A proposed bill under consideration in the U.S. House of Representatives would make it a federal crime to transport a teen across state lines to get an abortion if her home state has a parental notification or consent law. Groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union, the Center for Reproductive Rights and the Planned Parenthood Federation are opposing the bill.
