Discrimination that starts in the womb

From Fox News:
A bill that would ban sex-selective abortions failed to muster enough support to pass the House Thursday following a contentious debate.

The final vote was 246-168. Though a majority voted in favor of the bill, this particular proposal required a two-thirds majority to pass -- supporters of the bill fell 30 votes short.

This debate captures the blindness of the abortion-obsessed left. Even the moderator is taken aback...

  1. This is really sick. From the Telegraph's Tim Stanley:

    "A bill put before the House to outlaw abortion based upon gender (generally targeted at females) has been defeated. Thanks to Democratic opposition, it failed to muster the necessary two thirds of the vote to pass. To put this bill into context, sex-selection abortion is so awful that it’s illegal even in China. Hillary Clinton and many leading feminists have condemned sex-selection abortion, too. But House Democrats evidently disagree with this moral consensus. So, too, does President Obama."
