(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.

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?
Some people simply have a strong aversion to girls.
Get over it.
Reading the posts here I would say everything that needs to be said has been said, and Yes we all know that Romney is almost as bad as Obama. ALMOST.
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.
These people are unspeakably vile. The whole administration desperately needs an exorcism.
Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood for the purpose of eugenics.
Imagine if someday science identifies a liberal gene and mothers start aborting babies that have it.
That I could live with for a few years.
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.
But why would they want to? Liberals would be more likely to want to abort kids showing a conservative gene.
Imagine there’s no liberals, its easy if you can ...
This is going to be an excellent issue come fall.
0bama shoots himself in the foot again!
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.
Now you're messin' with a Hero of The Left. Hypocrisy is a word that doesn't appear in their hate-filled language.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Murdering a baby because she is a girl is as sick as the muzzie honor killings.
a lot of very personal people would decide to abort you if they had it to do over again, Baraq.
Aborting girls? Hmmm. Malia and Sasha? Didn’t think of it?
