California Dems vote down bill outlawing sex-selection abortion

It’s official: the feminist movement and their willing servants in the California Democratic Party are willing to see in utero females killed because they are female in order to protect their existing legal right to abortion. You can’t make an abortion omelet without breaking a few zygotes. Daniel Nussbaum of Breitbart reports:

On Tuesday, thirteen Democrats on the California State Assembly Health Committee voted down a bill that would have outlawed the practice of sex selection through abortion.

The Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (AB 2336) ran into opposition by all of the Democrats on the committee, who saw the bill as a prelude to broader abortion restrictions, according to a report from LifeNews.com. Instead, Democrats introduced a resolution to condemn sex-selection abortion--but not to outlaw it.

The bill was introduced on May 6th by Assemblywoman Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield), who said in her opening testimony that "the U.N. estimates that upwards of 200 million girls around the world have been aborted merely because they were 'the wrong gender.'" She explained that countries like India and China are dominated by a male-child mentality, with mothers preferring future working men and family providers over the "burden" of baby girls.

Then I guess when they isolate the gay gene, we can select that out via abortion too, right?

This is going to get even more interesting as time goes on.

There's no way to legally justify the ban, or enforce it anyway.

If you can kill the fetus "for any reason", and you can find out the sex via ultrasound or whatever, then put two and two together.

There is no way to stop that, under current law.

But they’re now on record as saying it’s OK to abort girls because they’re girls.

That will change when they find the gene that causes people to gender misidentify or the "gay gene". Love to hear the argument that a "genderqueer" fetus has more right than the mother or a "normal" fetus.

Yep. If you want to abort your child, even with the sex-selection ban in place, what’s to stop you from giving another reason, even if the real reason is sex-selection?

If you listen carefully, they, like Ms. Sanger, are more about color selection...

You consider killing babies as something that is “interesting”? I’m glad we aren’t neighbors.

No, I consider the prospect of progressives facing the consequences of their hypocrisy interesting.
