing it.]
