In keeping with the long-standing tradition of “progressives” to instinctively choose death over life, the recent defeat of a measure in the US House that would have outlawed abortion based on gender came as no real surprise to anyone who has been paying the slightest bit of attention to the liberal obsession with killing the unborn.
The White House expressed President Obama’s opposition to the measure in this 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," White House spokeswoman Jamie Smith said in a statement.Wow! The Obama organization is on record as actually opposing an expansion of government!
"The government should not intrude in medical decisions or private family matters in this way."
That opposition would be uplifting and inspiring were it not for the fact that abortion based on gender is such a vile violation of human rights and a practice worthy of government intervention.
Once again, the President and most Democrats are leading the way in stomping out innocent life and justifying that position with specious concerns about “personal and private” decisions.
Of course, the truth is that Democrats do not respect life as a sacred gift from our Creator.
Rather, the left sees the unborn as pawns in the political chess match that pits progressives against religious extremists, those right-wing terrorists who must not be allowed to trash women’s reproductive rights as guaranteed in the US Constitution and confirmed in Roe V. Wade in 1972.
It’s all about inalienable rights and the health of women—and the fetus be damned!
But how will the left react when medical science advances to the point where sexual orientation can be determined in a fetus?
When that technological capability becomes reality, how supportive will liberals be of expectant parents who choose, on a personal and private way, to abort a gay fetus, solely because of sexual orientation?
