WH: Aborting a Baby Because It's a Girl Part of 'A Very Personal and Private Decision'
CNSnews.com ^ | 5/31/12 | Fred Lucas

Posted on 05/31/2012 2:15:25 PM PDT by ColdOne

(CNSNews.com) – The White House is opposed to a bill that was proposed in the House that would ban sex-selection abortions.

In defending President Obama's opposition to the bill, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said it would force abortionists into the position of trying to determine the "motivations" behind a "very personal" decision.

During the White House press briefing Wednesday, Fox News reporter Ed Henry asked, “since the president has been outspoken about being against gender-based discrimination, how can you allow gender-based abortion?”

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responded that President Obama is against discrimination in all forms, but the legislation under consideration would penalize doctors.

Aborting a Presidential term in its fourth year is also a personal and private decision, that is why voting should not be handled by Acorn and other public groups.

Why is it that they think that the fact of it’s being a “personal decision” somehow justifies it? The decision to eat someone’s face is a personal one, but that’s hardly an ennobling factor.

If Mitt keeps flipping in response to these more and more outrageous revelations from Barack Obama, by the time Nov. rolls around he will be claiming a platform hardly distinguishable from Attila the Hun. Whether he would mean it is a whole nother question.

I agree with Obama on this one; if we are going to allow people to murder their children their is no reason to limit it to male children.

I don’t want the affirmative action that has emasculated American men in college admissions, hiring, and promotions to now deplete our numbers by protecting female babies from the saline syringe or vacuum tube.

They know that using any legal means to stop any murder of babies will eventually be extended to stop all baby murders; maybe Obama really did go to school.

Yup, and the House very deftly outed Barack with this move. Cheese whiz, the bill didn’t even have to hit the Senate (where it would doubtless die a committee death) in order to get this public knee jerk out of Obama.

Jay Carney, how does it feel to be playing Harry Potter on behalf of Voldemort???

Let’s suppose we’re talking about a pregnancy that’s the result of a sperm bank donation. As a result of .... something... let’s say for hypothetical example that the baby produced looked “too black” for the taste of the prospective white parent(s). How would you feel about a “race-selective” abortion, then Mr. unqualified President?

There is no such thing as a genuinely “non-moral” man. People always live by morals. The more wicked ones choose more twisted and inverted morals.

Yeah. It could be a personal decision to off one’s spouse, neighbor, or co-worker, because they are annoying. This could set a whole new precedent in murder defense.

Much as the whole abortion-legality issue is distasteful, we have, heretofore, been told it was necessary for a woman’s health. Now how do they hang this gender selection reasoning on the woman’s health?

They also played the race card. It is racist to contend that someone is aborting a girl..because we all know that Asian’s are the most likely perps.
Sex determination is a big industry and GE makes big buck’s selling those scanners made in India.

Using a deluxe GE scanner for sex determination sounds to me a lot like using a cannonball to shoot a fly. Isn’t it possible to get this reading, genetically, from the amniotic fluid?

I suppose it could be used for that. Officially these deluxe scanners, which can construct clear, non-noisy movies that are even artfully colorized, were for purposes that are very pro-life. And I think they still are mostly used for that. The pixilated windshield wipers are sufficient to see gender, if genetic tests fail.

I thought the decision WAS supposed to be made between a woman and her doctor. Or between a woman, her doctor, and her God.

Now the doctor doesn’t have to be in on the decision; that’s too personal. Curette, please.

"Murdering a baby because she is a girl is as sick as the muzzie honor killings."

The Mulim thinking about women is so deep in the abyss of human degeneracy, we in the West could not imagine it is as deep as it is. Their world is upside down where little boys are the preferred sexual experience and little girls are altered to approximate the experience of little boys (i won't elaborate more about this atrocious practice). Let's say that it is absolute contempt for women--women are filthy to them and only breeders. The closest approximation to their cultural thinking of women is that of a slave owner to a slave.

The Left has this same animus towards the unborn human being. If this is a trend towards the accommodation of the Muslim culture, this means unborn female human beings are being looked on as the lowest form of life.

We must conclude that the Left has no value for human life. Once human life ceases to be of value, humans become slaves for the government masters. Under Marxism this devaluation of human life begins at conception, and ends at death.

'A Very Personal and Private Decision'

Hey Carney, don't forget to mention that it's always always always a decision that is greatly "agonized" over with much sobbing and soul-searching, and is never never never made lightly, even for sex-selection reasons, or for reasons of a pregnancy coming sooner than planned after the older sibling's birth, or for reasons of a husband's promotion that would require moving to a new city at a date close to the expected birth date of the (formerly) wanted child. All of these are to be considered as Gut-Wrenching, Agonizing, Heart-rending, Anguished, Tormenting decisions!

And don't forget, Carney, to toss in that surefire debate-winning argument: The fact that a 9-month old baby that's already starting to move down the birth canal with the first contractions is merely a hunk of lifeless tissue, just like a fingernail .... so that means that to tell a woman she can't have the full-term baby's skull pierced by a sharp scissors like a pithed lab frog, would be just as outrageous as telling her she can't cut her nails.

Now, lots of uneducated troglodytic neanderthals might witness such a Medical Procedure with the scissors spilling the brains and blood of the silently screaming infant, and believe they're looking at something barbaric, horrific, evil and ugly beyond words.

But the Politically Evolved intellectual elites witness the same procedure and instead they see pink clouds and rainbows and doves and colored balloons, and hear choirs of cherubs rapturously singing "Hallelujah! A Woman's Right To Choose has been exercised!"

[Note: The term "Liberal" was abandoned years ago, soon followed by "Politically Correct / PC". And even "Progressive" is starting to lose its lustre. So please switch over to "Evolved" or "Politically Evolved" when referring to the elites. It's the new buzzword of choice for all the cream of society. Thank you for your obedience.]

Abortions are already race biased - the numbers are about 41% for minority abortions in NYC. The liberals don’t care, frankly - they use race as a weapon to steal power. If they cared about minorities they would bar unskilled illegal aliens from taking labor away from the 50% ghetto unemployed. They would also outlawed these teachers’ unions that have destroyed education in the inner cities. These problems go one for decades and the Democrats look the other way, because it is about political power, it is not about helping people.
