Nearly all gender-selection abortions kill females for the sole reason that they are female. It is the ultimate misogyny. Of course, all abortions (except those that save the life of the mother) are immoral, but any time we can limit any abortions that is a victory.
The South Dakota Legislature has given final approval to a bill that bans abortions sought because of a fetus’s gender.
. . .
The bill would make abortions sought because of a fetus’s gender illegal. The measure would make it a Class 6 felony, carrying a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $4,000 fine, for a doctor to knowingly perform or attempt an abortion sought because of a fetus’s gender.
Supporters say a pregnancy should not be terminated because parents don’t like the gender of a fetus.
But opponents say the measure is unconstitutional.
Live Action and Lila Rose have done a great job of exposing how gender-selection abortions are done not just in China and India but in the U.S., all with the blessing and support of “feminists.”
Even if this is overturned because of faux Constitutionality reasons, this is still great politics. It highlights that abortion kills real human beings, and how some are deemed worthy of life and others are not. And it especially exposes the false “war on women” meme when the pro-aborts aggressively fight gender-selection abortion bans. It is hard to claim you are pro-women when you fight for the right to kill them.
We should put forth similar legislation banning abortions that would kill gays or those with a predisposition to be gay. Yes, I know they aren’t “born that way,” but there is nothing wrong with using the false arguments of the Left against them. Interestingly, when I’ve asked Leftists if they would support such a ban they have always chosen abortion over gays.
Passing even selective bans on abortion, such as those against women or gays, is a great opportunity to highlight who really has the best interests those people at heart.
Let’s continue to be as innocent as doves and as wise as serpents when protecting innocent human life.
P.S. Also remember that abortionists like Planned Parenthood hide statutory rape, incest and sex trafficking. Is it good for women if you hide these crimes so you can make money off abortions?
