A recent poll shows that 77% of Americans are opposed to sex-selection abortion. This is the real war against women. Sex-selection occurs, for the most part, because couples do not want a little girl. This odious practice is being targeted by the Prenatal Nondescrimination Act. While this act might pass the House, it will probably die in the Democrat-dominated Senate.
The President is indicating that he is against this legislation. He is too far into the pockets of Planned Parenthood to support this legislation.
This act should be passed. Abortion because the baby is female is horrific. As David Bass puts it: “pro-choice ideology claims to place the highest value on women and womanhood. Yet they are forced to accept, as both moral and legal, the aborting of an unborn baby strictly because she is female. To do anything less would violate their core beliefs about the un-personhood of the fetus and the absolute autonomy of the parents (specifically, the mother) in deciding whether to terminate the unborn life.”
Pro-choice advocates want abortion at any cost and for any reason, but sex-selection abortion is what we get when we allow abortion for any reason. Murdering women because they are women is the ultimate misogyny, and defending it is complicity with such misogyny. This simple fact of the matter is that pro-choice advocates are not pro-choice, they are pro-abortion. See the following articles by David Bass at the American Spectator see here, and here.
Update – June 1, 2012 Wall Street Journal reported that the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act failed to pass the House.
