Liberals Support Sex-Selective Abortion (They Just Don’t Want to Admit It)

By Heather Mathews for PPSIMMONS         

 Last night, Jake Tapper of ABC News contacted White House Press Secretary Jay Carney for a statement on the current administration’s position regarding H.R. 3541, otherwise known as PRENDA (the Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act of 2012.)

Carney could not immediately provide a statement; however, deputy press secretary Jamie Smith responded in a later statement:

“The Administration opposes gender discrimination in all forms, but the end result of this legislation would be to subject doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine the motivations behind a very personal and private decision. The government should not intrude in medical decisions or private family matters in this way.”1

What the administration fails to note- within Section 5 of the bill2:

RULE OF CONSTRUCTION- Nothing in this Act shall be construed to require that a healthcare provider has an affirmative duty to inquire as to the motivation for the abortion, absent the healthcare provider having knowledge or information that the abortion is being sought based on the sex or gender of the child.

Well, either way, the Obama administration is going to be a little ticked with the passage of this bill last night through the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 20-133.  According to a press release issued by Arizona Congressman Trent Franks:

"The very bedrock foundational principle that gave birth to America was the conviction that all human beings are children of God and created equal in His sight. In 1847, Frederick Douglass said, 'Right is of no sex; truth is of no color, God is the Father of us all--and all are brethren.'

"I know when the subject is related in any way to abortion, the doors of reason and human compassion in our minds and hearts often close, and the humanity of the unborn can sometimes no longer be seen. But this is an issue upon which all Americans should be able to find agreement, regardless of our party affiliations or even our beliefs about abortion.

"Our innate sense of human fairness should make it abundantly clear that aborting a little baby because he or she happens to be black or because he or she has been arbitrarily deemed 'lesser' is fundamentally wrong, representing a betrayal of the precious truth that all men are created equal and are stamped with the Imago Dei on their souls.

"I am convinced this is the civil rights battle that will define our generation, and, by the grace of God, I look forward to this vital measure's consideration on the House floor and its ultimate passage."

The legislation outlaws abortions performed on the basis of the child's sex or race. It also outlaws the coercion of any woman to obtain either a sex- or race-based abortion.  A minority baby is currently five times more likely to be aborted than a white baby, and nearly half of all black babies' are aborted, with over 70 percent of abortion clinics being located in predominantly minority neighborhoods.4

Opponents, prior to the passage of the bill, were unamused by the attempt of pro-life supporters to bring PRENDA to the table.

“Somebody decided politically that it was a difficult place to put people in,” House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters Wednesday afternoon. “It’s a political effort, not a substantive effort.”5

The lunacy of the left overwhelms me.

“The Republican majority continues its War on Women in a new and creative way: by attempting to couch legislation that would destroy women’s fundamental constitutional rights as a woman’s rights law. It is cynical, but creative,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., said. “The preference for male children is a real, if limited, phenomenon in the United States. Some women face familial and community preference to have male children, and that pressure can increase with each subsequent birth. But this does nothing to help those women.”6

Blind Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng, who spoke out against forced abortions in his native China, captured international headlines this month and GOP aides said the leadership hoped to capitalize on the momentum of that awareness to ensure that sex-selection abortions are not legal in the U.S.7

“For most of us, Mr. Speaker, ‘It’s a girl’ is cause for enormous joy, happiness and celebration,” Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., said on the House floor. “But in many countries including our own, it could be a death sentence. Today the three-most dangerous words in China and India are, ‘It’s a girl.’ We can’t let that happen here.”8

As I’ve written previously9, this IS a concern here.  With the release of an undercover video by Live Action10, it is clear that organizations such as Planned Parenthood are at least prepared for women and their partners to ask about such things; we can see that the “workers of iniquity” employed there have no qualms about helping someone obtain a late-term abortion, as most ultrasounds cannot detect the sex of the baby until approximately four or five months into the pregnancy.

Psalm 106:35-40 (KJV)
But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works.
And they served their idols: which were a snare unto them.
Yea, they sacrificed their sons and their daughters unto devils,
And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.
Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own inventions.
Therefore was the wrath of the Lord kindled against his people, insomuch that he abhorred his own inheritance.

Proverbs 6:16-17 (KJV)
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood…
