HB 135 would prohibit a person from performing, inducing, or attempting to perform or induce an abortion on a pregnant woman who is seeking the abortion because of a test result indicating Down Syndrome in an unborn child or a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome in an unborn child.

Anyone who violates this law would be guilty of a felony of the fourth degree.  A physician may have their medical license revoked by the state medical board and be liable in a civil action if they are found to have violated this provision.
