War on Women (and potential women)
Just to gloss a bit on this particular leftwing meme, I’d like to note the following:
1) CNS: “The number of American women who are unemployed was 766,000 individuals greater in May 2012 than in January 2009, when President Barack Obama took office, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”
The Parental Non-Discrimination Act is expected to come to the House floor Thursday, according to the office of Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa). The bill would make abortions based on a baby’s gender illegal by creating a penalty for those who knowingly have gender-selective abortions, coerce a woman into having one, or provide transportation to a woman so she can come to the U.S. to have a gender-selective abortion.
“There are more than two hundred million missing little girls who were aborted for the sole reason that they were girls,” King said in a statement.
“The three most dangerous words are ‘it’s a girl,’ but decision time does not happen when you find out the sex of your baby. PRENDA (the House bill) will protect unborn babies from being aborted because it’s about a child, not a choice. I will continue to defend the unborn. There should be no question where to stand because the choice is clear — every child deserves the right to a fulfilling life.”
“We are the only advanced country left in the world that still doesn’t restrict sex-selection abortion in any way,” said Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), the bill’s sponsor. “This evil practice has now allowed thousands of little girls in America and millions of little girls across the world to be brutally dismembered.”
Franks and others say there is evidence of sex-selection abortions in the United States among certain ethnic groups from countries such as China and India, where there is a traditional preference for sons.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the nation’s largest abortion provider, issued a statement opposing the legislation.
Just thought I’d put this all into perspective for you.
But then, Sandra Fluke. So, you know. Checkmate, wingnuts!
