Obama opposes banning abortion based on gender

WASHINGTON, May 31, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - President Obama opposes a House measure slated for a vote Thursday to ban the practice of abortion based on the unborn child’s gender.

ABC’s Jake Tapper reported Wednesday that the statement came after White House spokesman Jay Carney had declined to comment on the administration’s view of the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA).

White House deputy press secretary Jamie Smith later in the evening said in a 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.”

The statement puts the administration in line with Planned Parenthood, which has also opposed the bill. The abortion group this week confirmed that it had no policy against sex-selective abortions as new undercover videos were published online showing two of its employees, one in Texas and one in the Margaret Sanger Center in New York City, encouraging patients seeking abortions because the child is a girl.

In a statement Thursday morning, National Right to Life called Obama’s opposition to the bill “appalling.”

“It is appalling, but not surprising, that President Obama now stands with the pro-abortion political committees and his Hollywood donors, rather than with the coerced women, and their unborn daughters, who are victimized in sex-selection abortions,” said NRLC Legislative Director Douglas Johnson.

If we didn’t have abortion, we wouldn’t have this “MORAL’ problem.

What if we could figure out if the kid was going to become gay?

The moment that happens, Obama’s head might spin so fast it would develop a gravitational pull.

Don't you just love it when the most blatantly intrusive administration in American history tries to pretend it doesn't want to intrude? These nitwits can't even come up with halfway convincing hypocrisy!

Simple solution: Make it illegal to disclose the gender of the baby until after the abortion or the beginning of the third tri-mester.

AS well as his RAT party - the RAT party's holy sacrament is ABORTION. Conservatives must get to the position where Roe v. Wade can be overturned and allow the States once again to take back the ABORTION law making.

Exactly. You don’t hear much about the “gay gene” anymore. Probably that’s mainly because it doesn’t exist; but, also likely because the GLBT (GLBTXBP...) lobby realized the implications of there being such a marker.

This is nothing new. The progressives have always been eugenicists. They consider it to be the “enlightened”, “scientific” point of view. Anti-eugenicists are, to them, backwards and anti-science.

I just wish his mother would have aborted him. January 2013 can’t come soon enough.

Gender based abortion is wrong, but trying to pass a bill now is futile (Democrats have the Senate) and just lets Obama bang the “Republicans hate women” drum all the way to the election.

Come now....I'm pretty sure momma got paid big bucks so Obama's "supposed" father could go to school. IIRC, they never even lived together.

Sc*** the birth certificate. Let's have a DNA test. I'm not even convinced that "momma" was "momma"......despite the birth certificate. His whole life is lie after lie after lie.

This entire topic is senseless. For if we (I mean persons with any morals at all!) are aghast at the concept of choosing to abort a child due to gender (almost always females), then does that lessen the immorality if we accept that boys can be equally selected for extinction?

No! Abortion always kills a tiny, helpless child, a human being, one of God’s children. It matters not if the child is selcted because of gender. The reason we are so appalled is because once a certain segment is targeted, then the affected segment can now be visualized with human characteristics. For instance, now we can imagine a sweet little girl child who might be wearing a frilly pink dress at her first birthday - she is now the target of an abortionist’s suction pump or scalpel. If the child is a little boy, then we can humanize him in our mind as a cute little tyke with his first haircut, and a spoon in his hand, pounding on his highchair and a handful of blue frosting all over his sweet face!

The reason that Planned Parenthood supporters will not support laws which criminalize gender selection is that that makes the unwanted child into a person, who anyone with a heart would want to protect!

Anyone who claims to be “pro-choice” while opposing abortions for gender choice is so incredibly hypocritical it’s beyond belief.

The simple fact is that if the laws allow for abortion, the reason behind it simply don’t matter. I’ve long been of the belief that “pro-choice” homosexuals will be screaming bloody murder if a gene is identified that will allow a fetus to be identified as homosexual, and the mother decides to abort because she doesn’t want a homosexual child.

Wanna bet that on that day there’s a large scale conversion of homosexuals to support pro-life positions?
