The House is planning on voting on a bill voting to outlaw abortions based on gender. Right now if the unborn is discovered to be a boy or girl and the parent wants the other sex, the baby can be aborted. The Pharaonic regime has come out against the bill.
TAPPER: The House is, I think, this afternoon preparing to take up a bill that would ban gender selection as a factor in abortions in this country. And I was wondering — I haven’t a statement of administration policy; I was wondering if the White House had a position on that?
CARNEY: I will have to take that as well. Been focused on other things, but I will get back to you.
Note: The White House got back to me this evening to say the president opposes the bill.
White House deputy press secretary Jamie Smith says 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.”
Personally I would wait until after the election for this type of legislation. But luckily, the Obama Regime has come out against the bill and in support of gender based abortions. Personally I hope if the GOP wins the White House and gets complete control of government they don’t waste their time on this social stuff. Our nation is in debt, the economy shaky and the American dream dying. I hope that is their priority. That said, I find abortions based on a baby’s gender despicable and it should be outlawed.
