Skip to comments.Killing Girls Is Bad, Killing Boys Is Okay (Hillary)

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is upset about abortion. Well, not abortion per se. But some abortions. Of girls. Apparently killing boys is okay.
Abortion is one issue never likely to disappear. It sets protection of life and liberty in apparent conflict and raises challenging issues such as responsibility and privacy.
But the issue can't be avoided. The bottom line of abortion is a dead baby. No amount of obfuscation and euphemism can hide the obvious. And if abortion is a legal right, beyond regulation by government, then motivation is irrelevant. If you have a right to kill all babies, you have a right to kill girl babies.
However, Secretary Clinton, a supporter of unrestricted abortion, appears disturbed by the logical outcome of her policy preferences. In commenting on her international agenda for women, she observed that in some nations "girl babies are still being put out to die." Moreover, she explained: "Obviously, there's work to be done in both India and China, because the infanticide rate of girl babies is still overwhelmingly high, and unfortunately with technology, parents are able to use sonograms to determine the sex of a baby, and to abort girl children simply because they'd rather have a boy. And those are deeply set attitudes."
Secretary Clinton's remarks received surprisingly little comment from those she should have most offended -- other advocates of abortion "rights." Pro-lifers suggested that Secretary Clinton was a traitor to the abortion cause, but Laurie Carlsson defended the secretary's "nuanced view" on an issue that is "neither simple, nor clean-cut along lines of political beliefs or moral values."
Yet Secretary Clinton challenged two fundamental precepts of the case for legalized abortion. First, she tied the "infanticide rate of girl babies" to sex selection abortions.

America so is blessed with an administration that's composed of asinine, boring communists that are so full of themselves they need an enema.
What a conflict for them.
LOL. Her Thighness is definitely losing her mojo.
I’m so sick of these idiot goons!
It’s interesting how often liberal causes collide. I love watching their heads explode.
It also sets the squishy foundation that makes every high-minded principle of "progressives" a complete farce.
It's a joke to claim to be for "social justice" and "civil rights" and NOT stand for sanctity of life.
And in their hearts liberals know that contradiction exists, and that is the root of their defensiveness when any of their principles are challenged.
“Abandon all logic, ye who enter liberalism”
OK. Change gay to Transsexual and the same applies.
Imagine if there ever was found a “gay” gene?
Having a Constitutional right to an abortion, at any time, for any reason, would not be the case for liberals anymore...
At least one liberal admits that their views on abortion are not "clean-cut" on moral values --and as a foundational principle of modern Liberal thought, results in their entire platform floating around on shifting sand--
and in their hearts they know it, which is precisely why they're so angry and defensive when challenged on anything.
"Abort girl children"????
I thought abortion only terminated a pregnancy, or removed a clump of cells, or excised the products of conception, or something like that.
Is Hillary saying that abortion kills "girl children"?
Will she ever see the moral implications of that?
Once you start admitting that abortion kills a child, what comes next?
It's amazing the things that come out of pro-aborts' mouths. "Sin makes you stupid" (Mark Shea) Does it ever!
This country is desperately in need of adults at the helm.
"Obviously, there's work to be done in both India and China, because the infanticide rate of girl babies is still overwhelmingly high, and unfortunately with technology, parents are able to use sonograms to determine the sex of a baby, and to abort girl children simply because they'd rather have a boy. And those are deeply set attitudes."
I aree. I can't see a loving God sending a beautiful innocent baby to earth with a homo gene and then condeming it to hell.
Yes, but is there a 'liberal' gene?
Interesting compromise between pro-life and pro-choice: Hillary thinks we should cut our abortion rate in half by telling the moms to keep the girls and only kill their boys. I guess in the sick world of the Clintons, that’s progress.
