Sex-selection abortion vote reveals schism between abortion and feminism
A recent vote in the U.S. House of Representatives revealed the deadly irrationality of abortion rights ideology, as 161 Democrats and 7 Republicans voted to continue to allow the deliberate and systematic destruction of developing baby girls. The vote against a long-overdue ban on gender selection abortions, which overwhelmingly end the lives of disfavored girls before birth, revealed a real schism between abortion and feminism.
How can feminism possibly preserve legal sanction for a practice that discriminatorily eliminates females?
As long as we as a society provide legal sanction to the violent destruction of babies of either gender simply because they fail to fulfill the desires or plans of their parents, we will continue to deplete successive generations at the rate of over one million human beings per year and expose ourselves as among the most ruthless societies in history.
