History records much about civilizations that sacrificed children to false “gods” or perhaps killed infants because the sex of the child wasn’t wanted.
Certainly the world today is too sophisticated to become involved in this kind of activity, right? Unfortunately that’s not the case. Vic reported that a newspaper in India says doctors are so desperate to hide the evidence from sex-selection abortions that they are feeding the remains to dogs.
Believe it or not, the mentality of sex-selection abortions has gained traction here in the United States. As proof, Vic played undercover audio cuts from www.liveaction.org. These cuts, from counseling sessions, expose the very real problem of sex selection abortions (gendercide) that take place at abortion clinics throughout America.
A bill to outlaw abortions based on the child’s gender received a majority of votes in the House of Representatives on Thursday but failed to receive the two-thirds margin of support needed for passage. H.R. 3541—The Prenatal Non-Discrimination Act, would make it a federal offense to knowingly perform a sex selection abortion, coerce a woman into the procedure or transport a woman across state lines into the U.S. to obtain such an abortion. The woman herself is not liable for prosecution.
President Obama has announced his opposition to the ban claiming that it would result in subjecting doctors to criminal prosecution if they fail to determine a sex-selection motivation.
Listeners also heard audio from Jay Carney, President Obama’s press secretary, who attempted to defend the president’s position on the matter while at the same time claiming to oppose gender discrimination in all forms.
